Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Autumn in New York is prime time for art, as galleries (around Chelsea, the Lower and Upper East Sides and Soho) and museums (the Guggenheim Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, etc.) shake off the summer doldrums and roll out their top art shows for fall. However, given the crisp air and cooler temperatures, the temptation is definitely there to skip a weekend of looking at art, and head out of town. Well, why not do both? You can, of course, and there are plenty of amazing shows to see just a few hours away, no matter which direction you take. We’ve rounded up the best exhibits in this handy guide of fall getaways from NYC, so what are you waiting for?
