NYC: Central Park

After the Guggenheim, I walked through Central Park for hours. I started at 89th St and made my way down to the exit at 59th. Central Park is so big and it’s so beautiful even in winter when most of the trees have no leaves.

NYC: The Guggenheim

The Guggenheim was in the midst of an installation when I visited and only the first 2 floors were open to visitors. So instead of using my CityPASS for that, I decided to buy a ticket (price reduced to $6 due to the installation) and save the pass for the Top of the Rock instead. I think the building is pretty cool and I wish I’d been able to walk all the way up on the ramp and back down again!
