And and Rand Take Manhattan Day 3

A quick Day 3 Roundup! I have never been so full (of NYC cuisine and art!) Oh my goodness, I’m going to need to eat nothing but watercress and drink  hot water when I get home. I cleanse will be in order I think!

We had a slightly less hectic day today and enjoyed just hanging out and watching the locals do their thing. I was skeptical, but the J.P. Morgan Library Museum was incredible! We did a tour and a learned a lot about a guy I didn’t think would be very interesting but in fact WAS!

Lesson Learned!

It was closed for the long weekend though so we couldn’t go inside. Boo.

    Those are some great pix. I’m worn out just by looking at all the things you did! New York is exhausting but in a good way.

      It is exhausting, but somehow the city keeps you energized!

    New York, like all the other GREAT cities of the world, is just too much to take in all at one bite. You have to keep going back for little nibbles. Wouldn’t it be nice to live there for a couple of months and just soak it all in. Glad you having so much fun.

    i knew I was born in the wrong century! So from now on if someone calls me fat I can say “I’m sticking to 1500s beauty canons” 🙂

    Great post! You are really making me miss NYC, but I love seeing photos of one of my fave places on earth.

      Yes, I too was born in the wrong century, and perhaps even the wrong country! (I feel like I should be French somehow…)
