    Jeff Koons was great and what really made it was the public tour my friend and I globbed onto. Very informative and gave context that helped inform the whole exhibit. Also, great selfie opportunities.

    Got here at 5:15 for their free Fridays and the line was pretty manageable (spot was as you just turned the corner on 75th).

    If the line is around the block, just head to member desk and become a member: You break even after a couple visits, and get to skip the lines, plus the other perks.

    The large elevator is tempting, but take the stairs to the right of it ... Usually much faster.
