For us it was mostly about the museums. We took the very handy ferry that leaves from our marina for the ferry terminal at the World Finance Center about a 15 minute ride. On Friday we headed for the Frick Museum on 5th at 70th. He built this house in 1914 to display his art collection so while it is an art gallery now it remains furnished as it was lived in. Wonderful collection of mainly European masters. After a quick lunch around the corner on Madison we spent the bulk of the afternoon enjoying the Frick.
We then headed downtown to meet up with the rest of the gang for Peter and Wilma’s last dinner with us near Battery Park.
Saturday we saw Peter and Wilma off to their plane and then headed out for lunch and the Met. Our chosen restaurant in Lower Manhattan was closed for an event so it took some time to find a place. Unfortunately we didn’t arrive at the Met until mid afternoon and if one knows the Met, it’s ENORMOUS. So we chose a few exhibits and noted others that we will do next time.
We met up with Chris and Linda in Lower Manhattan and did a quick grocery shop before catching the ferry back to our marina.
