Sunday - New York Historical Society
My good friend and former coworker SH and I have been trying to get together for week, but our jobs were getting in the way. Finally we found some time to get together, doing something fun in the city and still stay on the budget. She originally wanted to get brunch, but that is a no can do for me with Lent. So we settled on visiting a museum - the New York Historical Society. With my student ID (still coming in handy 5 years later!) I got the student admission for $10. We visited all three stories of galleries and saw a 30 minute film on the history of New York. The best part was it was just a short 15 minute walk through the park from my apartment. What a great way to spend a Sunday, seeing a good friend and learning something new about my city!
