Had such a wonderful day here. Started with a fantastic breakfast at the M. Wells Diner. Fun seating in a classroom style dining room. Menu on a chalk board and each seat came with notebooks to write in. We had pork belly quiche with tasty greens on the side. I can vouch for their lattes too. Frothy layered perfection! After...

It may seem like a long way to go, but just get on the 7 to Queens and do it. There's a dumpy taxi stand and some abandoned buildings but yes, you're in the right place. That old public school, the OG public school actually, PS1, is an afternoon dying to be wasted. Free admission with your MoMA stub too.... More

of course you have to visit Moma if you come to NYC, but if you did it already and not even once and you can tell that you are a good art observer, so take a train and go to PS1, their collection is amazing and you'll love the new art in their selection.

MOMA PS1 is a quick block away from the No. 7 train, Court Sq stop. This is where MOMA does rough modern, not like Manhattan smooth MOMA. The building itself is a white elephant, rambling so that you feel as if you could follow breadcrumbs into or out of exhibits. There are three floors with twisty turny paths into little... More

We went to PS1 for our first time this June. While the building is not HUGE, it is a really great reclaim. We spent a long time walking through, checking out some great installations, physical, audio, video. If you like very contemporary art, I would definitely make the trip over to PS1. What a gem. Finally, though we didn't eat... More

This old school house makes a great venue for this gallery. A highlight for me was out the old boiler and plumbing covered in gold leaf in the basement (easily missed). The video material wasn't to my taste - just too bonkers - but a Lassnig exhibition was excellent. It was nice to make a trip out of Manhattan as... More

It is my second visit to this fantastic museum - even though the current exhibitions aren't so interesting - the venue itself is wonderful, an old public school that was renovated and converted into this museum, the spaces are huge and strolling between school's classrooms and corridors offer a unique experience.

Visited w/ my wife and 30+ son. We are all very broad minded and especially my wife and I enjoy 20th century + art, regardless of the medium. Unfortunately the 3 of all were pretty uniform in that most of the exhibits were pretentious, self indulgent and certainly not suitable for children. The mixed media parts especially. Building is very... More

Paid a visit to MoMA on my recent visit to NYC. Loved the Gaugin exhibit!!! The gallery itself is comprised of six floors. I only had time to the see the main aforesaid exhibit. But also had a chance to see the fifth floor where there were some stellar paintings by Henri Matisse, Picasso, Van Gogh, and Salvador Dali. That... More

If you are not a hardcore modern art guy, the exhibition is alright. It is like many other galleries a nice way to bend your traditional lines of thinking and to stimulate alternative ways of looking at things. However, what I will remember most is the old school building with the corridors, rooms and staircases full of character.
