  • Monet's Garden

    For the summer months, the New York Botanical Garden has created a garden in tribute to the historic French Impressionist artist, Claude Monet. Designed to change with the turn of the season, the garden on display emulates the same one in Giverny, just outside Paris which inspired his greatest arts including the iconic Water Lily Pond during the late 19th Century. The New York Botanical Garden version will also display two works never before seen in the U.S. along with evenings of live music, poetry, family arts and films. So, if you're searching for a retreat from the bustle of the city on a sweltering day, Monet's Garden is the perfect antidote! Cockpit USA will be there.

  • Celebrating 100 Years of NYPL

    To mark the 100th anniversary of the opening of its monumental Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, The New York Library is exhibiting the best of its collections to the public. The richly varied display of 'Celebrating 100 Years' includes significant relics of American history, from the handwritten diary on which Jack Kerouac based his infamous Beat novel On The Road to the first Gutenberg Bible brought into the country and the final draft of George Washington's farewell address. The centennial commemorative exhibition also explores the changing modes of communication, from samples of Sumerian cuneiform tablets, one of the earliest forms of writing to T. S. Eliot’s typescript of “The Wasteland” with notes by Ezra Pound. Divided into four sections, Observation, Contemplation, Society, and Creativity, the free exhibition gives an intriguing insight into the ever evolving face of human culture and upholds the library's philosophy that 'all knowledge is worth preserving'; something that we at Cockpit USA know all about!
