The Museum of Modern Art is located at 11 West 53rd Street between 5th and 6th Avenues. Known to be the most important modern art museum standing today, the Museum of Modern Art in New York was made possible through the efforts of the famous Rockefeller family, specifically Abby Aldrich Rockefeller. Some of the Museum’s most renowned art pieces include Dali's Persistence of Time, Monet's Water Lilies, Van Gogh’s Starry Night and many others, including some works by Picasso. The current building is designed according to the so-called International style that gained popularity in the 1930’s.
When the Museum of Modern Art building was inaugurated, President Roosevelt even gave the opening address via radio. In 2004, the Museum was enlarged to twice its capacity, enabling it to store and display even more modern masterpieces. The enlarged building encorporates the previously existing architecture with the new modern Japanese inspired design invisioned by Yoshio Taniguchi the well known architect. Another recent edition to the MoMA is a contemporary unique restaurant aptly named 'The Modern' opening out onto a newly created patio area designed by Taniguchi.
