The Whitney was was founded in 1931 by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney and was located in Greenwich Village. The museum moved to its present location, at the southern entrance to the High Line in New York’s Meatpacking District in 2015. The Renzo Piano designed building is a custom built 8 story, column free 200,000 square feet building that provides not just an impressive space to display the museum’s collection, but a place with fantastic views of the the Hudson and Greenwich Village.

Exhibitions range from historical surveys and in-depth retrospectives of major twentieth-century and contemporary artists to group shows introducing young or relatively unknown artists to a larger public. The Whitney also presents acclaimed exhibitions of film and video, architecture, photography, and new media, and there are often interactive works on display that visitors can interact with. Some of the artists represented in the collection include Jackson Pollock, Man Ray, Cy Twombly, Keith Haring and Edward Hopper.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
