Pictures of Pictures

I'm embarrassed to admit I don't often take advantage of the cultural delights at my fingertips here in NYC. Fortunately, on occasion my father (who generally hates Manhattan) pressures me into seeing the NY sights with him. Recently we visited the High Line and the Museum of Modern Art.

I would recommend visiting the High Line when it's warm, and only when it's warm. There are no heated refuges along this glorified walking path. 

The MoMA, on the other hand, is a perfectly nice respite on a wintry day, even when there are crowds of tourists with the same idea. There's typically a long snake of a line in front of the museum, but the incredibly friendly staff will tell you you can simply purchase a ticket on your smartphone to avoid waiting any time at all. We did just that, and although we didn't plan ahead and get tickets to the Matisse cutout exhibit (the museum's current main attraction) we were able to view some of Matisse's other gorgeous works along with pieces by Modigliani, Monet, Picasso, Pollock, Van Gogh and many more. See some photos below.

And last, but not least... the bookshop at MoMA? An A+ attraction.
