Simplifying NYC: Top Picks for Best (Free!) Art Spots
from GuggenheimGramercy Park Hotel Did you know that the Gramercy Park Hotel has a fabulous art collection? Throughout the hotel you can see pieces from Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Enoc Perez and more! The hotel is so glamourous, I love to pop in for a drink or a bite. But if you're on a budget you can walk through the lobby and see some of these amazing pieces!
from Gramercy Park HotelMoMa PS1 MOMA's PS1 in Long Island City is as free as you can get for museum quality exhibitions. It's donation based and the suggested donation for adults is $10. That's a steal. It's even cheaper than most yoga classes! The summer events are always a good time. You have a few more weeks to get over there!
from MOMA's PS1The High Line I'm a huge fan of The High Line. During off-peak hours you can walk blocks quicker than you would if you were walking on the streets below, and you're walking amongst gorgeous greenery. The public art on The High Line is constantly changing, so you can see several pieces a year.
from The High LineThe Museum at FIT FIT is known around the world as the school to go to if you're interested in fashion. They also have a fabulous fashion museum right on campus! There are some serious retrospectives and exhibits at the FIT museum, I'm always blown away. If you love fashion, you have to check it out!
