One of our favorite museums to visit in New York City is The Whitney. When we heard they were moving from their long-time home on Manhattan’s Upper East Side to a downtown location in the Meatpacking District, we couldn’t be be more excited for them to open their new doors on May 1, 2015. What better place to take in modern and contemporary art than the museum’s new location between the High Line and the Hudson?

This summer, The Whitney reopens with three incredible exhibits – including America Is Hard To See, which was curated from the museum’s own collection and reexamines the history of art in the United States from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present.  Certainly worth a trip if we do say so ourselves.

And through September 27th, The Whitney is open late, until 10pm, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, so there’s no excuse not to pay a visit. Can’t make it in-person? No problem. Take a virtual tour of The Whitney’s new location.
