New York City Trip
In case you missed it, the trip started here.
These were two buildings just down the street from our hotel. They were definitely made to be complementary works of art.
This is the famous Hello Deli that is often showcased on the David Letterman Show.
On our last day in NYC we decided to see Central Park and then head to the Metropoliton Mesuem of Art, more commonly known as the Met. This is a picture looking into Central Park.
Inside central park was this place where it looked like you could rent it out for weddings and stuff. It had really neat doors.
Here I am with one of the ponds of Central Park behind me. I imagine that Central Park is FAR cooler in the summer.
Inside Central Park is this building called the Swedish Cabin. As Kate's family is obsessed with everything Swedish, we took a bunch of pictures (all but his one not shown here).
This was a neat wooden fence that surrounded the Swedish Cabin. I don't known what kind of vine that is growing on it, but again, I bet it would've been cooler to see in the summer.
Looking out across the largest lake in Central Park.
This is one of the buildings that overlook Central Park. I swear I've seen this one on TV somewhere.
Kate in Central Park.
Here I am, on the way to the Met.
The Metropoliton Museum of Art.
I got to see a Salvador Dali. Always a highlight of a trip. This one is called 'Sistine Madonna.' (1958)
I KNOW I've seen this statue in a book or something before. It's some sort of study of motion. Unfortunately I forgot to take note of the artist and name to give you here. Anyone wanna help me out?
UPDATE: This is "Unique Forms of Continuity in Space" by Umberto Boccioni, who was a Futurist. This piece is said to have "speed and force" in its sculptural form. I still can't quite remember which textbook I saw this in or on...
A view of Central Park from inside the Met.
Vincent van Gogh, "Irises"
Claude Monet, "Bridge over a Pool of Water Lilies"
Jean-Franšios Millet, "Haystacks: Autumn"
Johan Christian Dahl, "The Eruption of Vesuvius"
Claude Lorrain, "The Trojan Women Setting Fire to Their Fleet"
Giovanni Paolo Panini, "Modern Rome"
The Met has this really cool section of old armor and weapons. These knights on horse were all in the center room of the exhibit.
Wow, that's so cool. Unfortunately most everything else was behind glass, thus not lending itself to good photography.
On the walk back from the Met we went through Central Park again. This was one of the few significant hills in the park and there was a bunch of kids sledding on it. For some reason it was just nice to see the kids having a good time. Sometimes it feels like NYC is just full of a bunch of busy adults.
This was a neat underpass that we walked through in Central Park.
This neat mosaic was on the ceiling of the underpass.
The view as we walked down the main stretch of Central Park.
This is another famous skating rink in Central Park. It was reccommended to Kate and I, but we decided not to try it out since our feet were killing us from all the walking. Maybe next time.
There were lots of handsome cabs in Central Park. They even had their own path.
This is the large statue at the end of Central Park along 5th Avenue.
These next images are just random pictures of the city as we took our final stroll down 5th Avenue.
Wait a minute, this church looks familiar.
One last look down into Rockefeller Center.
This was the restuarant near our hotel that we ate at on our first night in NYC.
So here's our hotel: The Travel Inn. This was a GREAT place to stay if you're driving into New York City. With the free parking, quality room, and the low price, it was an awesome deal.
Here we enter into the Lincoln Tunnel again, leaving NYC behind us.
