    I'd hit the met museums new galleries, they have a very good new islamic gallery, and a relativly new (2-3 years) greek and roman gallery. there is also an exhibit on chinese opera that is still going on, I believe. aside from that, the Nue gallery, a german art museum is great. have fun

    go walk the highline and then grab a glass of wine and a snack at the bar a place like Colicchio or Del Posto (or even Morimoto).
