Art Museum

“The Metropolitan Museum of Art, or the Met, as it is commonly known, was founded in 1870, and is one of the most famous museums in the United States. The permanent collection of The Met contains more than two million works of art, spanning a period of 5,000 years. Although the museum has three sites, the centerpiece is The Met Fifth Avenue. Highlights of the collection include American decorative arts, arms and armor, costumes, Egyptian art, musical instruments, photographs, and much more. Exhibitions bring some of the world's most famous works to the public. If you are serious about your visit to the Met, consider a VIP: Empty Met Tour at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and see this incredible museum with just 25 people before it opens to the general public in the morning. The Met Cloisters, located in Fort Tryon Park in northern Manhattan, is another extremely popular New York museum. This branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, housed in an outstanding structure, built around medieval cloisters, chapels, and halls, focuses on the medieval art and architecture of Europe. Address: 1000 5th Avenue, New York, New York”

“Previously an old school, this was bought by MoMa and turned into a contemporary art museum. Pro tip - if you’re here in the summer check out MoMa PS1 Warm up. It’s a day party every Saturday in the outdoor courtyard featuring different musicians/dj’s, with beer and wine vendors, and you can also stroll in and out of the museum as you please. ”

“They have the famous gold Klimt. It's a very small museum so it makes it pricy, but if you love Klimt, it's a must. They also have a great german cafe too, but it's also pricey (but tasty)!”

“It's a bit of a trek to get here, but this calm, uncrowded and beautiful museum is my favorite in NYC, whether or not you're familiar with Noguchi's work. An under-appreciated gem, you can combine a visit here with the wonderful Socrates Sculpture Park nearby on the East River, with great Manhattan views. ”

“Pioneer Works often has something interesting going on - either art installation or performance-wise. There's a related bookstore on Van Brunt St. If nothing else, it'll get you to Red Hook, an interesting neighborhood on the waterfront to poke around in on. Some of the older residential streets still feel like a fishing village from days gone by. There is a pier at the end of Conover Street with a great view of the Statue of Liberty, a few good restaurants and multiple bars. Fairway is a huge supermarket where you can purchase lunch or breakfast and eat it outside on the water. Or you can shop at IKEA if that is more up your alley. In season on the weekends, there are multiple Latin food trucks on Bay Street. ”
