Recently I was in New York blowing my travel budget for the year.

I saw some great art, some OK art, and a lot of real crap.

Highlights? Apart from catching up with people (Hi Mike, Anne-Marie, Jane, Brian, Anne) there was Richard Serra at MoMA, Zoe Strauss at Silverstein Photography, Stephen Shore at the ICP, finding, by chance, one of Lawrence Weiner's manhole covers and New York Pizza.

And yes, China is the "BIG THING". All the dealers seemed to have Chinese artists on the books, lots of artist folders with recognisable (well, to me,) names. Some spaces I visited, I could have been back at 798....

Anyway, continuing an occasional series, people resting in galleries, I give you the Metropolitan Museum's roof garden.
