Visit the American Museum of Natural History With Waitress’ Drew Gehling
Waitress’s Drew Gehling beats the summer heat by going to the American Museum of Natural History.
What started out as a way to keep his daughter occupied during the afternoon became a cherished ritual for the two. “We come, and we visit the blue whale almost once a week.”
For Gehling, the Rose Center for Earth and Space is a personal favorite within the museum.
“The level of science that has gone into those exhibits is unrivaled, and it just makes me feel lucky to be a New Yorker.”
“I always grew up going to museums but it’s only been recently that I’ve realized that as you grow, the museum always grows. Your perception of exhibits change as you change. So when you have a beautiful place like [the American Museum of Natural History], you get to constantly check in with the staples and with the new exhibits as well.”
When summing up summer in New York City, Gehling succinctly says “Sun.”
"You try to find places that are bright and sunny without being oppressively hot," Gehling laughs. "Which is a hard line to walk."
