A remarkable art collection. Starry Night is my favorite painting but it was mobbed with tourists, so that was not an enjoyable experience. I advise you to arrive early and visit the Starry Night first if you want to view it in relative peace. But other painting were not mobbed and I really enjoyed my time looking at other paintings....

Took kids to moma Friday evening as we had a limited amount of time and wanted to tie it in with something else in midtown. Plus an added attraction was that Fridays from 4-8 pm is free entry. We never ended up getting in at all. It was chaos inside. Finally a staff member told us we had to go... More

Is just one of the MANY reasons to go and not even the best one. We saw Andy Warhol's soup cans and Marilyn Monroe screen prints a\that are so iconic I almost had to pinch myself. the Post-impressionist paintings were some of the best in the world. We enjoyed the Yoko Ono one woman show mostly for it's excentricity and... More

MoMA should be on your list if you are visiting NYC or live in NYC. They have a large collection of art including photographs and also have a wonderful cafe where you can enjoy great views and delicious food.

In my opinion, you must go here if you visit NYC. There are many interesting exhibits such as Warhol, Pollock, Picasso, Monet etc. Stay there for 1-2 hours and I can guarantee you will enjoy your time there!

First and only time I have ever been to the museum. I was with a school group and on a tight schedule. I only got to see parts of the building. Walked out and immediately wished I had another day or two in there. I definitely recommend getting a map and marking off the locations you've been. It is very... More

MOMA must be a part of your trip to NYC. We, who have the privilege of living in NYC, think of MOMA as part of the fabric of the city visit several times a year. Whether you go to see the outstanding classic modern paintings, or browse the museum store full of interesting items for design or decor, you will... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
