A moment of culture..


Archie-Royal-Portrait-Web Yesterday,  I went to look at office space with my friend and eventual partner in a business (but that is a story for later).  The office is located at 594 Broadway which is between Prince and Houston. 

The office was perfect, a slam dunk.  As we made our way back to the elevator, we passed MoCCA which is located right outside the elevator.  MoCCA is the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art.  I had read about the current show so we went in for a quick look. 

First of all, how many cities would have a random museum on the 4th floor of a building in what could be an office.  Not many.  The exhibit is the history of Archie.  It was great.

I grew up on Archie comics particularly at camp as a few always came in the care package.  I sent my kids Archie comics when they were at camp too.  I had read recently that Archie had married Veronica instead of Betty.  I guess he went for the cash.  LOL! 

Anyway, the exhibit is great.  Probably a blast with kids.  There is also the off-shoots such as Josie and the Pussycats, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and of course the Archie comics from the beginning to now.  It is funny to see how the 60's comics were a bit skewed with the times as well as the ones created currently. 

A quick trip if you happen to be walking around Soho.  Always nice to get a quick dose of culture when you were least expecting it.

    Do you remember when Veronica wore her dress made of fifty dollar bills? That knocked my socks off!
