"The Whitney Museum" Upper East Side Tip by MM212
Upper East Side, New York City: 17 reviews and 54 photos
Named after Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, an early 20th century sculptor and the founder of the museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art focuses on 20th century American art. It contains a very modern collection that sometimes is closer to being odd than modern! The museum building itself is an expression of modern art. It was designed in the 1960s by Marcel Breuer and is quite a contrast to the surrounding older architecture.
