Amazing New York Weekend !

We left Toronto last Friday for a fabulous weekend in NYC.
We flew Porter airlines for the first time and it was fantastic- flight was on time !

The view of Toronto as we
boarded the ferry to the airport.

The Phillips Club on the upper west side was our home base for the 2 days
while we explored the city. The Phillips Club is located next to the Lincoln Centre and the
New York Ballet which made it ideal !

The Lincoln Centre for the Arts

The Phillips Club Lobby
 On our list of sites to visit was the Guggenheim for a wonderful show of Francesca Woodman's
 The beautiful Guggenheim Museum.
Frank Lloyd Wright's spiral masterpiece!

       Francesca Woodman self portrait. A beautiful, but disturbed young woman who set the standard in photographic excellence.

Lunch on Sunday was on the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Check out this view !

 What would it be to visit NYC and not go to Central Park? Opened in 1847 and contains
843 Acres of open space to wander about and explore.
And what would NYC be without doing some necessary shopping?

The trip ended far too soon - maybe we will be there next April for the rare book fair.
