What to do in museums of

what NY socialites do in 10021
A New York Socialite is brought up to be cultured, educated and to love and be passionate about the arts. There is no greater appreciation than support and patronage of museums. While it does not always require a wing be named after a socialite family, love of art can be expressed in a multitude of ways. This blog is an expression for the love of art in New York Museums. You can even call it a passion.

I’ve always heard that to visit the Met is a donation based admission. I looked on their website and it tells you the admission cost, however it does not say that it is a suggested donation. I was wondering if you go do you have to pay the full price or can you give what ever you want?? Its just that the cost to go to the city is so much that I want to try and save as much as possible.
i haven’t been there in a while but i remember that when i went you could even give 10 cents and they would let you in. don’t give 10cents try to give a few dollars and you’ll be able to go in.
Yes, but no flash or video cameras allowed.
Not a subway. Interested in a passenger train like Amtrak.
The closest passenger train station to the Met is Grand Central, which is on 42nd st and on Park and Lexington Avenues.
However, Amtrak stops at Penn Station.
The Met is on 5th Avenue right near 82nd st. I suggest that if you take a train that stops at Grand Central, when you exit Grand Central, take a 4,5 or 6 train up to 86th st, or take the 6 to 77th st. If you get off at 77th st, walk West to 5th Avenue, and then walk North along 5th Avenue until you get to the Met.
If you get off at 86th st, walk West towards 5th Avenue, and then walk South on 5th Avenue until you get to the Met.
If you do take Amtrak to Penn Station, do this:
Take either the 1,2,3,A,C or E up to 4nd St. Times Square.
Transfer to either the 7 or the Grand Central Shuttle.
Get off the 7 or the Shuttle at Grand Central. From there, transfer to an uptown bound 4,5 or 6 train, and then follow the directions as mentioned above.
Edit* To the answerer above me, MOMA stands for the Museum Of Modern Art, not for the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met for short)
I just want to buy a gift for my friend there, and i don’t intend to see the museum. is there a separate entrance or a pass to get there or something?
I’m talking about the metropolitan museum of art in New York City
I was at the Metropolitan Museum of Art a while back and in their gift shop they had a book (I think it was in the 18th Century section) about love affairs depicted throughout history. I can’t remember the title. If memory serves, I believe it had a royal purple cover with a pen and ink drawing of a couple. Has anyone heard of it?
There have actually been a few books — maybe more — on great romances depicted in art.
What I suggest is that you contact the Met store and ask for help. See the site below.
Banksy has done his pet shop animatronics exhibition before in New York.

http://www.metmuseum.org/ With love from Suzannah from The Met Museum. I am over exhausted as if I am “post traumatic stressing” yet I love my youtube pals from across the USA and abroad so this is for you with love.
I even mention Mickey Rourke because I have so many people that admire his raw talent and I am wearing that funny thrift shop hat of mine because I am having a bad hair day.
