What to do with a teenager visiting the City for the first time since she was three, I ask!

HERE’S WHAT!

Uniqlo and Bloomies, Zara, H & M

A pop up store in SOHO  we went to all of them

We gave a wave to Liberty then ate at Battery Park

Met up with her cousin for  fries at PJ Clark

She walks in Soho with her cousin!

Heading to see “Wicked” on a very stormy night

Traffic traffic everywhere,  did gives us a fright

But rest assured we made it with extra minutes  too

We settled in our seats and both gave out a.. whew!

Made it  home by twelve … like Cindy at the ball

Into bed and ready  for that early morning call

MOMA was exciting with the artist  “It’s all true”

 The temperature was rising,  loved this cool venue

The Guggenheim!   A treasure, thanks to Mr. Wright

Then Lincoln Center and its  Plaza  glowed for us one  night

Along  the shady Central Park, we strolled Fifth Avenue

We saw  Met’s Manus x Machina, so  beautiful to view

A get together with a friend she hadn’t seen in years

Oh those  hugs and kisses and oh those many  tears

But as the famous saying goes, “All good things must  end!”

She left for home, but this I know – she’ll be back again!

Thanks to my beautiful niece (soon to be 17) for showing me a wonderful time in 4 short days!

 

Kay’s Notes:

Important to know:  Go with the flow- my niece knew what she wanted to do. I just hit the highlights in my little poem…  We spent more time at The Met to see on the roof the replica of the house from Psycho – and The Temple of Dendur.   All the museums were packed because it was that notorious “heat dome’ weekend. We saved for a cooler time to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and do the Empire State Bldg among other sites.

I found out when she was leaving that the next time she’s here – she wants to go to several parks – and sketch.   Sounds good to me…. blankets, some food, love it!

Good to know:  Manus x Machina at the Met.  It’s part of the Costume Institute at the Museum and the clothing is beautiful – well worth going to  before it closes  September 5.

I knew when I started my blog I wanted to reach out to seniors like myself. I wanted to share my stories and even be a bit of a tour guide on what I’ve learned and the fun I’ve had at famous and not so famous New York places.
