Michelangelo & Lady Bird Make For A Masterful Day …

Another amazing fall day in NYC.

Up early for a walk in the Central Park and then a 10am, $8 first showing of, Lady Bird.

This film is a must.

Lady Bird is so real, honest and down to earth.

Writer and director, Greta Gerwig, has done the impossible…made magic out of the mundane.

You actually feel as if you grow up and graduate with Lady Bird, brilliantly played by Saoirse Ronan and the amazing cast comprised of demanding mother, Laurie Metcalf, sympathetic father with his own issues,Tracy Letts, best friend, Beanie Feldstein and too good to be true boyfriend, Lucas Hedges.

After the endearing movie, we stopped for coffee at the pretentious coffee shop, Joe’s and couldn’t help but overhear Goyard carrying new mom’s discuss the overwhelming challenge of attaining a multi-tasking nanny.

We then walked up Columbus Avenue through a great farmer’s market and across Central Park to the MET for a members only exhibit of, Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman & Designer.

This is the largest exhibition of Michelangelo works in the Metropolitan Museum’s history.

The exhibition contain 150 drawings, among them three marble sculptures.

More than 60 collections from the United States and Europe are represented in the show.

Sistine Chapel

It was unbelievably warm and crowded. I admired the sculpture, appreciated the drawings and loved the recreation of the Sistine Chapel.

We departed culturally satiated, traversed the Park and had lunch with our canine girlies outside at the Tavern On The Green.

Headed home to watch the NY Giants un-masterpiece, but thankfully I did not emotionally implode since losing is normal this season…Giants no more.

Michelangelo:Divine Draftsman & Designer Metropolitan Museum of Art 1000 5th Avenue New York City. Runs from November 13th-February 12th, 2018.
