A Sunday Afternoon Walk Through The Met Museum in NYC

The first and last thing you see,
the flowers at the front of the Museum, in the Grand Hall.

A Sunday Stroll
Through The
Museum of Art
New York City

There is a peaceful and calming painting by the artist Georges Seurat, titled: "Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte." In the painting, Seurat depicts ordinary people relaxing in a suburban park, on a typical Sunday in Paris (painted around 1884). 

Today, many people find it just as relaxing to stroll through Les Grande Salles of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on a typical Sunday afternoon in New York City. 

Here are some photos from a very short stroll I took through the Met on a recent Sunday. I only went through a small portion of the ground floor, taking snaps of whatever objects caught my eye.

I am sharing my afternoon here, with you. Enjoy!

The underside of the grand staircase facing the entrance,
each stair-step was carved out of a rough stone,

the building opened to the public in 1880.
I thought this was interesting!
