Jimmy In New York : Day 2

We woke up about 7am. For breakfast we went to Ess-A-Bagel.

I'd never really had them before, and now I'm totally hooked. I had an Olive cream cheese bagel.

First stop was MoMA, the Museum of Modern Art. There was a long line, but we decided we'd get the New York CityPass which gave a discount on the places we planned to visit.

This place was easily the most interesting museum for me with works from Warhol, Dali, Pollock, and an excellent, special exhibition of Tim Burton's work.

Most bizarre was the Marina Abramovic exhibit which featured live "art" of naked people. Makes you wonder what people consider art these days.

The Museum was so tiring but after we finished there, we made our way past Tiffanys (yes, that one), then to FAO Schwarz toy store which you might remember from "Big" where Tom Hanks played the big piano. Right next door is the Apple store.

Most days were rainy, so after there we made our way back to the hotel.
