WHAT TO DO IN NYC WHEN YOU CAN'T FEEL YOUR FACE
You survived the “bomb cyclone” by staying in your apartment, watching movies and ordering by CHLOE. to-go…congrats. Hibernating is totally fun, but after a few too many hours on the couch, the stir-crazy starts to set-in. Not to be the bearer of bad news, but the NYC weekend forecast is looking errrrr…. let’s just say the temps are still droppin’ (but not like it’s hot). New Yorker’s are used to braving the cold (car services get $$$, and the subway can only take you so far), but 19° temps has us wondering, what can we do for FUN under these conditions?!? We’ve round up some museum exhibits to avoid the cold for the weekend ahead. Take THAT, bomb cyclone!
Exhibit dates vary.
One of the oldest and largest art museums in the United States resides in BROOKLYN, NEW YORK #represent. Despite its deep roots (circa 1832), this museum is anything but old and boring. The Brooklyn Museum hosts some of the coolest exhibits in the city. Don’t miss Judy Chicago’s exhibit on feminist art, and Infinite Blue, which displays visual poetry throughout the centuries in the color blue. Got cold blood? Check out the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, right next door.

Having used all different mediums across his 60 year career, this exhibit at The Met is grand retrospective of the artist’s best achievements, from video to modernist abstraction to jewel-toned landscapes. An world-renowned icon, we particularly love the nostalgic attitude of his landscape and genre artwork.

For those of you who think any activity taking place off the island of Manhattan is bound to be a “trendy” adventure, you are right. MOMA PS1 is located in Long Island City, and is The Museum of Modern Art’s artsy kid sister (the admission is also $15 cheaper…thank you, Queens). The contemporary art space was once an abandoned building, so it feels more relaxed (and dare we say, interesting) than a traditional museum. With many rooms and passageways, have fun winding your way through the multiple exhibitions. Don’t miss the study of the LBD and classic white T-shirt in “Items: Is Fashion Modern?” and Cathy Wilkes’s 3D figures and abstract domestic lifestyle installations.
