Most New York City residents know about MoMA located in Midtown on the East Side. What many people fail to realize is there is a second location connected to one of New York City’s top museums, MoMA PS1 located in Long Island City. Long island City is just a quick half hour subway ride for our residents at The Sagamore. If you are looking indoors for something cultural, fun and different on a hot summer day, take a trip and see what they have to offer!
MoMA PS1 has ten different exhibitions currently on display. For a full list of current and upcoming shows, you can visit their website page which list them along with descriptions. There is plenty to enjoy for the day as it will take several hours if you are looking to see everything in the museum.
In addition to their exhibitions there are many programs and events. One of the biggest events of the summer is hosted by them, which is called MoMA PS1 Summer Warm Up. Bands, DJ’s and producers all come together for this series that is put on during the months of July and August. Every Saturday you can visit their courtyard and listen to a uniquely crafted mix of different artists for viewers’ enjoyment. Tickets are on sale now, and you can purchase them by going through their website.
