An amazing little/known spot of bliss in Manhattan. A place for which the word transcendent is meant.
One of the best collection of paintings depicting mighty Himalayas done by Roerich are exhibited here in a very homely place. Though not very big in size the gallery is full of mesmerizing works by the renowned artist. Art lovers, Himalaya lovers and mysticism lovers do not miss this tiny little collection in a miss if you wink place. Timings are narrow and entry is by voluntary donation. I am glad i got an opportunity to see this museum.
