Our day started early and before the sunrise we had met up with others for a coach trip to New York - five hours later after one stop and a very slow drive for the last few miles in the city we were at our hotel.
We took the subway to the Metroplitan Museum of Art as it was too hot to walk.
It is difficult to do justice to the scale of the galleries at 'The Met' and the opulence of the exhibits. I have lots more photos to share!!
Once we had absorbed as much as we could in the museum, we set out for a walk across Central Park, with s few rest stops along the way to admire the view.
We had booked a 'Harbour Lights' cruise for this evening so had to present ourselves at Pier 83 in good time.
The views at sunset on the river and after dark when the buildings were illuminated were quite spectacular.
