A museum worker on the ramp.
I took no photos of the art we saw, and we saw plenty. I was a little disappointed not to be able to walk the ramp, but I'm glad I got to see it at any rate. Maybe on my next visit!
An incredible volume created by the architect.
After the Guggenheim, my friend L and I walked a few blocks down Fifth Avenue to the Neue Gallery to see Klimt's The Woman in Gold. It was amazing. The gallery also had Munch's original The Scream, a very small pastel, not at all as I imagined it to be. Photos were not allowed inside the gallery.

Then we got back on the subway to Grand Central Station, where we shopped at the NYMTA museum store. I found what I was looking for: a mouse pad with the NYC subway map printed on it. Next, we decided to walk down to Penn Station to get the train for our trip home. Along the way we stopped at a wine bar called Madison and Vine, predictably on Madison Avenue, for a glass (or two in my case). The weather was drizzly, but the city was sparkling and it was all great fun. The wine ensured that I napped a little on the train ride back to Albany.
