Escaping the cold - the Met and the Rangers

sunny -4 °C

Today we absorbed to very different pieces of American culture, first up the Met (full name Metropolitan Museum of Art).

It is unbelievable how big this place is, it doesn't even look that big from the outside, but once inside there a wings upon wings.

We wandered through for about 3 hrs and would have been lucky to see half of the place. For me the highlights were the modern art wings, with pieces by Andy Warhol, van Gough and Monet to name few. Also very cool was the weapon and armory section, and the guitar heroes special exhibit, some awesome locally made guitars on display.

Having absorbed enough of the fine arts, we dumbed down our cultural offering for the evening by attending the hockey at Madison SquaRe Garden. We managed to score some pretty cool tickets only a couple of bays back from the rink earlier in the morning, at what turned out to be a discount price. the vibe was totally different to the knicks last night, but was equally as entertaining. Unfortunately the Rangers lost, however fortunately I had not bought any Rangers merchandise before the game.
