    Our concierge Ella at Smyth recommends going to the SkyRoom during their free Thursday nights for the best view of the LES imaginable.

    You won't find a permanent collection here, so this innovative museum is radically different each time you visit.

    it's hard to find complex art, sometimes weird, beautiful and meaningful architecture and thoughtful interior design in one just space!

    Unless you have something specific you want to see, don't bother. Underwhelming, weird, surly staff, and not enough explanation. 1/5 stars - would not come again.

    Expensive but the art is great. Won't take too long to get through

    If there's a line for tickets, buy online and skip to the front to go straight in. The exhibits are always super modern. The top floor has a nice view of the financial district skyline.

    This is a place of extremes. The Sky Room rocks, but the galleries feel like high-end interrogation cells. The art can be really good or bad. The vibe, serene or scene-y. All depends on the show.

    Thursday nights are pay what you want, so basically you can get in for a couple of bucks OR if you have no shame, FREE!! You can see everything here in less than an hour. Don't do the full admission.

    Founded in 1977. New art, new ideas...amazing. Parties here are a must. Great place to see live music as well.

    A short walk down the Bowery, this aluminum landmark functions as a stack of mismatched galleries and acts as a local beacon for avant-garde lovers and the culturally curious alike.

    "Here and Elsewhere" It's a must see. Provocative and intense.

    Don't park your bike here. It will be gutted, ravaged, and left to die

    Beautiful and intriguing building! Start on the top floor with nice views over Soho. But more important get inspired by the contemporary art placed in the huge rooms with crazy high ceilings. Read more

    The New Museum celebrates art rather than just presenting it; it renders adults something akin to playful children looking at the world through new eyes. The leading authority on contemporary art.

    One of my favorite museums - and the best of the Lower East Side. Check out Elena del Rivero's exhibition to commemorate the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

    Check out Ann Hirsh's iPad app, Twelve. Her art, (like Playground) takes a richly nuanced digital native view of what most of us would immediately label pedophilloic predation. But she won't let you.

    Great architecture. Worth the visit, especially when there's live avantgarde jazz music going on, and you're digging into the bookstore or having your coffee at the same time.
