On another recent flight, I read the latest issue of Delta’s Sky magazine, which contained an article by the editors of the magazine and 11 travel experts called “What We Love About New York.” One of the things (actually 4) they love is the unsung museums. Most people know about the Met, MoMA, and the Guggenheim, but fewer people are aware of some lesser-known museums:
– El Museo del Barrio on Fifth Avenue in Spanish Harlem, the only museum in New York City dedicated to Latino art and culture
– Tenement Museum on Orchard Street, which pays homage to the Lower East Side’s history as the home of many immigrants
– The Rubin Museum on 17th Street, housing an art collection from Tibet, Bhutan, Mongolia, India, and Nepal
– P.S. 1 on Jackson Avenue in Queens, which currently features the “Greater New York” exhibit.
In the opinion of the writers, the lesser-known museums of New York have a lot to offer, so it’s worth checking them out! More to come from their list…
Feel free to leave a comment, and please come back often – I write and post every day! And if you like what I have to say and how I say it, you’ll probably enjoy my novels as well. They’re listed below, and you can read more about them on my website, http://www.randolphmase.com. In the near future, I’ll have excerpts of my books that you can read, accessible through my site. Please check it out!
