Re: NYC Art Museums

If you go anywhere go to the Frick! It is relatively small, very
maneuverable and you will be blown away with all the wonderful paintings they
have. I was overwhelmed my first time through it. It is still an amazing
museum to me. They don't allow children under 12 or 16...but that didn't
apply, since our children were all older. It is a very intimate can walk right up to the paintings and look at them, eye ball to
canvas...If you like medieval go to the Cloisters. It's tucked away in the
middle of a neighborhood, across the park. We rode the subway, and then
caught the bus through the park. It's fabulous...they have the Merode
altarpiece there as well as the Unicorn tapestries...among other things.....
and Manuscripts on the second floor...although we didn't get to see them that
visit.....I felt like I had stepped right out of NYC and into a medieval
monastery....It was wonderful too! The Met is great...just so big...we have
been to NYC about six times and I still haven't seen all of it.....MOMA is
nice if you like modern....Monet's waterlilies are huge! I was disappointed
becuase they were setting up a Jackson Pollock exhibit there and we didn't
get to see any of his work except drawings...Hope you have a wonderful time
