I have to say Warhol is not my favorite but it was awesome to see so much of his work in one place. Many of his well known pieces are there. As well as lesser known pieces, sketches, videos and more. I never realized how...More

I just adored the Andy Warhol exhibit at the Whitney. So well organized, lots of great gifts in the Shop and wonderful docents as well. Love the new venue in the heart of the Meatpacking District. Really fabulous!

I really never understood Warhol until I saw this exhibit. The retrospective was extremely well done with pieces of his early works all the way up to his final piece. The paintings are spread over three floors, I would say you need about two to...More

Great retrospective exhibit of Warhol's life works tracing his start in the late 1950s until his death in 1987. Many of his most iconic works are displayed. Well worth getting your tickets in advance online, beat the ticket line and crowds at the door.

If you are a fan of Warhol, you would enjoy this exhibition. His artwork is spread over 3 floors. The 1st floor showcases a number of portraits of well-known celebrities and lesser known subjects (and self-portraits), highlighting Warhol's breadth of portraiture subjects. This display is...More

Check for traveling exhibits and try and time your visit accordingly. Purcahse tickets in advance if you can. Since 2014 located on Gansevoort Street. Needed more space.

You forget how influential Andy Warhol was on American culture. This retrospective, the first since his death three decades ago, is comprehensive and compelling. Not surprisingly, it's also quite crowded, especially on weekends. Our solution to waiting on line was to buy a year's membership...More

Whitney is special and intriguing. The Andy Warhol exhibition is enchanting. Somehow I thought the museum would offer a larger selection and variety but nonetheless it is still very much recommended.

I found this museum nice but subpar for contemporaneous art, especially compared with the MoMA or the Pompidou center in Paris. The collections are small and the one on Warhol was not very well organized, spreading other three levels without clear organization. However the staff...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

We went on a Saturday and there weren't any significant lines then. I would imagine that it would be even better on a weekday.
