I finally got to the New Museum's new location at 235 Bowery. The summer heat the city has been experiencing necessitated indoor activities this weekend and although I had been to the museum at its original location many times, I had not yet been to it's new (since 2007) space.
The visit was a perfect way to "beat the heat." The contemporary art museum is a manageable size, affordable, easy to maneuver through and has a staff of docents and gallery guards who are friendly and knowledgeable.
Start at the top floor (where the "art" on display is the view of NYC from the roof) and wind your way down through the lower floors where the exhibits are a melange of audio, video, floor, ceiling, wall and exhibition case installations.
