Taking a Breather Under the Big Blue Whale in New York, NY
In the city that never sleeps, sometimes you need a quick second to rest your eyes. Deep within the American Museum of Natural History, there’s a seabed of sorts. Floating above the giggling school children, animated tourists, and lazy lovers is the life-size model of the biggest mammal in our world: the blue whale. While patrons buzz about the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life, peering into glass cases and fighting with museum maps, plop yourself down in the heart of the commotion. Be still and bathe in the blue light, letting the sounds of the city wash over you. Give your brain a break and take a couple of deep breaths while looking up at the belly of the big blue whale.
