I had seen posters and promotions almost everywhere around the city for this exhibit. For a while it was almost impossible to get on the subway or walk the streets and not see a billboard for this exhibit. Although it was everywhere it didn’t catch my attention at first. It wasn’t untill I saw some of the photos from the exhibit that were displayed that I started to take an interest. The exhibit has been going on for two months now and it will continue to go on until the end of next month at the Brooklyn Museum. Click here for more information.

Midway through December, college campuses across the country are gearing up to celebrate the holidays before finals are over and students leave for the winter break. Stony Brook University is no different, as it recently hosted the Festival of Lights on the West Campus and the Lighting of the Windmill on the Southampton campus.
As a school that includes majors in environmental studies and sustainability studies, the windmill at Stony Brook Southampton represents a big part of a small campus.
The winter holidays are right around the corner and there are plenty of events going on in NYC that are fun, affordable and available for everyone to engage in. If you are looking for holiday festivities with a cultural twist, Harlem For The Holidays might be something you may be interested in.
