An Artful Afternoon Around the Whitney

All five senses will be inspired around the prestigious art museum.

Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood is a mecca for modern art, but its heart beats at the southern end of the High Line.

SEE: Groundbreaking Art at the Whitney Museum of American Art

Formed in 1930 as the country’s first museum dedicated to American art, the Renzo Piano–designed building is home to an unsurpassed collection of modern and contemporary creatives. The picturesque view from the upper terrace is also hard to resist. 99 Gansevoort Street (between Washington and West Streets)

EAT: Seasonal Sensations at Untitled

The Whitney’s ground floor is home to this culinary concept dedicated to vibrant, artful cooking. Chef Suzanne Cupps’s menu revolves around hyper-seasonal, global-inspired fine fare, but the cookies and milk dessert is a must-order every time. 99 Gansevoort Street (between Washington and West Streets)

SHOP: Bohemian Blowout at Artists & Fleas

Emerging creators and designers showcase their latest pieces at this always-bustling marketplace at the foot of Chelsea Market. One-of-a-kind jewelry, garb, accessories, and housewares are readily available, but only for a limited time. 88 Tenth Avenue (at West 15th Street)

DRINK: Updated Classics at Intersect by Lexus

Gourmands may come for the restaurant’s ever-evolving cuisine concepts, but libation lovers should take a seat inside the attached cocktail lounge where “mixology strategists” shake and stir in the middle of a 360-degree round bar. 412 West 14th Street (between Ninth Avenue and Washington Street)
