One of the most outstanding art museums I have ever visited, and the location beside the Hudson and at the end of the Highline is wonderful. There are well-curated temporary exhibits, and the selections from the permanent collection are great. Well worth the money for...More

Our recent visit was a bit of a disappointment, especially the Andy Warhol Retrospective. I think Andy Warhol has become so commercialized over the years that doing an AW exhibition is an exercise in redundancy. Had I realized this I would have spent more time...More

The Warhol exhibit was the draw for my visit, but I was equally impressed with several Whitney collection exhibits. It was smart for us to get tickets on-line before our arrival, as we were able to walk in without getting in line (even on the...More

Not really a Warhol fan but the exhibit really told his story well. The work is outlandish but I knew that much going in. It was interesting to see all of it up close and personal. And the Whitney Museum is worth it alone to...More

First, this is not as hyped the biggest Warhol show in the US in 30 years. That was LA in 2002. (This show has numerically more objects, but it has far fewer important pieces.) And, it does not measure up to the Grand Palais retrospective...More

I have to say Warhol is not my favorite but it was awesome to see so much of his work in one place. Many of his well known pieces are there. As well as lesser known pieces, sketches, videos and more. I never realized how...More

I just adored the Andy Warhol exhibit at the Whitney. So well organized, lots of great gifts in the Shop and wonderful docents as well. Love the new venue in the heart of the Meatpacking District. Really fabulous!

I really never understood Warhol until I saw this exhibit. The retrospective was extremely well done with pieces of his early works all the way up to his final piece. The paintings are spread over three floors, I would say you need about two to...More

Great retrospective exhibit of Warhol's life works tracing his start in the late 1950s until his death in 1987. Many of his most iconic works are displayed. Well worth getting your tickets in advance online, beat the ticket line and crowds at the door.

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.

Specific questions first, then some general comments: >>>My question is: is it safe to explore Bushwhack and Williamsburg during daylight on my own by foot<<< Absolutely - I go to both on my own and feel totally comfortable. There may be some parts, particularly in Bushwick, that are grittier and less densely populated, and where I can see how a solo, first-time visitor might have some qualms, but (a) they're still safe to walk around during the day and (b) I assume...More
