All reviews contemporary art avant garde museum building multiple floors small museum museum staff great museum art pieces lower east side on display well worth the visit an amazing experience lowry rist pixel forest nyc
The exhibits address some important issues and seek to shock to hammer home the messages. If you are inclined towards the avant garde art movement then you will enjoy it here; if you prefer art that demonstrates skill and quality then stay away as you...More

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
