    Try the carrot cake in the cafe - it looks as if it's part of the museum exhibit. And the view from there is one of the best in NY.

    New building! New attitude! Yummy food at upper level cafe. Recommend: take the middle lift car up to 5 and as the doors open, look across gallery at a classic piece that says: New York City.
