Last weekend I was out with some friends and one of them, a fellow art aficionado, asked me what I thought of the new Whitney Museum downtown. Embarrassed, I told her I hadn’t been yet! I made a plan right then and there to visit the following weekend while my sister was in town. The 9 story, $422 million construction in the Meatpacking District opened this past May and houses 20th and 21st century American art. It’s pretty fabulous!
My plan was to wander around the top two floors for half an hour while taking photos, but I soon realized that my camera was more attracted to the amazing set of staircases and terraces on the east side of the museum, with the most gorgeous panorama views of Manhattan! This museum is built at the southern base of the Highline, which I photographed for my 30 minutes project last August. You can see the beautiful autumn leaves down there in some of the photos below, along with some of the interesting museum visitors and outdoor sculptures.
Psst! Now that you’ve taken in the view from the Meatpacking District with me, go check out Sophie James’ lovely 30 minutes from Scotland! Her beautiful photos make me dream of a life in the Scottish countryside…
