Vatican City may have breathtaking, storied art, beautiful buildings and lovely weather, but New York is the city where anything goes—and usually does. Gotham is renowned for its open-mindedness and spirit of rebellion (check out our oral history of the NYC Pride March for evidence), and Pope Francis has a rep as being something of a liberal papal trailblazer, so his visit to NYC in September strikes us as a match made in heaven. We've plotted a walk on the wild side that includes a visit to feminist art touchstone "The Dinner Party" at the Brooklyn Museum plus a delightful communal brunch.
