Gothamist was there for the re-opening of The Noguchi Museum today in Long Island City. The Noguchi is definitely one of the city's greatest and least appreciated museums- a quiet, serene place to appreciate some great abstract modernist sculpture. The best part is the renovated rock garden. We relaxed on a bench while beautiful hipsters floated past, talking about modern art. Up on the second floor, there are a bunch of installations, and showcases of Noguchi's furniture and product design work- we took a few more pictures and put them in after the jump.
While you are in Long Island City, why not also check out the Socrates Sculpture Park, just down the block from the Noguchi, or PS1, which is about twenty minutes away on foot. More on LIC at LICweb and LICNYC.
