At Totally Rad: New York in the 80’s, paintings, sculptures, and works on paper highlight the New York artists who were the center of attention in the art world in the 80’s. Featured artists include Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Jeff Koons, Kenny Scharf, Julian Schnabel, Cindy Sherman, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, David Wojnarowicz, and more. Burger joint in the front, upscale lounge in the back, the menu at Pop Burger includes basics like 2 pop burgers for $5 for a quick fix or if your lounging, the likes of tuna tartar with soy truffle jus ($15). The Gaslight, a great hotspot bar in the meatpacking district, is dark and cozy while affordable for the area. If you don’t know Amy’s Bread, when you order a sandwich at a café or restaurant in the city, ask where they got the bread. There’s a good chance it’s from Amy’s because she’s one of the best bread makers in the city.
