While everyone was at work, I got up early and started my day off at the MoMA. The main reason for going there instead of the Met was the Rain Room, which I had heard so much about before I even got to the city (I'm not too keen on modern art). Much to my dismay, a line had already started to form for the exhibit before the museum even opened. And by the time I had gotten my ticket, the wait was 8 HOURS. 8 hours to stand in fake rain. Absurd right? So I said "no thanks" to that line and opted for the viewing only queue, which was only a 15 minute wait. A more sensible option in my opinion. And I enjoyed the Rain Room all the same.
^^That's the Rain Room. You can stand under it and not get wet. Except when you run around or walk too fast because I saw two drenched kids. I guess the sensors don't work that fast. Neat concept, but I wouldn't wait more than an hour for this.
^^To find my favorite Van Gogh painting at the MoMA was a lovely surprise!
^^And to find another one of my favorites here made the $25 admission worth it! This is way bigger than I had imagined. Oh, Picasso!
^^Central Park. Envious of those who can come here whenever they'd like. And this place always reminds me of Home Alone 2. Is it Christmas yet?
^^LOVE the Flatiron building.
^^And of course, no NYC trip is complete without Shake Shack. Although, my buns were a little soggy and flat.
^^Took a detour to visit Grand Central. It was unbearably hot in the terminal.
^^We went out for drinks that were served in teacups. Classy ;)
^^UMM. Chicken & Rice from the Halal cart = AMAZING.
^^So amazing that we swiped their special sauce bottle! Oops.
