RECOMMENDED: 50 best New York attractions

Housed in a distinctive Romanesque Revival building (a former public school), PS1 mounts cutting-edge shows and hosts an acclaimed international studio program. Artwork crops up in every corner, from the stairwells to the roof. PS1 became an affiliate of MoMA in 1999, and sometimes stages collaborative exhibitions. Reflecting the museum’s global outlook, it has focused in recent years on such luminaries as Janet Cardiff and Olafur Eliasson. It also hosts summer’s popular Saturday-afternoon party, Warm Up.

Best way to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. While there were a lot of installations that were closed down, I still enjoyed whatever art was there. I also just loved the general space and layout of the museum. There's a cute coffee shop on the main floor that looks as if you're in a high school classroom (brings you back). You can grab a good cup of coffee there before starting your trek around the building.

Write a review...Who knew that one stop into Queens there would be such a cool museum that could rival ones in the city and Brooklyn? Well, I guess a lot of people know, but it took me a while to finally make the pilgrimage and I'm glad I did. I love the fact that it's in a converted school.

I came for the Moma PS1 After Dark, which I would definitely recommend. There was an outdoor enclosed bar (bonus points), lots of seating and M. Wells Dinette stayed open late. Not your average Saturday night.
