What to do in isolation

The city sleeps tonight. We can’t go out except for essentials. For me, going out to theater and museums is essential. But Governor Cuomo does not agree. Luckily there are many cultural institutions that are trying to help the shut-ins. They are streaming, usually for free, past performances or tours of their museums. I’ve listed a few below. But they are not only in New York, but around the world and likely in your community. Enjoy any of these you wish and share those you recommend.

The Metropolitan Opera is temporarily live streaming recordings from their archive

The Metropolitan Museum of art has a Met 360 feature they are offering for free to see exhibits at the main museum and even the Cloisters Museum near where I live

A whole host of art galleries in the city have free offerings you can find here…

Note that these links may no longer offer free product after life returns to normal but right now is the only way to experience these shuttered institutions.
