Interesting modern building that stands out for being too thin, even by New York standards. Stayed for half an hour to visit their small but fascinating art gallery. Admission is free. The guy at the reception was pleasant and helpful.

The building is pretty unique and worth a visit if you are in this very central area of NYC. They have free exhibitions and the one currently going on about public housing politics in Vienna is very interesting. If you have an interest to learn about Austria or to see something off the beaten track I can only recommend it.

There was no one around that seemed officially associated with the gallery. Only someone from a local guard agency telling us to use the stairs not the elevator. We weren't invited to tour the building as others have suggested. But, we did see their gallery displays. Not the most gifted art but it caused some reactions from within and I... More

This is one skinny building, easy to miss if you're moving at a clip. But stop in and take the free tour. It's over-the-top cool, a world-class, first-class piece of architecture. And they're likely to have something going on - an art exhibit, a musical performance, maybe some films. We stumbled upon it on our way to MOMA - MOMA... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
