Chelsea Art Galleries: There’s a power row of galleries you should visit on West 21st Street (between 10th & 11th Aves). Here you’ll find: Gagosian (w/ Monet show until June 26) Barbara Gladstone, Paula Cooper, 303 Gallery and Yvon Lambert. Together, they’re one giant contemporary art museum.
High Line Park: After the galleries, enter this park at 20th St and 10th Ave (elevator @ 16th St & 10th Ave). High Line is a beautiful retrofitted railroad that winds thru New York’s westside neighborhoods.
Enough with the art and nature! At the south end of the High Line is the Standard Hotel’s impossibly popular new Biergarten. A great place to catch a World Cup match. Go Team. And here’s a map for you:
