Day 15 - 13th June 2012

We started early with a walk through the streets to the NBC studios where they present Good Morning America on the street for some of the show and then a slow amble to Central Park.
We saw the Dakota building where John Lennon and Yoko lived and where John was killed and then had a look round Strawberry Fields... a quiet area of 2.5 acres in Central Park. Unfortunately, Americans are unable to do anything quietly it seems and, not for the first time, they were acting inappropriately. 
Tons of people were jogging, walking and cycling in the park and lots of women (who I assume don't work) jogging with pushchairs or stretching with personal trainers. We then entered the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The building is huge - nowhere as big as the Louvre, but big all the same. There was some great art in there and it was packed.
We then went to the Museum of Modern Art which is tiny when compared to Tate Modern, but we still saw a few interesting items.
Despite exhaustion setting in, we took the lift to the top of the Rockerfeller centre - floor 69!  Took lots of pictures, though it was a bit misty.  It's a loooooong way up!
This evening were went downtown to "the village" and Little Italy. We started with a gay drink in a very cool bar/restaurant and ending up eating too much in an Italian.
