THE MU­SEUM OF MOD­ERN ART 11 W. 53rd St

Business Traveler (USA) - - COVER STORY -

Suf­fi­ciently jazzed up on bak­ery sweets, we can fully ap­pre­ci­ate the over-thetop en­ergy that is Times Square. Packed with neon lights, gi­ant bill­boards and elec­tronic ticker tape, this truly feels like the Cross­roads of the World. Here, we’ll find the re­cently re­opened TKTS Dis­count Booth to pick up some half-off tick­ets for a Broad­way show tonight. With any luck, it’ll be a Tony win­ner.

Next we’ll head up­town to pay a visit to the Mu­seum of Mod­ern Art on 53rd just off 5th Av­enue. MoMA is a sig­nif­i­cant show­case for mod­ern masters and has a num­ber of must­see works – van Gogh’s The Starry Night, An­drew Wyeth’s Christina’s World and Henri Matisse’s Dance, to name a few. But MoMA also man­ages seven cu­ra­to­rial de­part­ments – Ar­chi­tec­ture and De­sign, Draw­ings, Paint­ing and Sculp­ture, Pho­tog­ra­phy, Prints and Il­lus­trated Books, Film, and Me­dia and Per­for­mance Art. Each con­trib­utes its own essence to the col­lec­tions in this bright and am­ple space, cen­tered around an airy fivestory atrium and over­look­ing a sculp­ture gar­den. Sum­mer hours Sun through Fri 10:30 AM – 8 PM, Sat 10:30 AM to 5:30 PM. Tick­ets cost $25, but ev­ery Fri­day evening from 4:00 to 8:00 PM ad­mis­sion is free.
