Medium sized art museum with several installations. They had a great smallish book store and an expensive cafe. You must check your backpack; it’s free. My son is a fan of modern art so he liked the place very much.

Got a free mama ps1 ticket with a purchase of a MoMa ticket. Came to see the momaps1 whilst visiting Queens, and was not disappointed. It was nice to see this area and this place had cool and interesting things to see.

Nice space, so wasted for an artist whom seemed unable to know what to do with his life until he decided to define nonsense as art. Please do spend 9 min watching his balls bounce or being smeared in black paint, if you can

I enjoyed this museum. And I got in for free last time I went! They have a ton of events and the art is cool and modern. Worth a stop here if you are into modern art and in the area.

Third rate exhibits. And the MOMA curators have confused art and their own radical political views. Don't waste your time or money.

PS1 is easy to reach by taking the 7 train to Court Square. I found the retrofit of an old NYC school added to the experience of seeing current exhibits. Its affiliation with MoMA has been a positive one, and the work shown is often...More

Such great pleasure to wander the hallways and spaces of this wonderful, old-has-become-new building. Much more digestible than the MOMA itself but by no means less relevant and interesting.

Help with Queens itinerary please (19 Replies)
I'll be spending 7 nights in NYC next month, and one of the days (or half of it) I'd like to dedicate it to Queens. I'd like to see Moma PS1, Gantry Plaza State Park and walk around Astoria and Long Island City. Any recommendation would be much appreciated (pubs, good food, areas not to miss...). Thank you.

you need to plot these on a map (googlemaps will work) and then i think you will see that you are not grouping things geographically. your plans now have you all over the place on several days; you will see more and spend less time travelling around if you group them.
Art museums in western Queens? (4 Replies)
My girlfriend and I are visiting western Queens soon (by ferry to Hallets Cove, Astoria) to see the Socrates Sculpture Park and some street art. I know there are many great art museums nearby-- MOMA PS1, Noguchi Museum, the Sculpture Center, and others. We will likely only have time (40-60 minutes) to visit one. Which do people feel is the most interesting? Thanks!

Response fromjhwanderer|
If you're at Socrates, the Noguchi museum has the advantage of being basically across the street. You'll blow half of your 40 minutes getting down to any of the other museums. Everything else is at least a mile from Socrates. PS1 is way too big and good to take on in that limited a time frame. Fisher-Landau is a really good, little known 'snackable' museum/gallery for contemporary work, which you can definitely do in an hour, but it's a 20-minute walk or 10-minute taxi ride away from...More
