An hour north and a world away from Manhattan, New York's Storm King Art Center boasts 500 pristine acres dedicated to the display of contemporary sculptures. Both a museum and park, the public space intermingles natural elements including the sky, trees, sloping plains, and bodies of water with work from such artists as Alexander Calder, Andy Goldsworthy, and Richard Serra. Bring a picnic, give Storm King an afternoon, and by dusk you'll likely be plotting a return visit.

please respond to jack45@uniontel.net about the poem, The Pilgrims I told you about. Thanks.
The poem The Pilgrims I can't find it. It starts out: Through the snow and cold the pilgrims went. With courage high and hearts content. I'm offering a reward to anyone who can find this poem.
