    There's too many great museums in NYC to list, but the Whitney is always an easy choice for more contemporary artwork, and finding new artists that you might not hear of elsewhere.

Tips from foursquare

  • Get here fast because the museum is moving downtown to the Meatpacking District. Their new six-story, 195,000-square-foot building will be designed by Renzo Piano and cost $680 million.

  • Designed by Marcel Breuer, the Whitney Museum's current building opened in 1966. Jacqueline Kennedy attended the building on opening day.

    Make sure you see Paul Thek's "meat" sculptures and other objects on display; this pioneer of installation art influenced such contemporary art stars as Damien Hirst. Oct 21–Jan 9.

  • BLOUIN ARTINFO on 07/30/10

    Started after the Met turned down gifts from Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, this shining star owns 18,000 works - 3,116 by Edward Hopper.

    Even though Fridays are pay-what-you-will, the traffic is more than manageable.
