This is the city that I've longed to explore and while we were there, there simply wasn't enough time to maneuver through this entire city that is just so large and full of life. On our second day, we traveled by subway for a light picnic over at Central Park, followed by a very brief cab ride over to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It almost felt like we lived an episode of Gossip Girl, except we missed having lunch on the steps with Blair Waldorf. Although construction was a slight interference, it didn't hinder us from appreciating the beautiful and grand steps leading up to entrance way of the museum. While all the locals and tourists were crowding around the front, we found ourselves at a picture-perfect empty corner which others seem to have overlooked.
