A day in NYC

Having been to NYC before we've done most of the basic tourist stuff. Russ asked a Chat
AI what we should do. It gave the Frick Museum as one of the answers. So we headed there first.

Heading to the Brooklyn Bridge.

Who says NYC isn't kid friendly? This condo complex
has a built in kids playground.

The Frick Collection, which has Vermeers (who I adore) was closed. The Frick Madison, while a much smaller collection, was comprehensive, lovely, and Vermeer free.

From there we walked across Central Park and hopped on a train north to go to The Cloisters.

Garden at the Cloisters

The Met Cloisters, while out of the way, was amazing! Built in the 1930s it was made to house a collection of medieval architectural items, like stained glass windows, arched doorways, church altars and art.

This famous tapestry is at the Cloisters.

From there we trained back to the city to check out Chelsea Market.

If you look close you can see the Progress Pride flag... 
with McDonalds logo on them.

We had some drinks (and by that I mean I had a chocolate shake) then headed out to an escape room. Hannah joined us, having ended her day of work.

We escaped!

Lastly, Hannah had arranged a dinner with her company's CFO, Nicolas, and we were fortunately invited to tag along. We had a private dining experience at Seamore's Chelsea (turns out Nicolas was a close friend of the manager). It was an outstanding meal! And a great way to end the day.
