I travel way too much for work. One of the few perks, is spending a lone day in a beautiful city.
One of my trips, I spent the day at the Guggenheim.
Its one of those iconic places that defines New York. The architecture, the people, and the art. In the few hours I was there, I heard very little English, hanging out with people from all over the world. The people watching was awesome.
And, the art was even better. Best way to navigate is their app. I warn you. Download the app before you leave home. Its huge. I made the mistake of downloading it while waiting in line to buy my ticket. It took almost an hour to download. But, once I did, the museum became very easy to move through and see the piece that are most important to me.
Most museums in New York are closed on Monday, with the exception of the Guggenheim. Which means it is packed. Given how busy it was on the Sunday I visited, I’d avoid Mondays at the Guggenheim at all costs.
Start at the top. Not only will you get to take in the amazing architecture, but you’ll work your way down opposite the crowds.
After you are full-up on culture, cross the street into Central Park. Enter the park around 90th St and walk the upper walkway along the reservoir. Cross over at the 85th St Traverse and head to the Upper West Side. I found a great little Italian osteria…and a glass of wine.
Osteria Cotta, 513 Columbus Ave, just south of 85th St.
