NEW YORK —The Metropolitan Museum of Art announced today that its branch museum in Fort Tryon Park, The Cloisters, will reopen to the public on Tuesday, Nov. 6.
The Metropolitan Museum’s main building at Fifth Avenue and 82nd Street will continue to be open to the public on its regular schedule.
New York (CNN) — Dumpster-lined streets and sidewalks strewn with destroyed art hint at the damage Hurricane Sandy wreaked on New York’s most important art district last week; but as electricity slowly returns and flood waters recede, the impact of the “super storm” is still uncertain in New York’s downtown Chelsea neighborhood.
Broadway may be up and running, but lower Manhattan is still without power, which means many of the city’s art venues have been scrambling. Canceled performances, impromptu rehearsals and loss of revenue have plagued theaters and dance companies alike.
