If you want to experience the excitement of what New York City can do best, a visit to this gallery is a must. It's true that NYC is full of wonderful museums and galleries and I love them all, but I can get the same...More
We have visited this small museum several times in the past and always have found it to be quite enjoyable and one of the "gems" of the art community. Of course, the star attraction is the Klimt painting, not only for its inherent beauty but...More
Neue Galerie has an amazing permanent collection of early 20th century German and Austrian art. In addition to paintings the collection includes examples of decorative arts from the period. It is small enough that one can appreciate both the permanent collection and any special exhibitions...More
We joined others in going to this gallery to see the Klimt portraits. On their own it was worth the trip, but all other paintings and silverware are simply gorgeous. The cafe is emblematic of being in 1930s Vienna.
I'm not an art connoisseur and only went to see the Gustav Klimt painting of Adele Bloch-Bauer: The Woman in Gold. Yup, looked just like it does in the photos. There were other things to see, and the staff tried to help, but it's just...More
A very elegant and small gallery with lots of character, which opens at 11am. Visited the Cafe first which opens at 9am. Had a very nice coffee and sacher torte. Attentive and friendly staff. A security bag check first in the entrance was handled in...More
It must be tricky being on New York’s museum mile and competing with the giants of the Met and Guggenheim. However the way you definitely don’t do is the way this pretentious little spot does. Ferocious security (you can’t even take small bottle of water...More
I popped into the Neue Gallery because I wasn’t interested in waiting in an endless line for the Guggenheim. One thinks of the Neue as a limited gallery and it is, in the sense that it features Austrian and German artists and is quite small....More
Very close to the Met so we strolled over and were delighted to discover that because they were between exhibitions there was no set admission. We went up and spent a lot of time looking at the "Woman in Gold." It is a glorious painting....More
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the
neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
Walked in straight off the street. Lost our drink bottles and I can say the Woman in Gold was amazing to see but left a little underwhelmed by the none friendly staff and loosing our water. In and out in less than 20 minutes.
Where do I start on this trip report? (12 Replies)
I'll give you the rough bones of what we did on our trip and observations which may be of use or interest or neither! Central Park- I was expecting this big huge flat space- not like that at all- it's all wee hidden "nooks and crannies"- very peaceful in some parts and very New York in others! Watch out there are main roads which run right thru it so there is traffic going across which you don't expect in a park. We saw roller bladers, baseball players, cyclists, people doing tai chai, 2...More

Glad you enjoyed and found out the NY secret - you can live here without knowing any English.
Neue Galerie - Free First Fridays Question (10 Replies)
We are arriving in NYC on July 3. We will be there until the 11th and plan to see many museums. I specifically want to see the Klimt exhibit at Neue Galerie. How crowded is that specific museum in Free First Fridays normally? We are trying to decide if we should try and take advantage of this offer of plan it for a different day and pay full admission. It is always nice to save money but I don't want to feel as if I am wasting a lot of time standing in line when there is so much to see. I...More
