The Whitney
99 Gansevoort, Meatpacking Disrict
The Whitney—a long-time doyenne on the UES shut its doors and moved to the Meatpacking District, where it sits in a Renzo Piano-designed building at the Southern end of the Highline. The Whitney decamped because of space constrictions up town, a situation that's now eased by its 200,000 square feet. (The Metropolitan Museum of Art is supposedly taking over The Whitney's previous Marcel Breuer's design home at Madison and 75th.) Bonus: It's open until 10pm on the weekends.
