Situated in its stately, hallowed palace on Fifth Avenue, the Metropolitan Museum of Art is the crown jewel of Museum Mile. And, like everything else in this city, it strictly adheres to a bigger-is-better mantra. The museum dates back to 1866, and houses masterpieces by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Van Gogh, Degas, and Jackson Pollock among countless other big names, as well as an extensive collection of ancient art. Situated right on Central Park, it is one of the few places equally appealing to tourists and locals alike. If you become overwhelmed—which is likely—by the sheer expansiveness of the collections, take a stroll in the park or over to Lexington Ave. for some cheap eats on the Upper East Side.
