Worth the Trip to the Bronx - Museum of the Arts

Even though there are more than enough sights in Manhattan to keep you occupied, you should take the time to travel to the Bronx Museum of the Arts.  It's a quick walk from the subway to the museum, so you don't need to worry about transportation.  You'll enjoy seeing the contemporary architecture of the building itself, when you first walk up to the museum.  Inside, you'll find a wonderful variety of art by Hispanic-American, Asian-American, and African-American artists.  You will enjoy spending a couple of hours wandering around the museum.  If you do some planning, you may be able to go to the Museum of the Arts during one of their events (like the film festival).  Regardless of when you visit the museum, you'll walk away with a new (or renewed) appreciation for different types of art.
