Klimt – Neue Gallery – New York

October 16, 2006

The new Klimt painting is not the only reason to see Neue Gallery (86street and 5th avenue, NYC). The overall collection has gotten only better since the museum opened a few years ago.

Check the gallery hours in advance http://www.neuegalerie.org/enter.html – the place is often closed or filled with busloads of tour groups. Cafe Sabarsky on the 1st floor is a must, but pick the hours carefully. There is often a bigger line to get into the cafe, than into the museum. If you come during rain, the gallery staff will politely ask you to check your umbrella and you will be standing in line coming and going. The gallery does not welcome children under 16. Still, if you have a spare hour it is always worth a visit.

    I visited the gallery for the first time this weekend and found it fascinating and the Cafe Sabarsky delicious…We had breakfast and it was wonderful,not crowded at all. Wonderful retreat on the UES….Are there any catalogues available??

    The Gallery sells catalogues in its on-premises art/gift store. Their books are actually harder to find on the Web.
