The New Museum

Rising like a misfit among the tenements and restaurant supply stores that line the Bowery, the New Museum rises above with the teetering stack of metal mesh-clad boxes that are finished with a cartoonish rainbow stamp that simply states, “HELL YES.” Very Japanese, yet… very New York. Tokyo design partners, SANAA brought their creation to what was once home to one of the seediest hoods in Manhattan. Although an unlikely choice for a museum, “new art and new ideas” seem to fit for this contemporary museum; or at least offer less resistance than the Whole Foods down the block. The seven-story building houses three main levels with a raw and exposed space for artwork. There’s also a theater, café and rooftop terraces. I’d highly recommend checking out the museum on Thursday evenings from 7-10pm and your visit will be free. Hell yes!
