A New York Day Trip to Dia:Beacon

Monday, October 10, 2016


The way I see it, rainy weekends in New York create just as much opportunity for adventure as those with blue skies. My boyfriend and I had intended to go apple picking on Sunday, but an extra gloomy morning re-routed us on a Metro North train up the Hudson Valley to Beacon, NY.

When you hop off the train at Beacon Station, you'll notice that most of your fellow passengers are headed in the same direction -- towards Dia:Beacon. As a 300 square foot contemporary art museum housed in a former printing factory, this site has been at the top of my must-see list. Each gallery is created to feature the work of a specific artist, with my (obvious) favorite being Dan Flavin's fluorescent creations. I'm no expert on modern art, but I'm always up for an artistically unique experience. 

The clouds cleared up just as we left the museum, and we finished off our day strolling along Beacon's waterfront. Surrounded by lush mountainside and only the sound of the Hudson River, we concluded our weekend with the best that autumn has to offer.
