Whitney Museum of American Art

Meatpacking
Art Museum

The Whitney’s move to its shiny  Renzo Piano–designed building at the southern end of the High Line in 2015 has brought with it new energy and excitement. Now with 63,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor exhibition space, the New York institution is putting on ambitious new shows—including, in the past, a major Frank Stella retrospective and commissioned works by filmmaker Laura Poitras—and exhibits that highlight rarely seen works from the impressive permanent collection. Plan to spend the entire day here: With the excellent Untitled restaurant on the ground floor and a café on the eighth, and numerous terraces from which to enjoy spectacular city views and some fresh air, there’s really no reason to rush.
