51: Mets versus Braves at Citi Field NEW YORK -- When the Mets blew an early lead by allowing five runs to the Braves on bloopers and broken bats, Justin Turner knew exactly what everyone was thinking. "I'm sure most of the people watching the game were like 'Here we go again,'" he said. We're Goin' Streaking! Braves teammates Dan Uggla and Freddie Freeman have been red-hot lately, with each racking up hits in at least 20 straight games. Turner put a stop to that by hitting his second homer of the game to put New York up for good in the fourth inning and the Mets stopped a five-game losing streak with an 11-7 victory over Atlanta on Saturday night.

87: Havana Central Restaurant and Bar Occupying a stretch of 46th Street better known as Little Brazil, this cavernous restaurant serves up food from an entirely different Latin-American country, Cuba. Overhead fans spin from the soaring ceiling, and huge potted palms | separate booths from a long, dark, wooden bar. Servers ferry pitchers of sangria and trays of mojitos to a mixed crowd of suits, extended families, and occasional Times Square tourists. The food is plentiful and true to its homeland. Ropa Vieja, Arroz con Camarones, Salmón Glaseado en Salsa de Mango, and Combinacion Para Amantes de Carne de Cerdo.

88: Flaming Cactus Debuted at FIGMENT 2011 in the Governor's Island Season-Long Sculpture Garden. Its awesomeness caught the eye of NYC’s Department of Transportation who tripled the size of the project for its “Summer Streets” program. Twelve plus Flaming Cactuses will sprout up in and around Astor Place for the month of August. Flaming Cactus transforms lampposts with fluorescent colored zip ties which are linked together in order to go around the circumference of the lampposts. This done thousands of times creates a brightly colored lamppost with thousands of little “hairs” (the ends of the cable ties), just like a cactus. A neon psychedelic cactus. The artists wanted to create something of beauty out of everyday items and that creating art doesn’t require a lot of resources, formal education, or even money.

89: Stomp One of New York's unique entertainment experiences. A rotating cast of eight energetic young performers create rhythms and, yes, music, with their hands and feet and all manner of noisy objects, such as hammers, garbage can lids, buckets, and so on. Their technical skill is truly awesome: this perfectly synchronized ballet of juggled sticks, drums, and what-have-you is indeed thrilling to witness. Music, Dance, Theatre, Choreography or Performance Art? All of the above! Or is it none of the above. Well, both are sort of right... In a way. Confused? read on... STOMP is a movement, of bodies, objects, sounds - even abstract ideas. But what makes it so appealing is that the cast uses everyday objects, but in non-traditional ways.

90: The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the world's largest and finest art museums. Its collections include more than two million works of art spanning five thousand years of world culture, from prehistory to the present and from every part of the globe. Founded in 1870, the Metropolitan Museum is located in New York City's Central Park along Fifth Avenue (from 80th to 84th Streets). Nearly five million people visit the Museum each year. The Met measures almost 1/4-mile long and with more than 2,000,000 square feet of floor space, more than 20 times the size of the original 1880 building. The museum building is an accretion of over twenty structures, most of which are not visible from the exterior.

92: Sphinx of Hatshepsut New Kingdom, Dynasty 18, reign of Hatshepsut, ca. 1473–1458 b.c. Egyptian Red granite with traces of blue and yellow paint Tiffany Glass on right | Ancient Egyptian Temple of Dendur Built about 15 B.C. by the Roman emperor Augustus. The temple was removed from its original site in 1963 in order to save it from being submerged by the construction of the Aswan High Dam. In recognition of the American assistance in saving various other monuments threatened by the dam's construction, Egypt presented the temple and its gate as a gift to the United States of America in 1965 and opened in the Metropolitan Museum in 1978. | Armor from the 1500's

93: American Wing Courtyad A wall of paintings by Auguste Renoir

94: The Path through the Irises Claude Monet , 1914-17, French Oil on canvas, 78 7/8" x 70 7/8" | Mao Andy Warhol, 1973 American Acrylic and silkscreen on canvas 176 1/2" x 136 1/2" | Irises Vincent van Gogh 1890, Dutch Oil on canvas 29" x 36 1/4" | The Death of Socrates Jacques-Louis David 1787, French Oil on canvas 29" x 36 1/4"

96: The Siesta Paul Gauguin French 1892-94 Oil on canvas 35" x 45 3/4" | Crucifixion Salvador Dali, Spanish, 1954 Oil on canvas, 76 1/2" x 48 3/4" | Oleanders Self-Portrait with a Straw Hat Cypress Vincent van Gogh, Dutch, 1887-1889 | Woman and Musketeer Pablo Picasso, 1967 Oil on canvas 39 3/8" x 31 7/8" | Stepping Out Roy Lichtenstein | Jackie Kennedy (1964) Andy Warhol

97: The Burger Joint The best burger in New York City, hidden behind the curtain in the atrium lobby of Le Parker Meridien Hotel.

98: Sequestered behind floor-to-ceiling curtains in the lobby of Le Parker Meridien hotel, the joint is the elegant hostelry's dirty little secret, offering guests—and anyone else who can find it—a $7 (including tax!) alternative to its own $20 room-service burger. Once you locate the entrance and push apart the drapes, half expecting a butler from Eyes Wide Shut to appear and ask you for the password, you'll find a coffee shop with faux-wood paneling, vinyl booths, and a few sports-page photos taped to the walls.
