"Andy Warhol—From A to B and Back Again" is a very detailed and comprehensive retrospective. The exhibition is located on 3 levels/floors, 5th, 3rd, and 1st, but its main part is concentrated on the 5th floor, where approximately 90% of all showcased works are displayed....More

Having only seen Andy Warhol's famous portraits on the printed page of a book, I can tell you that seeing them in person gives you a deeper understanding of his creativity and the variety of mediums used. This exhibit is spaced out on 3 floors....More

I toured the new Whitney Museum location with group of friends. We took on the Andy Warhol Exhibit. It was the most extensive exhibit with many of his pieces from private collections.

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.

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.
