Whitney Museum of American Art
UPPER EAST SIDE. Founded by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney in 1931, the Whitney is one of the most well-known contemporary art museums in the country. American works from 1900 to the present abundantly prove the talents of Edward Hopper, Alexander Calder, Georgia O’Keeffe, Louise Nevelson, Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock, Claes Oldenburg, Louise Bourgeois, Jasper Johns, and Cy Twombly. The museum’s present home is a Marcel Breuer-designed building originally constructed in 1966. No trip to the Whitney would be complete without a meal at award-winning Sarabeth’s restaurant.
