Contemporary Jewish Museum
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.
