At The Museum
by Jason Wiggins
The Goethe Institute is probably one of the smallest museums in New York. It's a converted townhouse right across the street from the Met, and the gallery is actually only a part of the institute's functions. There is also a library, book center and program center for people interested in German language and culture. It will only take about a half an hour to see this free gallery, so there's no reason not to take a look in if you're interested. The staff is friendly and willing to help answer any questions.
