It is with a little trepidation that I share one of my favorite tricks for avoiding crowds at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Because if everyone finds out, well then, maybe it might get a little more crowded. But after struggling to find pictures and descriptions online to show you this favorite meeting spot, I quickly learned why this entrance has remained one of the best kept New York art lover’s secrets.
So, next time you are in New York City, you can take advantage of this trick and think of me.
Now, just in case you have never experienced the crowds at the Met, I thought I should share with you a picture of what the main entrance hall looks like. This is fairly typical. If you want to check your coat, there is a line rivaling the ones at Magic Mountain at Disney World. You will also have to wait in line to buy your tickets, etc etc… there is also no bathroom in the main lobby.
