walking to the met
we set out across Central Park heading for the Met. It was chilly and most of the leaves had fallen off the trees. There were still small swarms of people on bicycles, skate boards, roller blades etc. racing along. On the East Side we went looking for a West Side type place to eat [ie cheap] and found a hole in a wall place that sold pizza from one counter and chicken fajita from the other. While we ate we listened to fathers and sons talking about their morning athletic exploits. At the Neue Gallery we saw a beautiful Zeisel baby feeding cup with spoon, which we would have bought if there were any in stock. At the met we saw a wonderful photo show by Burckhardt of pictures taken around New York of stand pipes, doorways and people walking here and there.
