I'm a *huge* muppets fan... major 80's kid who grew up on Sesame Street and the Fraggles. I was super excited to check out the Museum of the Moving Image's Jim Henson exhibit. We were like little kids, wide-eyed with big smiles, sneaking pictures of our favorite characters on display.
Mayor Bloomberg even loaned the museum his own Muppet, that was made in his likeness. Ha! They did a pretty good job capturing his likeness.
The exhibit will be on display through March 4-- way worth the trip to Astoria if you don't already live over here in my neck of the woods. (Go to Five Napkin Burger across the street for lunch or dinner after your visit!)
