Field Trip to the MET October 14, 2022


Downtown Manhattan is full of things to do, but last month our class ventured Uptown to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art. From NYEA, we took the 4 train from Fulton St Station.  The express train got us to the MET in about 30 minutes.  

Upon arriving, we took in the stunning architecture.  The museum sits high up on a flight of stairs and is decorated with large columns.  New York state residents and students of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut pay as they wish, so with a NYEA ID card a trip to the MET can be very affordable. 

The MET houses a variety of artwork, from paintings to sculptures.  Every wing focuses on a different region of the world so we pieces from Greece, China, and the Americas all in an afternoon.  We even saw some koi fish in a little pond! The MET is also next to Central Park so we finished our trip enjoying the views from the museum’s rooftop.
