We purchased subway tickets and rode the subway to Grand Central Station where we had a cup of coffee and a pastry. We took another subway train to the Guggenheim Museum and then we walked in Central Park to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We went on the Museum Highlights Tour and then proceeded to browse through the museum all afternoon. Admission to The Cloisters is included in the admission to the Metropolitan Museum of Art so we jumped on a city bus and rode 100 blocks to Fort Tryon Park at the upper end of Manhattan. We walked around The Cloisters and Fort Tryon Park before taking a subway back to Chelsea. We walked to our room, cleaned up and then walked a few blocks to Maroon's where we had dinner and drinks. Maroon's was recommended and the food was excellent. After dinner we walked back to our room at Chelsea Lodge.
