DISCOVERIES

BROOKLYN FLEA
VARIOUS LOCATIONS AROUND BROOKLYN
Brooklyn-Flea

This Brooklyn-based collective started out humbly enough in 2008 with a Saturday market of vintage wares and a handful of food stalls in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene neighborhood. The simple, yet brilliant, pop-up food and shopping concept caught on, and some version of the Brooklyn Flea is now hosted in indoor and open-air spots every weekend. There are highly-selective handmade and antiques markets, record fairs and the sprawling food-focused Smorgasburg.

GOVERNOR’S ISLAND
New York
Governor’s-Island

A short ferry ride from both lower Manhattan and Brooklyn is a former United States Military base that has been revived as a 172-acre island park. Rent bikes (or bring them on the ferry) to easily pedal around the island. Stop off at abandoned military barracks, view visiting exhibits in the Victorian Captain’s houses-turned-galleries, or swing in a skyline gazing hammock. Weekend festivals— the Jazz Age Lawn Party, live concerts, the kite festival—add a spirited carnival atmosphere. Open to visitors late May to late September.

ISAMU NOGUCHI MUSEUM
9-01 33RD ROAD AT VERNON BOULEVARD, QUEENS
Isamu-Noguchi-Museum

In a sleepy stretch of Long Island City, Queens, resides the Zen-inducing Isamu Noguchi Museum. An otherwise non-descript brick building opens up to reveal a tranquil sculpture garden and two floors dedicated primarily to the contemporary works by the Japanese-American sculptor, and small scale exhibitions by other artists. Wander one block to the neighboring Socrates Sculpture Park, a river-facing garden and outdoor museum of sculpture.

LINCOLN CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS
COLUMBUS TO AMSTERDAM AVENUES, BETWEEN WEST 60TH TO WEST 62ND STREETS
Lincoln-Center-for-the-Performing-Arts

This Upper West Side institution is a comprehensive arts complex for opera, jazz, experimental concerts, dance, film and theater. Spend a night beneath the stars with a free outdoor opera screening or splurge for a performance by the sublime New York City Ballet or world-class New York Philharmonic Orchestra.

MADISON SQUARE PARK
FIFTH AVENUE AND BROADWAY AT 23RD STREET
Madison-Square-Park

Stand in line with locals on their lunch break for a juicy burger and a thick milkshakes from the original Shake Shack. Grab a bench or patch of lawn in this oasis of green where large-scale public artwork changes regularly. In summer months the park hosts concerts and lively food fairs. Just across from the park, wander through Eataly, Mario Batali’s Italian gourmet food and housewares market with a rooftop beer and wine garden.

THE HIGHLINE
GANSEVOORT TO WEST 34TH STREETS
The-Highline

Birch trees and native grasses spring from between the rails of an elevated train track that rises above west side city streets affording enviable Hudson River views. Nature mingles with industry along a historic railroad track turned innovative elevated park. A monument to the history of Manhattan’s West Side, between grassy landscaped plots and original metalwork where native plants grow wild, long wooden planks form a nearly two mile walkway through the Meatpacking and Chelsea neighborhoods.

THE MET BREUER
945 MADISON AVENUE
The-Met-Breuer

Bauhaus-trained architect Marcel Breuer designed this landmark buidling which was the longtime home of the Whitney Museum before it moved to its glassy downtown space. Continuing as a venue for ground-breaking contemporary work, it is now the exhibition space for 20th and 21st century art from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s modern collection.

WHITNEY MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART
99 GANSEVOORT STREET
Whitney-Museum-of-American-Art

Contemporary American art spanning the 20th century to the present day fills the Whitney, founded by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney in 1930. Situated between the High Line and the Hudson River, the impressive collection is housed in a striking glass and concrete building by Renzo Piano. Dynamic exhibits are constantly in rotation, and every two years the museum presents a Biennial, an acclaimed survey of contemporary American art.
