    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.

    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.
