Paley Center for Media: 52nd St btwn 5th and 6th Aves

I wanted to watch The Oprah Show's final episode with other fans and in NYC there was no better place than The Paley Center for Media.  I've been to a handful of events there for work but this time I just wanted to enjoy television (one of my favorite things) with other fanatics. There wasn't a dry eye in the place by the end of the show, but the "ugly crying" only touched a few viewers.

The Paley Center has numerous events that are open to the public (just check out the calendar online at Paley Center Info and register--many events are free!) and, of course, lots of events for members.  It is a great media resource and historical archive with two locations (one in LA and the other right here in NYC).

I thoroughly enjoyed the event and it couldn't have been easier.  They have a beautiful space (just next door to the famous 21 Club restaurant and across the street from a great Indian place called Bombay Palace) and they are very well organized.

If you are looking for something different and interesting to do, check out The Paley Center--one of the next events open to the public is "An Evening with Marlo Thomas" ($20 for general public and $15 for members).  They are very welcoming and just want to share their love for media. Join in if you get the chance.
