150 Metropolitan Anniversary
2020 brings many great festivals and celebrations to New York City, one of them, and one of the most emblematic this year, is the 150th anniversary of the Met (The Metropolitan Museum of Art) one of the most wonderful institutions in the Big Apple.
The celebration will take place from March 30 to August 2, during which time a series of very interesting exhibitions and cultural activities will be held. One of the most important activities of the 150 years of the Met is the exhibition of 250 works from its private collection, works that are not frequently exhibited.
The exhibition of the 150 years of the Met is divided into 10 sections, with a connecting axis called The Street, a path that will show us the history of the museum.
The Met opened its doors in 1870 and is one of the most visited museums by tourists, with a record 6.5 million visits in 1 year. Its collection is one of the most precious in the world and no doubt visiting this museum is one of the best plans you can make in New York in 2020.
Another great attraction you can enjoy in 2020 in New York is The Edge, the new observatory of the city. This place will be the tallest exterior viewpoint in the Big Apple. Part of its balcony is made of glass, so if you look down you will see the asphalt, a real challenge for those who are afraid of heights.
On the other hand, the terrace of this observatory will not be closed by railings, but by glass panels that are inclined outwards, something fantastic, a different attraction to the observatories that already exist in the city. As a matter of fact, The Edge is 335 meters high.
This amazing place also has a bar and a restaurant that are located on the 101st floor of the building, which you can visit, spend a relaxing time while watching New York from the top. Without a doubt, The Edge will be one of the best attractions in the city, a must-see destination on any tour of New York.
