Why locals recommend it
The MoMA’s sister museum for contemporary art has a must-see installation by James Turrell, an artist who is interested in the mind’s theta state. It’s a room of changing colors meant to trigger brain-wave entrainment into deep relaxation. About 30 people are allowed in at one time, and there are wooden benches all around to relax on. There is an open window in the room, so if the weather is bad don’t come out here to see it. They’ll close the installation.

the contemporary art outpost of the MoMA! PS1 has parties called Warm-Ups every Saturday in the summertime and often host live performance art on Sundays. Always quite cutting edge and provocative, the space itself is quite cool, I believe it is the oldest modern public school building in NYC.
