Last week I took a trip to New York City to discover they're best in food and art. Well, to say the least, New York is full of both! Firstly, they're numerous art galleries, both large and small, are exciting places to discover the latest in art, or rediscover old favourites.
My favourite gallery/museum in New York is hands down the Brooklyn Museum of Art. It compares in size to that of the Metropolitan Art gallery, but has an even better layout. Their contempory art pieces are exciting and whimsical and bountiful. My recommendations for anyone visiting the big apple would be the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Neue Galerie (wonderful selection of Austrian and German art. Can you say Klimt?) and certainly the MET. Chelsea is full of wonderful little galleries, which are a host of new comers and budding artist alike.
A must for anyone visiting New York City, is to dine on some good Matzoball soup, pastrami, and 'slaw. My top pick is Lanksy's on Colombus Avenue. Many suggest Katz' Deli, but personally I like the attentive service and atmosphere at Lanksy's. They waite staff are eager and helpful. The portions are HUGE. And the prices are great.
