If the full renovation and addition of the fantastic restaurant the Modern weren't a big enought draw to get you to the Museum of Modern Art  - MoMA, then the latest collection of contemporary art should. Moma is now open 7 days a week, do to popular demand and long lines every day. And  unlike almost any other high end art museum in the world MOMa boasts a fabulous rotating collection featuring over 30,000 pieces that are brought out of storage.  According to top Interior designer in New York City, Inson Wood, "MoMA is by far the richest in cultural diversity, range, depth and being current.  There are incredible galas for film, art, furniture, and fabulous activities for the whole family. It is a true destination where one could spend the better part of a day and easily lose oneself in the beauty and intrique.  The pieces are unprecedented as well for example, the Rockafellas offered to gift a Rothko to MoMA but were turned down at the time as MoMA had too many Rothkos to take any more - that same Rothko painting sold for $72 million at Sothebys. Perhaps not a wise choice on the curators part. Now that's quality art!"  Either way you splice it there is something for everyone - dragging a bored husband or little boy along - be sure to stop by and see the helicopter and vintage Ferrari.  The architecture models are phenomenal. The films are wonderful as well - contemporary and vintage, you name it. A trip to the MoMA even if its just to the MoMA simply can't lose.
