This morning's coffee comes to you from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The two things I wanted to are both closed this week. So if I want to have coffee in the 5th floor cafe overlooking Central Park I'll have to come back next week. Likewise for the Frank Lloyd Wright's room. DEM's de breaks girl.

I hadn't really thought about how many universities there are in Manhattan. Whole neighbourhoods all over. That's a lot of libraries

This cafe does look out onto Central Park and those joggers are bac. Plus folk walking their dogs. All on leashes. Not such a good place to be a dog.  The Met is actually in the Park.

Maybe not such a bad life - they even get to go shopping

One of the current exhibitions is Fashion and the Impressionists.
Wandering around surrounded by works by Manet, Monet, Renoir, Baudelaire and others,
with some of the actual dresses that are seen in the paintings - sensory overload. That's Dejeuner sur L'herbe in the background. Two of the panels that survive. amazing

The Met was surrounded by hoarding which detracted from the facade

This was me trying to be arty, photographing Central Park through the sunshading inside the Met

Normal crowds in the foyer at the Met

Buskers spruicking for the lunchtime crowds in the steps, pretzel cart behind doing brisk business
