My wife and I made a quick trip to New York City during winter break, and since it was February, we decided to make it as indoors as possible, concentrating on museum visits. We got a good deal on a hotel on 7th Avenue, near Times Square and conveniently located near several subway stops. We packed so much into our few days that we were exhausted; we needed a vacation from our vacation. There’s just so much for history lovers to do and to see!
So, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and the American Folk Art Museum will just have to wait until a future trip, but we did spend a Morning at the Museum – the American Museum of Natural History. Like most museums in NYC, it opens late, 10 AM, but my advice is to get there early. When the doors opened this day, there were probably a hundred people gathered at the door and lines going down the street in both directions. As the morning passed, it got extremely crowded.
