Unlike most New Yorkers, Alex and I opted for a "staycation" for Independence Day. Don't get me wrong, if we had access to a house in the Hamptons (or anywhere at the beach really) we would probably be there, but we both actually like staying in the city on a holiday weekend when most people are gone. The streets are (relatively) empty, as are a lot of the typical tourist attractions. Our day thus far? Grabbing the perfect Fourth of July lunch at Luke's Lobster on the UES - a seafood schooner combo with a lobster roll. I'm pretty sure that this is like the fourth time I have mentioned Luke's Lobster on this blog, but I just can't help it. It really is amazing. And since I finally thought to bring my camera with me I decided to take some pictures to share with my friends and family! Eat your heart out guys. We followed up our lunch at Luke's with a trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (at Alex's request). While I have been several times, Alex has somehow neglected all of the museums in NYC, as well as the vast majority of other tourist attractions. He and I had visited the Met briefly once before and he has been talking about going back to view more of the collection for a few months now. Who knew my husband had such a thing for museums and Greek sculpture and/or pottery?
