Welcome back friends! Hope your Thursday is going well. Another week has nearly come and gone, another month too. Before we know it, it will be summer then winter again. Anyhow, I’m back to close out this week with another quick post. I promise these short accounts are coming to an end. Today is a recap of my quick visit to the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, often referred to as the MoMA.
I only had a few minutes, less than an hour, to visit. So much like my first visit to the MoMA in 2013, I just popped in to see a few of my favorite paintings. This visit wasn’t quite as busy as my first, so I was able to sit and really enjoy them. I concentrated on Monet’s Water Lilies, Van Gogh’s Starry Night (we really are lucky to have that painting here in the U.S.!), Jackson Pollock’s One: Number 31, Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (you may recognize this one from the movie Titanic), and works from Andy Warhol. Even though these were the same paintings I fixated on during my first visit to the MoMA, they didn’t disappoint the second go round.
Being able to sit down, and really enjoy the paintings was quite the treat! Perhaps on my next visit, I will spend more time exploring and learning about other works as well. Like I said this was a very quick visit, so I don’t have much to share other than that it’s a beautiful place, even the building design itself, and checking out the incredible art is a must.
I hope you enjoyed my quick visit to the MoMA. Wishing you a wonderful weekend, and a Happy Easter!
Hey y'all! I hope Monday was good to you. If not, I wish you a better week ahead. Today, I'm back for Tip Tuesday, only today is more of a "what I would do" bit of info. I thought it would be fun to share some itinerary options for New York City with y'all. So I'm sharing what I would do or recommend to a first timer with 48 hours to explore in New York.
This simple itinerary is placed in location order to give you more bang for your time, and keep you from being overwhelmed. With this itinerary, you'll hit all the high points that are must for first time visitors. Who am I kidding!? I still love to visit these spots. So let's get to it! Here is a sample itinerary for what you can do with 48 hours in New York City.
Arrive early at Newark International Airport
Commute to Manhattan via the Lincoln Tunnel
Check into hotel located in Times Square
Rockefeller Center + Top of the Rock
Statue of Liberty
Empire State Building
Evening Broadway Show
Visit the Good Morning America Set/Outdoor Set
Head to the Airport
What do you think? Does that hit all of your must sees for New York City? You'll want to watch your time to fit it all in, and take advantage of the Subway to get here and there quickly. With that, this itinerary is completely doable!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I'll see you back later this week!
