Sutton Place Museums and Art Galleries

There’s nothing quite like Sotheby’s—it is one of the world’s largest brokers of fine and decorative art, as well as jewelry and collectibles just north of Sutton Place on the Upper East Side. Art lovers are always welcome to visit the numerous pre-sale exhibitions and gallery shows, which are free and open to the public. Stay for coffee, pastries, or lunch at the in-house branch of Sant Ambroeus, and be sure to visit the Sotheby’s Wine Store with a selection ranging from $15 to $15,000 bottles. For museums, it doesn't get much better than MoMa (The Museum of Modern Art), housing works by Van Gogh, Rothko, Warhol, and others, while fans of Asian art will want to save time for the Japan Society, which hosts art exhibitions, dance, theater, film, sake tastings, and more.
