Four of us went to see "Art in the Age of Black Power", a visiting exhibit from the Tate in London, which sprawls on two floors and is almost too much to take in during a single visit. We were happy to rest and refresh...More
I went there just because I was the area, with no expectations at all. It is an amazing art museum - pay as you wnat - with a particular centre for feminist art which was the best surprise on my trip to New York.

We went in the week rather than a Saturday and even then we could only book a slot some 2 hours later. We went to other exhibits first then enjoyed the snack bar but there is a classy restaurant too.
