(Le) Poisson Rouge is a multimedia art cabaret founded by musicians on the site of the historic Village Gate. Dedicated to the fusion of popular and art cultures in music, film, theater, dance, and fine art, the venue’s mission is to revive the symbiotic relationship between art and revelry; to establish a creative asylum for both artists and audiences. As a professional musician myself, it is one of my favourite spots in the city, with high quality yet eclectic programming.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York, colloquially "the Met," is the largest art museum in the United States. It would take days to see everything. Personal favourites include the weapons and armor hall, the indoor garden pavilions, the costume institute and the Egyptian section, though everything in here is pretty special.

The High Line is a 1.45-mile-long elevated linear park, greenway and rail trail. It was created on a former New York Central Railroad spur on the west side of Manhattan in New York City. A great example of New York's creativity and resourceful use of its limited space. Plus it's close to the Whitney and they have a lot of arts events/installations up there.
