You don’t want to miss The 33rd Annual Museum Mile Festival this year! One day a year, for the past 32 years, nine of the country’s finest museums, all ones that call Fifth Avenue home, collectively open their doors from 6pm – 9pm for free to New Yorkers and visitors for a mile-long block party and visual art celebration. This traffic-free, music- and art-filled celebration fills the street and sidewalks of Fifth Avenue from 82nd to 105th street, the mile now officially designated as Museum Mile. Over 50,000 visitors attend the festival annually. Neue Galerie New York kicks off the festival on the steps of its 1914 landmark building on 86th street at 5:45pm. For what to wear to the biggest block party in New York, we went shopping at Bloomindales and found these vibrant tops to pair with your favorite pair of jeans.
