Central Park and the Met

We are definitely on Eastern Time now and no longer first down for breakfast but woke with enough time for a cup of tea before heading downstairs. If I thought that this was going to be peaceful I was mistaken as James discovered that he could watch English football on the TV over here. There is no escape as I was confronted with Chelsea v Liverpool. A little later, heading out to the Met via Central Park and only a block from our hotel came across the Hell’s Kitchen flea market. Had I not been in decluttering mode at home, I am sure I would have discovered lots of goodies.

Walking through Central Park, still in the grip of winter, we did see some wildlife.

The Met is so full of good things, we had to be selective so focussed on American art and furniture then prints and photography. I love Arts & Crafts stuff and am exploring printing so enjoyed these sections very much.

In the museum store I found a small book on snowflakes, written by a physicist.It’s ironic that back in the UK there is enough snow for the first time this winter to enable me to try out macro-photography of snowflakes, but I am on the other side of the Atlantic. Emerging from the Met the sky was now blue and I was overjoyed to find a Strand Books stall and a few more books were purchased.

One thought on “Central Park and the Met

  1. Looking at this post’s photos again, I was reminded of a film I saw a long time ago that moved me. It’s called “The Fisher King” is set in New York and stars Robin Williams, Jeff Bridges and Amanda Plummer (Christopher Plummer’s daughter).

    I’m not sure if it would be your cup of tea, but I’ll mention it here just in case and you could watch the clip at this site! 🙂
