We are back in the US after having spent nearly two years living in Vienna. There we often visited the Belvedere to enjoy its stunning collection of paintings by Gustav Klimt, whose work we greatly admired. But there are Klimt paintings, including the masterpiece "Woman in Gold," that can only be seen here, for reasons having to do with the... More

Located in a beautiful 1914 landmark mansion on Museum Mile, the Neue Galerie is well worth a visit. The entrance fee is a little on the expensive side (there is reduced admission for seniors and students) but comes with a free audiotour. The museum is devoted to early twentieth century German and Austrian art and design. There are frequent special... More

Wonderful small private museum. $20 entry with free audio. Small lines outside but they move quickly. There were plenty of free street parking "Sunday only" around the Guggenheim Museum a few blocks north, but we arrived just before opening. The third floor was open, with a fantastic exhibit of the works of the Russian artist Alexie Jawlensky. We came for... More

Neue Galerie is one of my favorite museums in NYC. Beautiful building (prior Vanderbilt home), excellent cafe to have breakfast before the 11 am museum opening -- austrian/german fare which matches the type of art. Free audio tour is a must -- it adds so much depth and interest to what you're viewing, and you can listen as you see... More

Neue Galerie has earned, for years, the reputation of one of the best small museums in the city. It focuses mostly on German expressionists and its Klimt collection, including the Lady in Gold, known to millions due to the fascinating story of the art recovery , a subject of a book story and a film. Right now (February 2017) it... More

I visit Neue Galerie when I can for I like the former mansion it is housed in. The pictures are well showcased in the high-ceilinged and historical rooms of the house. The pictures themselves are an acquired taste - Expressionist German and Austrian art from the early 20th century - but I do like seeing various types of modern art... More

What a great small museum. There are a number of Klimp paintings with the Woman in Gold being the highlight!

This is a smaller, boutique museum, but it really was one of my favorites I have seen. There was a line outside of about 20 people when we walked up, so they were only allowing a few people in at a time. However, it seemed we only waited for about 10 minutes, so it didn't take long for us to... More

We visited this museum near the end of the special Klimt Exhibit - which, of course, was stunning. AND I'd come back again to see what they have next. It's not a large museum so don't be surprised if there's a line outside to get in - the lobby is about the size of a small living room. But they... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
