Whitney Museum

The most NYC way to beat summer heat is to pop into an art museum for the day. The Whitney Museum has extended hours until 10 pm this Friday and Saturday, so you definitely don't want to miss those late night tours. It's your last chance to see some of the summer's most celebrated exhibits, including Danny Lyon: Message to the Future and Stuart Davis: In Full Swing.
