Concierge.com's insider take:
Between the Met and the Guggenheim sits the Neue Galerie, the most recent (2001) addition to Museum Mile. A former home of society grande dame Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt III, it displays a modest but focused collection of early 20th-century Austrian and German art and designEgon Schiele's disconcerting studies of male-female relationships; Gustav Klimt's dazzling first portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer, with its luminous patchwork of gold and silver; an elegantly simple table fan by Josef Hoffman. The museum's founders, Austrian art dealer Serge Sabarsky and cosmetics mogul Ronald Lauder, have put in a tiny design shop and Café Sabarsky, which evokes a Viennese café, in fitting with the theme (212-288-0665; kg-ny.com).
Closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
