Saturday morning after breakfast we took a taxi to the Metropolitan Museum
The Museum is one of my favorite places in New York
Vermeer's painting The Milkmaid is on loan from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam in commemoration of the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson's arrival in this area. I am a huge fan of Vermeer. Robert had seen this painting in Amsterdam several years ago and brought me a copy that hangs in our kitchen. It is breathtaking in real life
We also briefly explored a little more of the museum before heading back to the hotel to meet Robert's brother
I loved this fall display in the lobby
The Temple of Dandur fascinates me
While Robert's brother went to the Marathon Expo, Robert relaxed in our room and I went shopping
The flats I had brought were hurting my feet so I sought some more comfortable shoes - critical in New York with all the walking I do there!
] My sister-in-law Patti arrived late in the afternoon. On our way to dinner we passed the Empire State Building which was lit for Halloween
It was pouring down rain when we arrived and left, so this was the only picture I got of our restaurant (Giorgio's of Gramercy) inside or out
We seemed to be the only people in NY not wearing costumes Halloween night, but I wasn't able to get a decent picture depicting that!

I unintentionally contaminated all of the pictures on my blog when I changed my privacy settings on Flickr. I am working backwards to correct them all, but it is quite a tedious procedure! If you encounter a post with error messages from Flickr where the pictures should be, then I haven't gotten to that post yet. Please let me know and I will update it immediately. Thanks for your patience!
