As promised–pictures! Here is Megan on the lovely deck of her new house.

Jane Austen also enjoyed the house, especially sliding down the banisters…

The Metropolitan Museum (the Temple of Dendur, and the Nattier portrait that made an appearance on Project Runway!)

Central Park!

Parmigianino’s Antea at the Frick (not my own pic–no photos allowed!)

…And Emma Hamilton at the Frick

A Rowlandson print from the Yale Center for British Art (again, no photos allowed! And no pointing, either)

It was a busy few days, yet I still only got to see a fraction of what I wanted! Maybe next year…

And, since it’s the anniversary of the day Shakespeare was baptized (April 26, 1564 at Holy Trinity Church in Stratford), here is one of my favorite monologues from Romeo and Juliet:

Come night; come, Romeo; come, thou day in night;
For thou wilt lie upon the wings of night
Whiter than new snow upon a raven’s back.
Come, gentle night; come, loving, black-browed night;
Give me my Romeo; and, when he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.

So, happy late birthday, Shakespeare! What is your favorite Shakespeare play? Or your favorite spots to visit in New York? (I’m making my list for the next trip…)

And don’t forget–A Sinful Alliance is still on shelves. Including the Borders in Fairfield, CT! And on May 19, Alex Logan, my new editor at Grand Central Publishing, is going to join us here at Risky Regencies to talk about GCP’s romance program and answer questions. Don’t miss it!
