Starting from our hotel, we walked around midtown ... through the Helmsley Building, to Grand Central Station, on to Times Square ("The taxis go beep beep," said Keegan, enamoured with the yellow cabs), up to Rockefeller Center, where we watched the skating, then up Fifth Avenue (stopping at St. Patrick's Cathedral to hear the Cardinal's mass), past Trump Tower, through FAO Schwartz, to the Plaza Hotel, up and through Central Park, finally arriving at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

We spent a lot of time at the museum -- Keegan really liked the armour, while Kyla liked all the clocks. I liked the pilfered Egyptian artifacts.

We took a cab home.

Had dinner at a West Indian restaurant.
