We are a mother and daughter who both love to write. We decided to start this blog so we could spend time together doing something
we both love and share it with you. We specialize in reviewing fun places to go and fun things to do, but we talk a little bit about everything.
We would love to hear your views too.

Where-To-Go Wednesday -Bowne & Co.

 

What: Bowne & Co.

Where: 211 Water St.
             New York, NY

Who: All ages

   
 

Me & Mom - Bowne & Co. Printers in the South Street Seaport has been in business since 1775, and they are still a working print shop. It is also like a museum. They have all different kinds of old printers. The oldest ones have to be completely done by hand. That type printing is called letter press. You can see a demonstation of that printer as well as some of the other old printers they have. They are real cool. The man who gives the demonstrations or at least the one who did when we went there was really nice and really knowledgable and happy to answer questions, which there were quite a lot of. Even when the demonstrations are not going on, you can still go in the shop and view the old printers. You can also go next door to Bowne Stationers and purchase items like postcards and things that were made at the print shop. All in all, a visit to Bowne & Co is very fascinating.
