Day trip to Dia Art Foundation – Beacon


March is about to end and Spring is about to come! The weather is getting much better the sunlight is brighter, the flowers are starting to blossom and central park is changing its colors! The other day I discovered a type of tree I hadn’t heard before and apparently there are some here in NYC. They are call Cherry blossom, their color is between pink and white. They are super nice and not so common, their color make them special and give that part of the park a different atmospher.  One of the famous spots where you can find them is in the west part of Central Park next to the big lake.

Other advantages I am starting to feel are the late sunsets that make you enjoy more plans with friends outside. I have been waiting long time to go and finally last weekend I could make it! Go to Beacon to visit the Dia Art Foundation! This huge old factory was turned into an art gallery to host minimalism art work. This building located in a small town one and a half hours away from NYC has become a pretty famous place for art lovers. It has famous art work of artist such as Walter de Maria, Michael Heizer, Dan Flavin, among others. So If you want to disconnect from the noise of the city and do some cultural activity this place is super recommendable! It is really easy to get there. There are trains every hour from Gran Central and you stop in Beacon. From there it is just 10 min walk with signs that guide to t the complex. And of you want to spend the day there after the visit you can walk to Main Street, which is the center of the town and you will find plenty of cafes and restaurant where to have lunch and have a walk around!

I highly recommend to go, so art lovers write it down and add it the list of things to do during the weekends in NYC!
