    New location is bigger and better. Make sure to spend time in their outside space. Especially with the colorful chairs. Great views of lower Manhattan and the water

    The Whitney has found its new home, and it's a beauty. Start on the 8th floor and make sure to check the outdoor space. Untitled is a great restaurant by Danny Meyer in the lobby.

    Beautiful use of indoor/outdoor space. Buy tix online to avoid a wait or the individual membership is a good deal if you live in the neighborhood.

    Go with an open mind. Don t expect traditional art. Don t consider the art rationally. Let your heart and spirit guide you.
