Number 1: Take the E train uptown, transfer at Lexington to the uptown 6 train to 86th Street. ZB's "Ring Around the Rosie" game now ends by saying, "We all jump up!", because have you seen the subway terminal floors? ew.
Walk by the Guggenheim, so Reed can see the real-life version
of his Lego set. We went in the lobby as well to get a good view of the
very cool spiral design.
Number 2: Walk down 5th Ave to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (the MET).
Reed was starting to show signs of being bored before even getting our tickets (he keeps having spells of pessimistic complaining and arguing that are really getting old for all of us on this trip). Our first area of the MET to visit was the gift shop. I instructed him to buy 4 or 5 postcards of pieces of art, then he had to find them in the museum.
His treasure hunt started well as he found gorgeously detailed armor in the armory & weaponry room, but soon found that many of the postcards they have are of pieces that aren't currently on display. At least it got him to go to various exhibits asking docents about the art. We had to allow some cheats, like finding something by the same artist if the photographed piece wasn't on display.
