I got to see a highlighted tour of the Met, as well as a lovely tour of the Cloister and its quite pretty gardens the next day. The Cloisters gave me reason to go to Fort Tryon Park, with its arresting views of the Hudson and nearby New Jersey plus the George Washington Bridge.

A sensational museum. Spent a whole day in here and saw no more than a third. One could spend a week here. The collection of European paintings is stunning

Wonder exhibit as usual. The Met never disappoints!. Glad that we arrived early because it became quite crowded by the time we left (2:30PM) with more people arriving by the droves. The skip the line tickets did help in the morning.
