Fun, immersive way to learn more about the city
I first found out about this app when visiting the New Museum last year and thought it was cool that I could use my own phone to navigate the exhibits, learning more about the artwork. It was a better, more immersive experience than simply reading the info card on the wall. I’ve since tried the app at home and find it’s a nice way to consume content and get little chunks of info on various sites in my neighborhood and other parts of New York. As a New York native, I find it fascinating how much I still learn about this city. The Gesso app helps me do that by giving me cool facts about architecture, art, history and culture. The beautiful visuals and user-friendly features make it a fun and pleasant app to use. I’m really excited for when we are able to do Meetups where we can get out and explore on foot together. I enjoy traditional walking tours and think this app will just add to that experience, using technology in an interesting way.
