We have a master Concierge staff at The Palace who is familiar with all the happenings around the Big Apple. This week our Chef Concierge Carolyn Innocenzi recommends the Museum of Modern Art, commonly known as MoMA, where you can enjoy 20th Century Masterpieces of Modern and Contemporary Art by Matisse, Picasso, and Van Gogh.
We love to send our guests to MoMA, as this treasure is within a five minute walk from the New York Palace Hotel. “I had the most delightful experience at MoMA last spring strolling through the sculpture garden,” says Innocenzi. “I felt that I was in a mystical and serene space, and I thoroughly enjoyed this quiet and beautiful time in Manhattan.”
MoMA is located on 53rd Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. Guests can enjoy strolling through MoMA’s sculpture garden or shopping in the MoMA Design and Book Store. They can also enjoy a superb dining experience either in The Bar Room or the more formal dining area of The Modern. There are also some lovely café options at MOMA, including Café 2 and Terrace 5. We suggest asking our Concierge to secure a reservation for you during your stay.
Your Palace Concierge can also arrange a private tour for you at MoMA. Visitors have the option to experience the museum along with a private tour of midtown or art created specifically for their interests.

We are pleased to share with you that MoMA is now open seven days per week. Two current exhibitions that we recommend are “Rain Room” and “Artists Choice,” both on view until July 28th.
Stay tuned for more New York activities that “The Palace Knows Best!”
