New York-Day 5- June 20th

17 Aug

Went to McSorley’s Old Ale House on Thursday. The Oldest bar in New Yorks and a real “spit and sawdust” pub.

Famous for putting down 2 glasses beer for every one you order. Literally had sawdust on the floor.

Liked this beaver plaque in a subway station.

Did the Metropolitan Art Museum  in the afternoon. Really didn’t have time to do it justice. If I returned I would take a full day and plan the route I took. As it was we just raced around. Hadn’t seen much work by the old masters before and managed to see pictures by most of the famous names but unfortunately little of their best works. Unfortunately failed to see anything by Salvador Dali.Image

View from the museum roof top cafe. Saw my only Chimney Swift from here.

Had another look round Central Park early evening.
