NEW YORK CITY | The Metropolitan Museum of Art of ‘the Met’ consists of three museums – Fifth Avenue, Cloisters, and Bruer, but it’s the main building on Fifth Avenue that most people visit. It’s collection spans over 5,000 years of art and chronicles some of humanity’s greatest achievements.

Founded on 13 April 1970, the Met aims to encourage and develop the study of the fine arts, and the application of arts to manufacture and practical life, and to advance the general knowledge of such art. It does this in many ways, the most obvious being its permanent collection. Expect to see things like ancient Greek and Roman art, five of the 36 remaining Johannes Vermeer paintings in the world, Asian art, Islamic art, paintings from the likes of Van Gogh, Monet, Degas, Cézanne, and Picasso, and the Temple of Dendur – and actual ancient Egyptian temple.

As well as the Met’s permanent displays, there’s also an ongoing series of exhibitions and events, revealing both new ideas and unexpected connections across time and cultures. Make sure you set aside a full day to fully appreciate what the museum has to offer.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
