Outside the Neue Gallery, on the Upper East Side

Neue Gallery, UES
Photo by myself at 86th Street and Fifth Avenue, on the Upper East Side.

A number of yellow vehicles convened at an intersection outside the Neue Gallery, on the Upper East Side. I took this photo from the rear seat of a similar yellow vehicle ;-)

The Neue Gallery is a small gallery devoted to the decorative art of Germany and Austria from the turn of the 19th Century. They regularly exhibit drawings and paintings by Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka.

The museum is housed in a stunning townhouse built in 1914. The roof is covered with slate tiles and the round attic windows are clad with copper, against the weather.

I love this place. Seems like it's a well-kept secret.
