When my plane was grounded in NYC and my layover went from two hours to 24, I decided to turn my lemon into lemonade and make a day of it. I was strongly rewarded with some inspiring sites.
Santiago Calatrava's transportation hub was well worth the wait. Breathtaking in it's ambition, the structure achieves the feeling of a bird in flight, both inside and out.
Herzog & de Meuron's new tower, nearly complete, brings a welcome departure from the traditional skyscraper form.
And the MoMA PS1 gallery had some especially inspiring art installations by Cinthia Marcelle, Jenny Sabin Studio and Saul Melman.
