Opened in 2007, The Centre for Contemporary Art arose from an initiative of the Director Marcia Tucker, who unfortunately died a year before the opening. The idea is to promote art by linking it with all levels of society and culture. The New Museum of SANAA architects, has become a brilliant place for art and communication.
When the two towers of the World Trade Center collapsed in 2001, America changed. The 9/11 Memorial Museum shows the dramatic history of the terrorist attack and the heroic attempt of the New York Fire Department to save as many people as possible. The museum stands directly at Ground Zero, next to the two holes that mark the former World Trade Center. In the museum you can see huge steel parts from the destroyed twin towers, broken emergency vehicles of the fire department and other objects. On a guided tour, the stories behind the exhibits become even more moving.
The Whitney Museum stands at the Hudson River and at the southern end of the Highline. A special architect was selected for this special location, Renzo Piano. The Italian star architect has already built many famous museums, such as the Centre Pompidou, the Zentrum Paul Klee or the annex for the Art Institute of Chicago. Renzo Piano has designed a building that offers many views on the area and roof terraces. The Whitney Museum of American Art features art from the United States, mostly modern and contemporary works. In addition to the museum's magnificent collection, special exhibitions are organized.
The Brooklyn Museum is located on the northern edge of Prospect Park, with two subway stations nearby. The Brooklyn Museum offers a wide range of exhibits. The collection shows objects from Egypt, Asia, Europe, South America and of course North America. The quality of the objects can not compete with the Metropolitan Museum in Manhattan, but the Brooklyn Museum is not that crowded.
