New York City


Rooftop at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

My much anticipated birthday trip started at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  I love museums and this special week was chock full of museum excursions.  Having a drink and watching the city light up from the rooftop at the MET was a perfect way to polish off the first day of traveling, checking in to our VRBO and looking at art.




Metropolitan Museum of Art - John Singer Sargent

This portrait, Dr. Pozzi at Home, by John Singer Sargent is one of my favorites.  It was part of a huge exhibit,  Sargent: Portraits of Artists and Friend, made up of mostly non commissioned work.  The exhibit was closing a week later so the gallery was packed visitors.

Madison Square Eats is a foodies dream.  Over 25 vendors were set up to temp the tastebuds with delicious offerings.

Running the Bronx 10-mile race as part of my race in every state lifetime goal was another list item I wanted to check off for this birthday weekend.




Mission Accomplished:

  • Finish time: 1:48:20
  • Pace per mile: 10:50
  • Another state: New York

After the 10 mile run brunch with bottomless mimosas at Florian was exactly what we needed to recuperate.

Morbid Anatomy Museum in Brooklyn is a unique museum that exhibits historical artifacts, natural history specimens and other items falling somewhere between the realms of high and low culture.  It’s right up my ally!

Every year on my birthday I go out for sushi.  I don’t know why, it started sometime during graduate school- I just always go out for sushi.  It doesn’t have to be a super fancy place, sometimes it’s just a tiny little spot and sometimes it’s a nice restaurant.  This year was Haru Sushi in Gramercy Park.
