Channel your inner art connoisseur at this Meatpacking District museum. View influential artists like Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, and Edward Hopper with the Whitney’s Friday night “pay what you wish” ticket, available from 7 p.m. to 9:30 pm
My favorite museum due to its size, not too overwhelming! Great views and located in a beautiful park of the city, falling between the West Village and Meatpacking district. Lots of great places to eat and explore, I'd visit the Highline (outdoor park) afterwards! The Whitney is for American art,…
The Whitney Museum of American Art, known informally as the "Whitney", is an art museum in Manhattan. It was founded in 1930 by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, a wealthy and prominent American socialite and art patron after whom it is named. The Whitney focuses on 20th- and 21st-century American art.
The brand new Whitney sits in a Renzo Piano–designed building at the southern end of the High Line. The uptown Whitney decamped because of space constrictions, a situation that's now eased by its 200,000 square feet. Bonus: It's open until 10 p.m. on the weekends.

“NYC's favorite urban greenspace. It was formerly a railroad yard now it's a popular place to get married or roam around.”

“The Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York City, colloquially "the Met",[a] is the largest art museum in the United States. With 6,479,548 visitors to its three locations in 2019, it was the fourth most visited art museum in the world. Its permanent collection contains over two million works, divided among 17 curatorial departments. The main building at 1000 Fifth Avenue, along the Museum Mile on the eastern edge of Central Park in Manhattan's Upper East Side, is by area one of the world's largest art galleries. A much smaller second location, The Cloisters at Fort Tryon Park in Upper Manhattan, contains an extensive collection of art, architecture, and artifacts from medieval Europe. On March 18, 2016, the museum opened the Met Breuer museum along Madison Avenue on the Upper East Side; it extends the museum's modern and contemporary art program. The permanent collection consists of works of art from classical antiquity and ancient Egypt, paintings, and sculptures from nearly all the European masters, and an extensive collection of American and modern art. The Met maintains extensive holdings of African, Asian, Oceanian, Byzantine, and Islamic art. The museum is home to encyclopedic collections of musical instruments, costumes, and accessories, as well as antique weapons and armor from around the world. Several notable interiors, ranging from 1st-century Rome through modern American design, are installed in its galleries. The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded in 1870 for the purposes of opening a museum to bring art and art education to the American people. The Fifth Avenue building opened on February 20, 1872, at 681 Fifth Avenue.”

“An institution. For all art lovers, this is a must! Again, I like that this museum is smaller in size so that it's not too overwhelming and doesn't take a long time! Book tickets in advance online so that you can select your time slot. ”

“A walk, peddle, or carriage ride through the crisscrossing pathways of Central Park is a must-do on anyone's New York City itinerary. In winter, you can even lace up your skates and glide across Wollman Rink. This huge park in the city center, a half-mile wide and 2.5 miles long, is one of the things that makes New York such a beautiful and livable city. Besides being a great place to experience a little nature, Central Park has many attractions within its borders, and most of them are free, making it one of the few cheap things to do in NYC. Some of the most popular places to visit include the Belvedere Castle, Strawberry Fields, the Central Park Zoo, and the Lake. If you are exploring the park on your own, start by picking up a map at one of the visitor centers and plot your routing.”
