But instead, on a whim, I changed trains and decided to head uptown to see if the Guggenheim was still open, as I had some spare dollars left.
It was pretty busy when I got there, and found to my surprise that 5th avenue was closed to traffic. There was a lot of stuff going on. People having lots of fun.
It was a "Museum Mile" evening where the museums were free admission (though with some fairly hefty but at least speedy queuing). So, getting in free to the beautiful Guggenheim was a great way to end my stay in NYC.
|People were making use of the closed roads. For selfie purposes.|
|That's 5th avenue. Covered with people.|
|New York Police Auxiliary. They both looked like they were enjoying the evening too.|
|Lots of chalking on the road.|
|Fun and games.|
|Music and dancing outside the Guggenheim.|
|And inside the Guggenheim.|
|Seriously, get a life. Just enjoy the art. (It was good. Sadly, the store didn't sell postcards of the ones I really liked. So yeah, I would like to have made my own copy, but I'm not an idiot who disobeys plain and simple rules.)|
