Best of 2017: New York City Trip Rainy Day means Inside Art at MoMA

Not every day on a vacation can be sunshine, rainbows and unicorns, so one day of our travels turned into a inch plus deluge of rain.  So with half of the other tourists in Manhattan we decided to visit the MoMA and when the rain had lighten set out to see St. Patrick’s cathedral and White House East, aka the Trump Tower.  Overall a very nice time in New York City, the worst of the rain was it knocked off all the cherry blossoms off on our visit to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens the next day.

Best of 2017: New York City trip Part II

For three hours you get a complete circle around Manhattan and a side trip to Liberty and Ellis Island on the architectural boat tour and an architect talks almost the entire time pointing out the highlights along the way.  It is same company that does the ones in Chicago on the Chicago River and both are so worth it.  This tour gave some great views of the skyline without something interfering with the view.  More to come in Part III, on a three hour tour, a three hour tour…

May took us to visit daughters in New York City and highlight was taking an architectural tour of Manhattan by boat.   These photos are a trip first to the Whitney Museum and walking down to the pier to meet the boat.
