The Met Roof Garden: Huma Bhabha’s We Come In Peace

Tuesday, April 17–Sunday, October 28
10:00 am–6:00 pm

Metropolitan Museum Of Art (1000 Fifth Avenue at 82nd Street)
Pay-what-you-wish, suggested $25, free/ages 12 & under

Walk around two haunting monumental sculptures of intriguing figures by Pakistani-born artist Huma Bhabha that daughter thinks are zombies and my son thinks are aliens. Actually a commentary on colonialism, war and displacement. The view of Central Park is stunning. Snacks allowed (and available for purchase).

Eats & Treats: Inside the museum, the American Wing Cafe has soups, salads, sandwiches and a gorgeous view of Central Park. 'the cafeteria' in the basement is less scenic but has more selection - pasta, sushi, hot entrees, a frozen yogurt sundae bar and kids' meals that come in cardboard taxis. The Roof Garden has some snacks (and you can bring your own and nosh with a view). Or head to Shake Shack (86th between Lexington & Third) or the chill Pizza Beach (81st & Third). Pick up one of the city's best black-and-white cookies at William Greenberg (1100 Madison between 82nd & 83rd).
