Everytime we're in New York City, we make one trip to the Whitney since we're big Edward Hopper fans. Most of the time, the same works are displayed that we saw on our previous visits but still there are always a few that are different....More

This is the poorest excuse for an art exhibit I could possibly imagine. Please don't waste your money. They have a virtual reality of a person being murdered right in front of you in the most horrific fashion, in the name of art, it will...More

The architecture is very interesting and we spent a good time on the terraces looking at the beautiful view. Inside I enjoyed the contemporary exhibit, and also the Whitney's Collection with beautiful pieces I always saw only on photographs, like Hopper or Rothko. Slightly upset...More

This museum has the greatest collection of Hopper's and it was well worth the trip. The elderly guide was amazing with so much knowledge and spoke from the heart. Do follow her if she's on. The view from the terrace is superb even on a...More

The museum building is a work of art in itself. The use of glass and views are spectacular. The 20 and 21st century American art shown there is first rate. It’s a must for people who enjoy contemporary art.

This building is amazing, fabulous, exciting, and wonderful. I started on the top floor and walked out on each cantilevered arm and then went down a floor. What a weird feeling and many picture opportunities. I enjoyed all the other floors the same way. I...More

I enjoyed seeing the enormous new Whitney, which architecturally is as different from the old one as day is from night. It's multiple stories, lots of windows, with a lot of natural light (not the brutalist style of the old Whitney, now the Met Breuer)....More

The museum itself is a lot of fun. It takes you outside to change levels so you can see the NY skyline. It is also at the end of the High Line. Parking is very bad. Take a subway or bus.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

We went on a Saturday and there weren't any significant lines then. I would imagine that it would be even better on a weekday.
