Whitney Museum of American Art
This long-standing art institution relocated from its Upper East Side post in the Breuer Building to a new Meatpacking District locale, just blocks down from Chelsea on trendy Gansevoort Street. Not only does it offer striking riverfront views, but the $422-million, 50,000-square-foot space is strategically located at the base of the High Line, so visitors can take a stroll on the elevated pedestrian path before diving into the works of the world’s most revered contemporary artists. Modern art lovers will appreciate permanent exhibitions by greats such as Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol and Georgia O'Keeffe, along with installations by artists-in-residence and visiting exhibits like Archibald Motley’s, whose Jazz Age Modernist runs from now through mid-January. Along with its fancy new home, the Whitney now lays claim to the elegant Untitled restaurant, a new Danny Meyer concept with Gramercy Tavern alum Michael Anthony at the helm.
