cool places in New York according to a visual artist


Latin American art

“Henrique Faria Fine Art is an excellent gallery to see Latin American art in New York.”


American classic

“Extremely small and private, the Noguchi Museum is installed in a building that once served as artist Isamo Noguchi’s studio in Queens.”

Cold treat

 “You can find the best ice cream in NY at Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream. Try the Black Coconut Ash.


Sunday at the park
