Metropolitan Museum of Art, N.Y.

www.metmuseum.org I lived a short bus ride, across Central Park, from this home away from home. It was always welcoming, interesting and available and I miss its proximity even now.

The Frick Collection

Just down Fifth Avenue I could refresh my senses and relax in the stillness of a perfect little museum, The Frick Mansion housing a small collection of the very best Old Masters.
