New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractionsâ€”and enough personalityâ€”to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
Founded in 1929, MoMA was the first museum devoted to the modern era. The New York Times has called its collection "the greatest collection of modern art in the world.” Highlights include Claude Monet's "Water Lilies," Vincent van Gogh's "The Starry Night" and Pablo Picasso's "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon." The Museum presents an active schedule of modern and contemporary art exhibitions, over 1,000 film screenings a year, and a wide range of educational programs, from artist talks to family workshops. On view now: "Abstract Expressionist New York," an impressive survey of mid-20th-century works by the likes of Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, Willem de Kooning and more.
