Friday, we took advantage of MoMA's free admission day (I think it's between 4pm & 8pm). We arrived at the museum shortly after 4pm and had no problem getting a free ticket. Afterward, we talked with some New Yorkers about how much we enjoyed the museum and thought the free day was wonderful. They were shocked that we were able to gain admission. They said that they only let the first 300 people into the museum and, normally, the line is around the block! We must have timed it perfectly!
Saturday, we spent the day on Canal Street, had a lunch of noodles in China Town, then espresso in Little Italy. Later, we walked through SoHo and made our way to one of my absolute favorite boroughs, Greenwich. This trip, it dawned on me why I like that area so much...it reminds me of Europe the most. For a minute, I felt like I had been transported back to Amsterdam.
Our last day in NY, we let ourselves get (sorta) lost in Central Park before going to the Met (museum...not opera). There were scattered showers, but we didn't care! Central Park was awesome.
We look related, don't we?
I was so excited to stumble upon strawberry fields...you know, the place where nothing is real. Just around the corner was the famous "Imagine" mosaic.
I really wish I had gotten a photo sans someone standing on the tiles. As you can imagine (Ba-dump-dump. Yes, pun intended), it was kinda crowded with people trying to get their photo on the tiles. C'est la vie.
The Met! Here's a view at closing time from the top of the stairwell. We took so long at Central Park, that we really only had time to speed through one gallery before closing. No worries, as you can see from above, I LOVED being silly in Central Park.
