Flying High at the Museum of Chinese in America

kites-344654_640There are so many hidden gems in SoHo that it’s certainly hard to get to know all of them. One of them is at the Museum of Chinese in America where the work of Tyrus Wong is displayed. At 104 years of age, he is an artist born in Guangdong province, China who was raised in Sacramento and Los Angeles. Mr. Wong was actually noticed by Walt Disney in the 30s and 40s for his landscape paintings that served as the “visual development” for the animated film “Bambi.”

Visitors to the museum will see many of Wong’s kites which he has been making and flying on the beaches in California for decades.


Say I Love You in the Clouds

Now here’s an idea that people may want to take note of. The Trump SoHo New York is offering custom skywriting proposals. Here’s how it works. You arrange with the Trump hotel to stay in one of their suites. Gazing out of the window to the sweeping New York skyline, you’ll then see a customized “Will you marry me?” or “I love you” aerial message written in the sky. If you book the Trump SoHo Sky-High Engagement package you’ll get an overnight stay and a bottle of  Trump Winery sparkling wine to toast  to each other.

Of course, you can talk to the special event team at the Trump SoHo to see about getting in-room flowers, special treatments at their spa and more. Of course, this is only for those who can fork over the cash when they say “I Love You.” The package starts at $6500. Check it out and say it with style!
