Beautiful museum. Extensive Andy Warhol exhibit. Very busy, but lines moved quickly. It was quicker to move around using the stairs than waiting for the elevators. Nice walk there on the Green Line.

Walking downtown on highline you basically end up at the Whitney. Don’t give it a miss. The building itself is extremely interesting. I suggest you go to the terrace on the top of the building and soak in the view and then walk down the...More

There was a great collection by Andy Warhol at The Whitney. The exhibition was great. There are works by other artists as well. It was a pleasure seeing the art, the staff was friendly. Great Sunday morning in NYC!

Great collection and exhibit! Tremendous variety of art. Saw it twice... first time was personally more enjoyable as it was less crowded. Went back with my daughter on a weekend and it was significantly more crowded... actually too crowded to truly appreciate. Worth seeing yet...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

We went on a Saturday and there weren't any significant lines then. I would imagine that it would be even better on a weekday.
