Metropolitan Museum of Art

Another beautiful day in the city. We arrived at the Met before most of the crowds and had the place almost to ourselves for the first few hours.
We made our way through most of the galleries and were amazed at how the descriptions of each artifact, painting, or sculpture was done in a very interesting way that made each piece come to life.

From the African art...

to the rooftop garden sculpture...
to a marble sarcophagus,
to the Starbucks logo...

Equestrian armor...and much, much more. Too much to mention. We will be sure to go back soon.
We ended our day with a stop at the Grand Central terminal.
