Illustration Workation in New York - Part 4 - Extras

Alright! So after the library we also popped by the Grand Central Station. It was very cool, but very very busy.

And then we dashed to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We only had about two hours to be there before closing so we didn't get to see everything, and the things we saw we didn't get a chance to appreciate as much as should. But here are some pictures anyhow:

Ceiling in the Greece section
That's just me

The Boxer
Some wonderful Greek ceramics
These were funny to upload to Facebook when it kept asking me to tag the faces
Egyptian wall

And a sucky cell picture of the fantastic armor and weaponry section
We saw phenomenal variety of famous paintings too, but there was no time to take pictures of all of them, and they're better documented somewhere else online anyhow.

On the last day (Saturday June 29th) we went to the Guggenheim but there were no photos allowed indoors so that's my only picture of it below:

I've got to say though - that the main portion of the James Turrell light show was wonderful - very meditative. Here's a lovely photo I've found on the internet of it...well part of it. The colour of the light changed slowly but constantly, and there were several light illusions located around the spiraling halls of the Guggenheim.

That's right - NO STOPPING! Go go go!

The end!
