Pompeii In New York City

Pompeii has plopped down in New York City. A new exhibit, “Pompeii The Exhibit: Life and Death in the Shadow of Vesuvius” has opened at New York’s Discovery Times Square. There’s something about the centuries-old story of Pompeii that never fails to captivate the general public. It ties into our end-of-days fears, that idea that at any moment, a disruption could simply wipe us all out. Life went on at Pompeii for 700 years, a rich and artistic culture before, on a fateful day in 79 A.D., Mt. Vesuvius erupted and buried the citizens and all their worldly goods under lava and ash.

The exhibit is curated by the Soprintendenza di Archaeologica Napoli e Pompei and runs through September 5.
