The group will visit major comprehensive museums, galleries, and artist studios including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Chelsea, Uptown and SoHo galleries, and others. Visits will also be made to Grand Central Station, Ground Zero, Wall Street, the Brooklyn Bridge, and many other New York City landmarks.
