New York: Day Two

Central Park:

 We started today by visiting Strawberry Fields, a tribute to John Lennon in Central Park, just a few steps away from where he was shot and killed in 1980.  It's rather remarkable that this tribute area has endured for so many years, usually hopping with activity and local musicians singing the great music of John Lennon and the Beatles. 

Thereafter, we had a brief tour of Central Park, and we had got some recreational time in. Footballs were tossed, frisbees were thrown, soccer balls were kicked, and photos were clicked. Now that's how you do the Park! 

The MET:  

It never ceases to amaze me that the work of long dead artists from long dead civilizations continues to endure, inspire, and allure. From the Egyptians to the Greeks to the Romans to the Medieval Period, all the way to the modern age, one cannot see all of the exhibits of the MET in a lifetime. 

Grand Central Station

We had lunch here.  It's iconic. It's very busy. A lot of movies are filmed here. Remember Superman's fight with Zod in Man of Steel (don't worry, no else does either)? But it was filmed here. 

We are now back on the Enterprise to do a bus tour of Manhattan to get better acquainted with the city. 

 

 Nice to be directed across the busy street by New York's finest!

 Grand Central Terminal.  In America, all tracks lead to NYC (don't actually Google that).

 Apparently, something related to a wedding was going on, but there was ONLY the Bride and Groom.  No wedding party or guests. No photographer. Just a happy couple at Grand Central Terminal. Any theories as to what was going here?

 You know you're in a city of 100% highrises when they put ads on the roofs of cars.
