The Met
 
One of the highlights of my trip was getting to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art, we were only able to visit a portion of this magnificent museum but it was well worth the time we spent there.
 
 The out side of The Met was massive... I couldn't even fit the whole building in the frame!
 
Inside was equally as stunning.  The atriums were flooded with light and made all the marble and stone pieces glisten.


We worked our way through Greek and Roman art into the European sculptures.


The amount of detail carved into pieces like these amazes me.


















 
Making a quick stop by Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas. 
 
 
 
My favorite section was through the Modern and Contemporary Art wing. Where I was able to see pieces from...
 

Georgia O'Keeffe (Black Iris, 1926)


Vasily Kandinsky (Improvisation Number 27, 1912)


Pablo Picasso (The Dreamer, 1932)




And a ton more. Next we worked our way up to the roof garden which left us all speechless.
 
 
Ashley and I decided to sip champagne while we took in the view. 
 
 
 


If you are ever in NYC when the roof garden is open (May - October) you MUST stop by. They have light sandwiches and an assortment of beverages that can be enjoyed while relaxing on the cool grass.











Even the boys had to admit the view was well worth the visit (they had complained of culture overload... I had to role my eyes at this!).


This is one of the best ways to see NYC!


 

 
 
I had an amazing time while visiting the city, I hope to be back soon so I can check off all the things I didn't have time to see! I have a few more posts coming up on a couple fun purchases I made while on vacation. I hope you enjoyed getting to experience NYC through my photos!
