A collection of over 21,000 works of art at the foot of the High Line....

The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York

The Whitney Museum of American Art moved downtown from Madison Avenue on the Upper East Side in 2015, now at the foot of the High Line in the Meatpacking District- it’s cool again. The new $422 million building, designed by Renzo Piano (who also designed the New York Times building, the London Shard, and an expansion for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art), has floor-to-ceiling windows and a terrace overlooking the High Line, the Manhattan skyline, and the Hudson River. There’s a generosity to the architecture that makes it feel spacious and vast, wander through and you’ll find classics from Edward Hopper, Georgia O’Keefe and Alexander Calder. Oh and prized NYC-restaurateur Danny Meyer runs the restaurant, Untitled- open for lunch and dinner should you need to re-fuel on the scene.
