Glamorous New York - East Side

A very overdue visit to the Metropolitan Museum on East 84th Street to see their stunning Chinese fashion show.

A multi-media extravaganza to dazzle both the eye and the ear. Totally worth going to - probably more than once. Lots to think about.

Lots of takes on the idea of 'chinoiserie'.

Lots of visitors from all over the world

enchanted by the movies projected on the walls. The Last Emperor never looked so good.

A brief look in at the serenity of the New York Society Library where I long to become a member to relish its old world charm. It was opened in 1754. Gosh! But how often would I get to E 79th Street?

The glories of Grand Central Station - why are there so few people about?

We have a drink at The Campbell Apartment East 42nd St.

and eat very green pea soup at JoJo. (East 64th Street).
Need to get to the East Side more often.

My main blog, Random Images is now here.


  1. Beautiful pictures!!!

  2. I love getting to look round museums and galleries in other countries. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I love the look of that bright green soup Elizabeth - I assume it is pea but once again I can't read your text, it is too faint.

    1. Have changed the text to block, Pat! Sorry!

  4. Love the photos. What a wonderful visit. The Last Emperor is one of my favorite movies.

  5. Lovely, outstanding photos. You have such a good eye.
    The green pea soup one is very mysterious.

    cheers, parsnip
