Museum hopping in New York

This weekend was gorgeous, but since Saturday started off a little bit rainy, Matt and I decided to catch up on all the museums we've been neglecting this summer. We started at the Guggenheim, then worked our way down the East Side, hitting the Met, the Whitney, and finally, the MoMA. Overwhelming? It could have been, but we zeroed in on the exhibits we wanted to see most, then hopped over to the next!

Here, the exhibits you should drop everything to see:

- The Guggenheim: James Turrell's first exhibition in a New York museum is all about light.
- The Met: The Punk installation here is an impressive follow-up to the Alexander McQueen exhibit from 2011.
- The Whitney: Edward Hopper's iconic "Nighthawk" is on display—along with 9 of the charcoal sketches he used to create the final piece.
- The MoMA: Contemporary artists brilliantly experiment with sound and architecture.
