The Whitney is offering free admission on Saturday, but only to its lucky neighbors

Do you live in Chelsea, the West Village, Soho and other neighborhoods adjacent to the Meatpacking District? Wow, you must be able to afford a lot of rent. But maybe you'd like your pocketbook to get a break. If so, this coming Saturday is your lucky day: In honor of its first anniversary in its Meatpacking District home, the Whitney Museum will be offering free admissions to residents of the 10011, 10012, 10013 and 10014 zip codes, which includes the aforementioned neighborhoods and more. Tickets to "Neighbor's Day" as the Whitney calls it, will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at According to museum, it's all a big thank you for being welcomed "so warmly" to the area. (And not to sound too cynical, but also a chance, perhaps, to sell memberships to presumably affluent New Yorkers?) Anyway you lucky bastards, enjoy. As for the rest of you living in Brooklyn and other parts of the Five Boroughs, fuggedaboudit.
