Remember when the news broke out that the Whitney Museum of American Art planned to add a second Whitney Museum site to New York's most happening (active) neighborhood for the visual arts and education? You got it. It's the downtown area we all adore: the Meatpacking District. Anyways, as I was walking through and enjoying the beautifully manicured Highline Park, I stopped and noticed the site that the establishment will settle in. To describe in simple words, it is an old and abandoned factory waiting for its makeover. Moreover, the size is quite enormous and will soon-to-be one of downtown New York's most expensive and desirable commercial space. Yes, there are still extra grooming to be done there, but once the 50,000 square feet gallery space designed by Renzo Piano takes off, the area would be exciting, bold and hipper than ever.
