Easter in NYC: Part 1 – Manhattan

Over Easter weekend, L and I met up in New York City for a long weekend. Of course the time was too short, but we did manage to fit a lot into two and a half days.  Here are some of the highlights from day one, in Manhattan.

  1. Metropolitan Museum of Art– We had already seen the Egyptian exhibits during a previous visit, so this time we spent most of our time in the Islamic art area and saw The Steins Collect exhibit.

  2. Central Park – Of course. It was a gorgeous day to walk around, sit in the sun, and people watch.

  3. Chelsea Market and High Line Park– We picked up some coffee and macaroons and headed over to High Line Park, one of our favorite spots.  The High Line is a public park built on an historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side.

  4. Eataly – Talk about excess. This place was absolutely over the top. It’s essentially a massive warehouse sized store in the Flatiron District with rows and rows of every imaginable Italian product: wine, cheese, chocolate, olives, pasta, and produce. There are several restaurants inside, each with their own menu. The food was good, but I’m pretty sure I had the most amazing espresso of my life.

  1. High Line Park intrigues me. I haven’t been but will surely check it out later this year when I’m in NYC. I’m always interested in seeing how relics from the industrial age in cities are repurposed. When you have a moment, you might enjoy some of the topics on my blog http://americantourismbook.com.
