New York’s Upper East Side welcomes The Met Breuer to its rich cultural scene

New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on the Upper East side has recently opened , a new space for visitors to view collections of 20th and 21st-century contemporary and modern art in connection with the full scope of the museum’s collection, adding another unmissable cultural experience to the area. The space has opened in a landmark building on Madison Avenue and 75th Street, is surrounded with cultural institutions, numerous restaurants and shops, and is just steps from Central Park, and eight established world class cultural institutions that constitute the famed Museum Mile (which runs along Fifth Avenue between East 82nd and East 105th Streets).

Renowned structures such as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum have been reiterating the Upper East Side as one of the most famous cultural neighbourhoods in the world for years now, and surely The Met Breuer will prove to be a necessary addition to that legacy.

The largest shopping district in North America and some of the city’s greatest international cuisines also dot the Upper East Side, them too constantly going through evolution to ensure this slice of New York will always be balancing continuity and change to keep things fresh for locals and visitors. Restaurants in the area include Daniel, famed namesake of Chef Daniel Boulud, Parisian eatery Orsay, and legendary brunch hotspot Sarabeth’s.
