The Whitney Museum of American Art has reopened after a lengthy renovation at the south end of the High Line next to the Meat Packing District in a building that covers nine floors and 220,000 square feet.  Along with a gorgeous view of the Hudson the building was designed by Italian architect Reno Piano, this upgrade of 20,500 square feet for two floors is double the previously allocated space for contemporary favorites such as Mark Rothko and Andy Warhol. The inaugural exhibit America Is Hard to See is on display until September 27, 2015, which features nearly 650 works dating back to 1900, all chosen from the permanent collection.

After a jammed packed morning of museum hopping in the rain, there is nothing like stopping into a cozy tea room with soothing music to find utter relaxation and have a thorough drying out. Laduree a French luxury bakery best known for their double-decker macarons was the perfect hide-a-way to enjoy a fresh pot of coffee along with a few tea sandwiches.
