This Monday a 42-year NYC tradition comes to an end:  The Metropolitan Museum of Art retires the metal button and moves to a paper sticker.  For some who have enjoyed the museum over the years, those bright buttons have been a ritual as dear as a morning cup of coffee.  When you can’t quite bring yourself to discard them in the receptacle as you leave the museum, they stack up like bright little lollipops here and there in a trinket dish, cup holder, or the like.  As with many changes these days, it’s a cost saving measure.  Understood.  But I’ll miss them.  It’s not all sad news at the Met these days however.  The museum will now be open 7 days a week… another day of art for tourists and locals alike to soak in.
