Last summer I wrote another post on the American Museum of Natural History .
I returned to the museum , which takes up 3 blocks of Central Park West from 78th to 81st streets in New York City, to see some exhibits that I didn’t see the first time.
This being New York , where everything is big and spread out , there was a lot of things that I didn’t see.
Monkeys, history of peoples, dinosaurs and Theodore Roosevelt Hall were some of the things that I didn’t get to see the first time .
As I’m not a fan of the satellites and planets, the world famous Hayden Planetarium wasn’t on my list of things to see.
I didn’t see the planetarium the first time, so why would I want to see it now and get really bored?
No, thanks, I’ll pass on that solar system thingy.
The dinosaurs with the names that I can’t pronounce is more my speed.
There was one exhibit with a raptor or some other tyrannosaurus that was so big and long that its head stuck out the door.
I don’t think that I need to tell you that selfies were in full effect and I wasn’t the only one taking a selfie with what ever this animal was.
This section was full of little schoolchildren, who were confused as to whether they were in a playground or a museum.
I knew it was time to move onto another area of the museum so I went to the Theodore Roosevelt Hall, which is on the first floor and named after the former president who was one of the first American politicians who was interested in conservation .
This is one of the museum’s that all those travel guidebooks say that you must see while you’re in New York City .
They aren’t wrong.
Today was very nice here in New York and I decided to go on a 30 Plus Teams Tour of the New York City subways .
I decided to go today because the next couple of days here in the city are supposed to be very bad with hail and a tornado watch, something that we usually don’t get here in New York .
I know that I have to take care of some business on 66th Street and Braodway, which is where you get off for Lincoln Center, Central Park and all those shows filmed live at the ABC Television Studios.
I’m walking up to 79th Street for another visit to the American Museum of Natural History , but after that I have no idea where my tour on the number 1 train is going to take me.
The train is a local train, making every stop from South Ferry station all the way up to the Riverdale section of The Bronx at 242nd Street .
Eventually , I got off at 157th Street and Broadway, but there’s so many things to see at every station, so that’s why my post on the number 1 train will have two parts.
Every station even has art and this being New York City , even the sidewalks have some kind of weird looking art.
I can tell you, though, if you want to visit Columbia University at 116th st or Grant’s Tomb at 121st, this is the train that you’ll take.
Enjoy your ride.
Yesterday , I put up pictures of my visit to the American Museum of Natural History .
I think you can get an idea of why I liked my visit so much.
If you happen to be visiting New York City , make this museum a must stop on your visit .
I think you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.
The pictures should inspire you .
