Roof Garden at The Met

During the summer the Met museum opens up the roof garden. They serve beer and cocktails and along with drinks, we get to enjoy some great views of the mid-town skyline.

This summer the roof garden has three sculptures by American artist Jeff Koons on display. They are whimsical and make the roof garden a fun spot to unwind on a Friday night.

The balloon dog is my personal favorite.

I'm not sure if this is a hear, an apple, or just a gift - but if you look closely you can see Michael and I in the reflection.

This last piece was very different than the other two - it was translucent, so even though it is large it didn't seem as imposing as the other sculptures.

Weather permitting the roof garden will be open until October - definitely worth a visit.
