New York City is a world capital for the arts, fashion, entertainment, theater, and just about everything else related to culture. Residents of the ARO no-fee rentals in NYC’s Midtown West neighborhood are just a short distance from many of the most celebrated cultural institutions in Manhattan, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Arts and Design, Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall, and Theatre Row.
No list of New York’s marquee cultural institutions would be complete without the Museum of Modern Art. MoMA is known the world over as one of the most important museums in the world and a driving force in modern and contemporary art. The museum extends across three floors, includes a sculpture garden, and houses more than 150,000 individual works, in addition to its collection of nearly 22,000 films. Art critics and patrons have long considered MoMA’s collections to represent the finest of modern Western works, with masterpieces like Henri Matisse’s “Dance (I),” Vincent van Gogh’s “The Starry Night,” Frida Kahlo’s “Self-Portrait With Cropped Hair,” and Andy Warhol’s “Campbell’s Soup Cans.” MoMA is also home to the Department of Architecture and Design — the first museum department of its kind in the world — which holds 28,000 works, including architectural models, photographs, drawings, and more from famed architects and designers such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Isamu Noguchi.
Fans of all things design should head to the Museum of Arts and Design at Two Columbus Circle. Offering four floors of gallery space covering 54,000 square feet, the museum is known for featuring works by both well-known and emerging artists. Upcoming exhibitions include “Garmenting: Costume as Contemporary Art,” which will present “the first global survey exhibition dedicated to the use of clothing as a medium of visual art.” The museum is also home to the Center for the Study of Jewelry and an Education Center that provides access to an incredible variety of workshops, classes, and performances.
There are few buildings that evoke the history and cultural heritage of Manhattan like Carnegie Hall. Built by and named for Andrew Carnegie, it is synonymous with excellence in classical and popular music. The hall includes three auditoriums — the majestic, five-story Stern Auditorium, Zankel Hall, and Weill Recital Hall — where some of the greatest names of 20th-century music have performed, including Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, The Beatles, and conductors Leonard Bernstein and Arturo Toscanini. Upcoming events include performances by the New York Pops, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, and Regina Spektor.
Finally, Midtown West is defined by its theater scene — especially its Theatre Row. This designated row of seven Off-Broadway theaters ranged along 42nd Street from Ninth Avenue to the Hudson River, including famed stages such as the Playwrights Horizons, Stage 42, and the Laurie Beechman Theatre. Upcoming and ongoing shows include “This Space Between Us” written by Peter Gil-Sheridan and directed by Jonathan Silverstein, “The Baker’s Wife” by Stephen Schwartz and family-friendly “Dory Fantasmagory” by Russ Kaplan and Sara Wordsworth.
