An afternoon at MOMA

I could spend a whole day in the Museum of Modern Art. When I stopped by on a recent trip to New York, I unfortunately was on a tight schedule. I arrived on a crowded Saturday afternoon. I was fairly certain that many were visiting for the same reason I was – to escape the blizzard outside. Since I only had about two hours to spare, I headed straight to the fourth and fifth floors. These floors house the cream of the crop in my opinion. From Picasso to Warhol to Kahlo, here are my ten MOMA must-sees.
