My favorite museum due to its size, not too overwhelming! Great views and located in a beautiful park of the city, falling between the West Village and Meatpacking district. Lots of great places to eat and explore, I'd visit the Highline (outdoor park) afterwards! The Whitney is for American art,…
The Whitney Museum of American Art, known informally as the "Whitney", is an art museum in Manhattan. It was founded in 1930 by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, a wealthy and prominent American socialite and art patron after whom it is named. The Whitney focuses on 20th- and 21st-century American art.
The brand new Whitney sits in a Renzo Piano–designed building at the southern end of the High Line. The uptown Whitney decamped because of space constrictions, a situation that's now eased by its 200,000 square feet. Bonus: It's open until 10 p.m. on the weekends.

“The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. Saved from demolition by neighborhood residents and the City of New York, the High Line opened in 2009 as a hybrid public space where visitors experience nature, art, and design.”

“An institution. For all art lovers, this is a must! Again, I like that this museum is smaller in size so that it's not too overwhelming and doesn't take a long time! Book tickets in advance online so that you can select your time slot. ”

“A walk, peddle, or carriage ride through the crisscrossing pathways of Central Park is a must-do on anyone's New York City itinerary. In winter, you can even lace up your skates and glide across Wollman Rink. This huge park in the city center, a half-mile wide and 2.5 miles long, is one of the things that makes New York such a beautiful and livable city. Besides being a great place to experience a little nature, Central Park has many attractions within its borders, and most of them are free, making it one of the few cheap things to do in NYC. Some of the most popular places to visit include the Belvedere Castle, Strawberry Fields, the Central Park Zoo, and the Lake. If you are exploring the park on your own, start by picking up a map at one of the visitor centers and plot your routing.”
