What do you do when you have 3 nights and 3 days in New York City in Christmas season? Well, here is how I plan to spend one day next week.
There are a few new interesting exhibits at the Met.
Americans in Paris, 1860-1900.
Cezanne to Picasso – Ambroise Vollard, Patron of the Avant-Garde
Glitter and Doom – German Portraits from the 1920s
Have you ever seen the Christmas Tree inside the Met? This is one beautiful tree, decorated with 18th-century Neapolitan angels and cherubs.
And after all this culture? Time to eat – guess what? Lady M cakes. Or, perhaps French pastries at Payard Patisserie (Lexington between 73rd and 74th) – the best hot chocolate and St. Honore in town.
Then, one last thing. A glass of wine at Morrell’s wine bar – [or 2 or 3]. Across from Rockefeller Center, with a view of that other Christmas Tree. You know which one I mean.
