Be­fore you en­ter, pause to ap­pre­ci­ate the iconic geo­met­ric ar­chi­tec­ture of the steel build­ing. It was a power sta­tion in the 1800s and redesigned by Daniel Libe­skind. In­side the lobby, look up to ad­mire the 90-foot-long “Lamp of the Covenant” sculp­ture with its sus­pended globes. Go up­stairs to check out the lat­est ex­hibit, “From Gen­er­a­tion to Gen­er­a­tion: In­her­ited Mem­ory and Con­tem­po­rary Art,“which ex­plores per­sonal, re­layed and imag­ined mem­o­ries. Next, stop in to see the cor­re­spond­ing “Yud Video Project” in a strik­ing gallery with sharply an­gled walls and dozens of kite-shaped sky­lights. End your visit with a pas­trami sand­wich at Wise Sons Jewish Del­i­catessen.
