    restaurants, playground, the Metropolitan

    Wollman Rink.
         Metropolitan Museum of Art.

   The Met is a universal museum: every category of
    art in every known medium from every part of the
    world during every epoch of recorded time is
    represented here and thus available for
    contemplation or study- not in isolation but in
    comparison whit other times, other cultures, and
    other media.

    decades of the 20th century the word got around
