Best Attractions & Activities: This multi-level museum in Midtown East displays cutting edge contemporary works, as well as pieces by modern masters Edward Hopper, Le Corbusier and Rene Magritte. Crowds can be intense, particularly for big-name installations and traveling exhibitions. Our strategy is to take the elevator to the top floor upon entering, and then work your way down, missing the masses who bottleneck on the ground floor. MoMA also has a Michelin-starred restaurant by New York City star chef Danny Meyer. Appropriately named The Modern, Meyer's award-winning eatery is largely credited with reinventing underwhelming museum fare with dishes like seared sweet potato gnocchi and cauliflower cooked in crab butter.
