Friday in NY
This is a view taken from the roof garden of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where Marty, Jessica, and I were this afternoon. The building with the diamond grid is the new Hearst Tower, where Jessica works (except on summer Fridays). I have yet to get the tour and lunch, but I will before the summer is over. Meantime, we saw the Clark Brothers' art collection at the Met, had tea in the patrons' lounge, walked our feet off, and then had fabulous Mexican food at Dos Caminos on Park Avenue South. When the bill came, there was no bill. Instead, an anniversary card from our kids. What a nice surprise! We are staying at the Hyatt Regency on the NJ side of the Hudson but the picture I took tonight came out fuzzy, so I will try again tomorrow when we get back to the hotel. We are one PATH stop from the World Trade Center, from whence we walked to the South Street Seaport (disappointingly more touristy and commercial than ever) and up through Chinatown and Little Italy, where we had lunch and picked up the bracelet we had left in May to be fixed. Took the subway up to 77th St. and walked to the Met - and this is where I came in. Today was a long day.
