Concierge.com's insider take:

Towering over the Bowery like a beacon of all things shiny and forward-thinking, the New Museum is one of the city's most talked-about landmarks. Designed by Tokyo-based architects Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa in conjunction with Gensler New York, the building consists of six rectangular boxes covered in aluminum mesh and stacked precariously on top of one another like some giant children's toy. If the art doesn't always live up to the lofty exterior (the rotating contemporary exhibitions can be uneven), the great bookstore and panoramic roof terrace (open only on weekends) make it worth the visit, as do the ongoing "Night School" public seminars encompassing everything from 1970s seminal film screenings to performances from rockers such as Andrew WK.

Open Wednesdays, noon to 6 pm; Thursdays and Fridays, noon to 10 pm; Saturdays and Sundays, noon to 6 pm. Admission free on Thursdays from 7 to 10 pm.
