The #NewWhitney building is as modern as its art, designed by architect Renzo Piano, who also designed the Shard in London. As of May 1, 2015, the Whitney collection moved from 945 Madison Avenue to its trendier new downtown location on Ganesevoort Street, at the start of the highline. It is now the largest column-free museum gallery in NYC. Check it out on Fridays from 7-9 for a pay-what-you-wish donation, but get there early to beat the line, which moves pretty quickly.
Below are some highlights of the inaugural exhibit, “America Is Hard to See” and the very sophisticated yet artsy café (downstairs) where we got milk and cookies, called “untitled” and the panaromic view from the rooftop café perfect for watching the sunset over the Hudson.
