Hi Vince, Gerry and Ziners,
I'll give a second to the Frick Collection.
Also, the Big Onion walking tours. We've taken a different tour with them every visit - $15. No reservations are needed - just show up at the designated spot.
I finally made it to The Cloisters this year. It was built in the thirties using architectural elements from old French monasteries and houses the Metropolitan's medieval collection - includes the Unicorn Tapestries. Also, medieval plantings in the gardens overlooking the Hudson. I took the bus - a long trip. The train is faster, but you miss the free tour of the city.
Lupa, in Greenwich Village, has become our favorite restaurant. It's one of the restaurants owned by "Molto Mario" and Lydia's son, but it's moderately priced, casual and the food is great. http://www.luparestaurant.com
Best to all, Charlotte in MA
