The Met, Central Park and Times Square

Our first day in New York City was cold and rainy, but it didn't stop us!  We had originally planned to go to Liberty Island our first day but opted to change our itinerary to an indoor venues: the Metropolitan Museum of Art and The City of New York Museum!  We spent hours wandering these beautiful museums and still only saw a handful of the available exhibitions.  We saw Assyrian reliefs, Greek and Roman art, Asian art, New York Activism, Photography and the Musical Instrument Collections.  I could see how one could spend days wandering!

Next we headed to Central Park for sunset views at Jackie Onassis Reservoir and to visit Strawberry Fields where there is a mosaic in tribute to John Lennon:
