Smack-dab in the middle of Museum Mile, these two blocks house quite a few cultural institutions – the most notable and noticeable being the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
Coming up here on the weekend to take pictures, there's no way not to look like a tourist. Practically everyone on the street can be found posing for or taking photos. And who can blame them? With the recent restoration (finished last year), the Guggenheim absolutely glows and makes for a great pic to send home.
There's not much I can say about the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building that hasn't already been said- except that I always enjoy how the stark, modern, rounded structure plays off the pure natural beauty of Central Park. There's such contrast in environments that you can't help but appreciate both.
