Bark Frameworks
21-24 44th Ave., Long Island City
This 40-year-old business founded by Jared Bark has made frames for some of the greatest artists of all time, including Jasper Johns, Ellsworth Kelly, and Robert Rauschenberg, to name a few. At Bark, the framers are more than happy to collaborate with the client to make exactly what you’re looking for. With so many years in the business, they have a vast catalog of styles, but can also create something completely unique for particular specifications.
MoMA PS1
22-25 Jackson Ave., Long Island City
Housed in a renovated public school, PS1 has been a beacon for contemporary art lovers since the 60s, though it officially only became part of MoMA in 2000. With the unerringly avant-garde Klaus Biesenbach as its director, PS1 has presented many groundbreaking shows including Francis Alÿs, Ari Marcopoulos, and Confetti System, a timely Mike Kelley retrospective shortly after his death, and the “Greater New York” series. In the summer, the Warm Up series—where great DJs play in the museum’s courtyard—draws a fun crowd. There's also an on-site cafeteria, M. Wells Dinette.
Doughnut Plant
Falchi Building, 31-00 47th Ave., Long Island City
For many years Mark Israel’s plain glazed doughnut recipe was enough to draw crowds to this Lower East Side foodie destination, but more recent additions, like Mexican churros, house-made jelly filled doughnuts, and cake doughnuts have made Doughnut Plant legitimately legendary. While you can find Doughnut Plant on the menus of many hotels and restaurants throughout NYC, there's also a location in the Chelsea Hotel, Brooklyn, and now Long Island City.
