New York Day Four

Our fourth and final day wasn’t any less ambitious than the three previous days. We started out early by packing up our belongings and leaving them with the bellboy at our hotel. We then headed to the Empire State Building where we were treated to a beautiful view of the city. From there we raced over to the Museum of Modern Art where we were privileged to view some amazing works. And after grabbing a quick bite to eat at McDonald’s in Times Square we picked up our luggage, raced through the subway and caught our buss to the airport.

Erin and I from the top of the world… ok, it was just the Empire State Building, but that’s close enough.

We saw some amazing art at the MOMA (Museum of Modern Art). Isn’t this wheel by Martin Puryear amazingly huge?


I was also amazed at the shear size of the Water Lillies by Monet

One of Andy Worhol’s most famous works

A little (huge) Jackson Pollock

Starry Night by van Gogh

Matisse’s study for Dance. This was also a giant painting. I’m always amazed by the size of the paintings I’ve grown to love through my art classes.

We bid farewell to our New York home, Hotel Mela, and…

…to Grand Central Station as we boarded our buss for LaGuardia Airport.
