The new Whitney Museum is located in the (largely former) Meat Packing District of New York City's Manhattan. Gallery spaces designed by Renzo Piano are terrific. Several decks offer great views and (other than the price of museum admission) are free to enjoy, requiring no purchase of an expensive libation. Landscape (hardscape) details are lacking. Looks like $458 MM was not enough to cover the cost of adding some texture to the large sidewalk/ground level plaza, which appears to be designed to accommodate sea level rise.
