Hop over to fanciful highlights such as Sol LeWitt's Splotches, Whirls and Twirls on the Met's rooftop; the Guggenheim's equally colorful installation The Eye of the Storm by Daniel Buren; and the Jewish Museum's Wild Things: The Art of Maurice Sendak. For a more grounding tour, peruse Neue Galerie's Portraits of an Age: Photography in Germany and Austria, 1900-1938 and El Museo del Barrio's Mexico: The Revolution and Beyond, Photographs by Casasola 1900-1940. Once you tire of the galleries, there are plenty of open-air sights in the shape of street performers, self-promoting artists, and spectators on a Fifth Avenue open only to pedestrians.
