Revisited the New York Historical Society Museum

I just checked this journal and noted that I last visited the New York Historical Society Museum last February.  The main exhibit was Hudson Rising that describes200 year of ecological change and environmental activism along the Hudson River from the source in upstate New York to the NYC harbor.  The exhibit shows writings, paintings, drawings, literature, and photographs of the river over the past 200 years.  Hundreds of species of fish, birds, and plants are demonstrated.

There were several other exhibits, but I was especially amused by "Mort Gerberg Cartoons: A New Yorkers Perspective".  His works have appeared in the Saturday Review and The New Yorker among other publications.  I especially liked this drawing:

It is difficult to see, but the one on the right is Richard Nixon with Charlie Brown at Shea Stadium.
