This elegant addition to the city’s museum scene is devoted entirely to late-19th- and early-20th-century German and Austrian fine and decorative arts. Located in a renovated brick-and-limestone mansion that was built by the architects of the New York Public Library, this brainchild of the late art dealer Serge Sabarsky and cosmetics mogul Ronald S. Lauder has the largest concentration of works by Gustav Klimt (including his iconic Adele Bloch-Bauer I) and Egon Schiele outside Vienna. You’ll also find a bookstore, a chic (and expensive) design shop and the Old World–inspired Café Sabarsky, serving updated Austrian cuisine and ravishing Viennese pastries.

This place is housed in an old Vanderbilt house and is just the right size for someone like me, who only likes to spend and hour or two at a time in a museum. Also, I recently went to Vienna, and this museum has a very authentic Viennese cafe inside, perfect for when I'm missing the city's café culture.
I visit the Neue Galerie at least once a year to take a
step into Eastern Europe and the gorgeous world of it’s art. I could admire Klimt and Schiele for hours! The museum is incredibly elegant and the building's architecture is stunning, allowing the colors of the artwork to truly shine. Be sure to check out Café Sabarsky too. You’re
transported to Vienna immediately when entering the cafe. Enjoy the coffee and decadent desserts.
