MONDAY 25 SEPTEMBER

Highlights – Philip Johnson’s Glasshouse, Dinner at Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse

Phillip Johnson Glass House

This morning we travel by coach to Connecticut for a tour of Philip Johnson’s Glass House. Designed by Johnson for his own residence, the house was derived from Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House and is an essay in minimal structure and the effects of transparency and reflection. Here we’ll tour the Glass House, Painting Gallery, Sculpture Gallery and Da Monsta.

The afternoon is at leisure allowing time to explore New York City at your own pace, maybe a bike ride through Central Park to help blow away the jetlag.

Welcome Dinner

Tonight we’ll gather for dinner at the Michael Jordan Steakhouse, located in the main hall of Grand Central, a magnificent Beaux Arts building.

Overnight: New York (B, D)
