Scandinavia House

Located on Park Avenue, between 38th and 39th Streets, Scandinavia House is a local institution that serves as a means for Norway/Sweden/Finland/Denmark/Iceland to present themselves to NYC.  It’s a pretty cool little building.

The little display window at the front shows what the current and upcoming displays or events are.  This one was a bit unusual; it shows the face of a man severely affected by frostbite as part of a photo exhibit.  Yeah, those guys are a bundle of laughs.

The exhibits and all are wide-ranging.  They have a cafe and the ability to show films.  There are kids activities and lectures for adults.

In honesty, I keep planning to go there but just haven’t made the leap.
