I was in New York for my 6th visit. Granted, I was here for a 12 hour layover, but I had enough time to enjoy a little bit of the city. Arriving in the Newark International Airport from São Paulo, I took the NJ Transit train to Penna Station and walked to St. Patrick’s Cathedral for Sunday Mass. I then continued north to 80 St. to spend the afternoon in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I’ve always loved going to this gallery for the great works of art by some masters such as Monet, Klimpt, Caravaggio, Picasso, and Van Gogh. After the museum, I took the subway to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, walked back to see the new World Trade Centre, and pay respects at the reflecting pools where the twin towers used to stand. I wrapped up the day at Battery Park to view the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island from afar.
