NYC Trip: The Met and Macaron Cafe

8 Apr

On Saturday, I spent the day in New York City on a university field trip.

The trip was for a course on the Harlem Renaissance. The group visited an exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (African Art, New York, and the Avant-Garde) and went on a walking tour of Harlem to see historical landmarks from the Harlem Renaissance.

As much as I enjoyed learning about the Harlem Renaissance, my main prerogatives for the trip were visiting the Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity exhibit at the Met and, of course, getting a box of macarons. The “Impressionism” exhibit was beautiful and impressive–I only wish I had more time to look at all of the paintings and artifacts more closely.

Argosy’s basement: wall-to-wall books

For the macarons, I originally had planned to go to Ladurée on 864 Madison Avenue, but my friends wanted to check out Argosy bookstore on 59th and the bus was arranged to pick up the group on 54th. My disappointment wore off quickly when we passed Macaron Café on 59th heading towards the bookstore. Needless to say, I quickly browsed through Argosy and went straight to Macaron Café for a cup of tea and eight bites of heaven.
