    Find the restrooms on floor 6. They’re behind a door with no handle built into the gallery wall. On your left will be a door to a staircase. Enter it and watch the sun set.

    Get your tickets to the Whitney online and arrive at opening time. Since you already have tickets you can walk right into the lobby and by pass the line that has formed.

    Buy a membership and skip the line. If you buy online, go straight to the membership desk by the door. The guards have no clue where to send you.

    Good museum, especially if contemporary art is your thing. But NYC has better museums that are worthy of days of exploration. Some good exhibitions, and beautiful views of the Hudson from the roof.

    I would advise to begin your your from the top to bottom. They are open late so don't worry about getting there early in the day. Go in a little bit later to enjoy the dawn.

    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 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.

    Start at the top floor and use the outside steps to walk down from floor to floor.

    This museum is a masterpiece. From scenic views in the stairwells and the balconies to the striking modern architecture by Piano the new Whitney is perfectly fit to present Americas history thru art

    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.

    Bold design lives here. The Whitney Museum of American Art’s distinctively modern style is distinguished by its staircase facade and its external upside-down windows. Find more bold: A7bolddesign.com Read more

    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.
