More possible stop-offs in New York, for those set to head for NecronomiCon Providence 2013 in August 2013…

* Nicholas Roerich Museum New York, 150 paintings on show from one of Lovecraft’s favorite artists. Free.

* A Beautiful Way to Go: New York’s Green-Wood Cemetery, a history exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York. Aka Greenwood Cemetery, a feast of neo-Gothic architecture and carving. Lovecraft visited this cemetery on a night walk with Sonia and others while in New York. Lovecraft’s story “The Horror at Red Hook” buried Robert Suydam there.

* The New York Historical Society has Swing Time: Reginald Marsh and Thirties New York, which looks like it should provide a fine insight into the seedier and more grotesque sides of the city in the 1930s.

* Journey To The Stars, the planetarium show at the American Natural History Museum. Tickets needed.

* The New York Public Library has The ABC of It: why children’s books matter, 250 items curated by children’s book expert Leonard S. Marcus. May interest some, as it might skew toward the fantastical elements in children’s books.

Already mentioned here: Divine Felines: Cats of Ancient Egypt at the Brooklyn Museum.
