Overview

Journeying to the New York City borough of Queens is a much easier and more pleasant experience than the average Manhattanite would imagine. With the temporary relocation of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, to its new quarters at the old Swingline staple factory, the trip becomes a necessity for any art lover. But how do you get there? Do you take the Concord? A ferry boat? Can you walk? And how will you know when you're there? Fear these travels not—William Wegman and the ever ominous, sensitive, brooding Chip, the youngest of Wegman's brood of weimaraners, are here to map out the way to MoMA QNS. Join Chip as he shuttles from Manhattan into Long Island City on the 7 train, alight from the subway with him at Queens Boulevard and 33rd Street, and stroll together along Queens Boulevard, "the Champs Elysée of Long Island City." Voilá, there you are at MoMA QNS, a long, striking, blue building, complete with 160,000 square feet of recently redesigned space for exhibition galleries, study centers, workshops, storage, offices and a cafe bookstore. Enjoy the trip!
