AOL Travel Editor’s Review

An architectural game changer? That’s one way of describing this Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building, which sits like an eloquent inverted coil on the periphery of Central Park on the Upper East Side. Built in 1959, the Guggenheim Museum set the standard for inspiring museum buildings, creating a new paradigm: that the building in which the art is viewed should be an artistic object in and of itself. So while the building is one of the chief attractions here, the great art inside just seems like a bonus. There are 700 works of art by over 300 artists, including Van Gogh, Kandinsky, Picasso, among others.
