Little Things: MET


Mom and I headed back into the city during Thanksgiving weekend for a show and some culture at the MET Museum.

One of the exhibitions they currently have is all about Jerusalem from 1000 - 1400. We were both excited to check it out.

But first...I had to stop by the Egypt exhibit because it must be one of my favorite parts of the MET. I fell in love with it all over again being there as the sun went down...gorgeous!

The exhibit was really interesting. Tons of amazing artifacts. So much gold! They had an impressive collection of old books: bibles, qu'rans, and more. It was really interesting to see how Christian the city was in those years!

It was a fun afternoon of culture for sure.

Brooklyn Bridge

Like to plant my feet on the Brooklyn Bridge...
The good old Brooklyn Bridge...

{The Brooklyn Bridge -- Frank Sinatra}

On Thanksgiving, mom and I went into Lower Manhattan to explore. I realized I had never been to the Brooklyn Bridge so we made our way to the span.

It's such an impressive bridge! I just loved all the lines the cables created - a photographer's paradise.

I loved the old up against the new of the shiny buildings in the city. Such a great contrast.

Got to love NYC!

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 48

The Good:
Saturday night mom and I went back into the city to see Something Rotten on Broadway. It's a hilarious little show about two brothers trying to get ahead of Shakespeare and his hits. It riffed on so many Broadway shows and the best part was getting to see Adam Pascal (ala Roger in Rent) up close and personal (and sans shirt a great deal of the time)! A funny night out!

The Random:
When mom and I went across the Brooklyn Bridge they had these funny signs warning people about putting pad locks on the bridge. Some NY humor...

The Fun: 
While walking towards Battery Park on Thanksgiving we came upon Trinity Church and I realized we had stumbled upon Alexander Hamilton's burial ground (and Eliza's). I was a bit excited to have accidentally come across it on our adventure (I thought he was buried uptown!). But there he was! We also went into the church, a gorgeous space!
