Remember the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s “Pay As You Wish” admission policy? Fuhgeddaboudit! That’s what the New York museum is telling New Jerseyans. Effective in March, all non- New York state residents are required to pay the full $25 entrance fee to see renowned pieces like Monet’s “The Water Lily Pond,” Vermeer’s “Portrait of a Young Woman” and much more. Admission remains free for children under age 12, while the museum will still offer the pay-as-youwish policy to students in the tri-state area. “It’s a little obnoxious,” says Emerson resident Sabrina Harrington, 37. “We live 20 minutes away and might visit several times a year, yet we have to pay. Meanwhile, there are people in Buffalo and Syracuse, about six hours away, who get in for free. Something isn’t right about that.”
