Inside the New Whitney

| 24 Apr 2015 | 02:02

The new Whitney Museum of American Art on Gansevoort Street opens to the public on May 1, with its sprawling views of the Hudson River on the west and the Manhattan cityscape to the east, which are themselves living works of art. With three terraces and an interactive installation on the building’s fifth-floor outdoor gallery—along with floor to ceiling windows throughout—there’s plenty of space in the building to soak in the scenery. The museum’s exhibition “America is Hard to See” takes over the museum through September, with more than 600 works from the Whitney’s permanent collection organized in digestible sections.
