I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday - The Paley Center for Media


What: The Paley Center for Media

Where: 25 W. 52nd St.
            New York, NY

Who: All ages


Me - The Paley Center is a good place to go when you have free time in New York City. We went on a tour there, but, they don't always give tours. However, they have a library where you can watch videos of old TV shows and things. Even if you are not a member of The Paley Center you can go and watch videos for 90 minutes a day. It's open Wednesday through Sunday and admission to the library is free. It's a really a good place to go if you have time to kill in New York City.


Mom - The Paley Center for Media, which was formerly the Museum of Television and Radio, is a not exactly a museum in the sense that you go and look at things from the past in glass cases or anything like that. It is more of an interactive space dedicated to all media. You can go there to hear discussions or lectures or see panels related to various TV shows or other media. You can also go there to view various media. Their big event of the year is PaleyFest which occurs in the fall in both their New York and Los Angeles locations although the Los Angeles event is bigger. PaleyFest is all about the about the upcoming TV season. Upcoming shows are screened, and there are also panel discussions. Panels are made up of cast members and creatives from various TV shows. They also have viewings of various events and shows throughtout the year at the Paley Center. For instance, they recently they had viewings of the World Cup soccer games.You can also go there to watch old TV shows and other events in the Paley Center library. They also have exhibits related to media. It is free to visit the Paley Center and view one of their exhibits or spend up to 90 minutes a day viewing media in their library, but some events including PaleyFest do cost money. However, if you sign up for a membership you get advance access to tickets for events, discounts on tickets, and unlimited time in the Paley Center library. There are several different types of memberships with varying fees and different benefits that come along with each. You can also sign up for their newsletter for free at their website to receive an e-mail update of what events they will be having.
