Okay, so that night, Nay and I got out into the city and went to see the Eiffel Tower , er Empire State Building. I do not know why I called that building that, but every time I opened my mouth to say it, Eiffel Tower came out. It got to be so common that Nay Nay started acting as if that were the actual name. Oy.
Part of the CityPASS will let you go to the Empire State Building twice in one day, daylight and dark. We had so much we wanted to do that we opted for the night views only. And it was stunning. A bright sprinkling of color awash for miles around us.
The other thing about the pass is that it upgrades you to the express elevators. No trudging up nineteen bazillion steps! Zoom! Right to the top to see this:
We stayed up laughing until two thirty in the morning. Draggin ourselves up at nine to go to the Metropolotain Museum.
It was soooo very crowded. Nay decided to photo bomb as many family protratis as she could. I knew when she grabbed my arm, to put my face next to hers and smile.
Despite everybody taking pictures of the work right in front of signs asking them not to, I was a good girl and did not whip out my camera. But ohhhhh! We saw so many lovely paintings and sculptures. We had lunch right next to Rodin's The Burghers of Calais. There were just so many mavelous delights at every turn, I had trouble focusing on the one in front of me. It was definite ADHD for me that day. I believe all either of us did was grunt, "Look! LOOK!" to the other for hours.
And at some point, we stepped inside Grand Central Station, but I can't remember if we were coming or going, so I'll just insert it here. Why not.
We spent the evening on the balcony with nibblies and drinks and rested up for the marathon the next day!
