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 - Urban Glass

What: Urban Glass

Where: 647 Fulton Street
             Brooklyn, New York

Who: Ages 11 and Up

Me - Urban Glass is a place where they make glass. We went on a tour and learned how they make it. It was interesting. The tour was very quick though. We got to see people blowing glass and working on glass in other ways too. We got to see a lot of products they had made. There was also a store where they sold a lot of the glass stuff they had made. A lot of the glass items were really pretty. We also learned how they make neon signs. That was fascinating. I am not sure if would ever want to work with glass. It seems like it would be hard. Also, I am not very patient. It was still fun to learn about how they make glass though.

Mom - If you are looking for a unique venue, suitable for tweens and above, to visit, Urban Glass is a good choice. Urban Glass consists of two parts the Urban Glass Studio and the Agnes Varis Arts Center. At the Urban Glass Studio, you can find out all about working with glass as well as see demonstrations of experienced glass artists at work.You can also take a class and learn how to work with glass yourself. A variety of classes  and events are offered for ages 11 through adults. Private lessons are also availbale. If you just want to tour the facility, tours are offered Saturdays at 1:00 PM  or by appointment. The Agnes Varis Center is a gallery and a store. The Gallery, The Robert Lehman Gallery is free of charge and open to the public Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM. The Gallery offers changing glass related exhibits. In the store a variety of exquisite objects that have been created in the Urban Glass Studio are available for purchase. Whether you are curious to learn about working with glass or you are more interested in viewing the beautiful objects on display in the gallery and store or you would  actually like to some day create a beautiful work of glass yourself, Urban Glass is worth a visit.
