If you visit MoMA, you get a free pass to visit the MoMA PS1 derivative in Long Island City. That's where I was staying, so I went to PS1 after my visit to the rather more grandiose main MoMA.

I hadn't heard about this place until my friend, a native of NYC, mentioned it as a potential museum spot I hadn't visited yet. I found it to be a delightful surprise.

Huge variety of styles. We skipped the ones we didn't like and still spent a couple of hours inside. Some of the displays are even pretty funny. Some are just brilliant.

I Enjoyed this museum. Modern art. On a Friday night its free.! Saw modern but also traditional art. Starry night of Van Gogh was awesome to see. Amazing how many famous works are in this museum. You can also get a bite to eat here at reasonable prices

A world class museum in an unpretentious part of nyc. Cool. Cool. Cool. Worth a day trip by ferry then stop at Lic flee for a tasty bite or eat in their fabulous cafe. Always interesting exhibits in a spacious, creative environment.
