The Metropolitan Museum of Art (In Pictures) | PART II

Yesterday, I shared a handful of photographs I took during two separate visits to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City [check them out HERE]. Our first visit ran over four hours and we were barely done with the first floor(!). Came back a few days later for a few more hours and finished up the mezzanine and 2nd floor. All in all, this museum totally lives up to its reputation and is a must-see for anyone visiting New York City (or living in it).

Here are a few more photographs that illustrate just a sample of what this great museum has to offer. Enjoy...
