Recently, Jill went to NYC to visit she and Steve’s oldest daughter, Molly, who lives and works in the city with her husband. While there, the duo visited the Whitney Museum, which is now located in an amazing new building (designed by Renzo Piano) in the Meatpacking District, at the start of the High Line.
Some of the highlights of the museum/their visit…
- It’s not too big, not too small – an ideal size to feel as if you can take the time to enjoy everything, while still making a bit of a special trip.
- The museum features American art, along with public exhibits that will change out. While there, Jill and Molly enjoyed Laura Poitras’ “Astro Noise.”
- There are lovely outdoor spaces, where you can experience the neighborhood, which includes One World Trade and the Empire State buildings.
- Fantastic for families for all of the above, plus food is available within the museum with several food cart options right outside on the street.
- It’s very accessible for all – including those who use wheelchairs or strollers.
- There are plenty of very pleasant and knowledgeable staff members circulating throughout the Whitney Museum, who are happy to answer any questions.
- The pair’s favorite viewings included all the Edward Hopper works, George Bellows and the Calder Circus!
If you’re planning a vacation to the Big Apple, or are fortunate enough to reside there, but haven’t yet been to the new Whitney Museum, we highly recommend planning a visit – enjoy!!
