To hear about his top spots in New York, Whitewall spoke to the sculptor Fitzhugh Karol, who is currently an artist-in-residence with The Brooklyn Home Company.

FAVORITE SPOT TO FIND INSPIRATION
I find being out on the water around NYC to be particularly inspiring. You see the city landscape, topography, and all the silhouettes from a new perspective—and get a sense of solitude in doing so. I love watching the barge and tugboat activity along the waterways, too.

Also, a sunny morning run or walk through Brooklyn's Prospect Park. Take an hour or two and get up Lookout Hill, out to the Peninsula on the lake, up to the Vale of Cashmere, and then head out via Grand Army Plaza.

BEST OFF-THE-BEATEN-PATH TO SEE ART
The Noguchi Museum
in Queens is the best museum in NYC. The collection of Isamu Noguchi's work is powerful and meditative. It's an intimate environment with a fantastic dialog between artwork and architecture. In addition to their collection, they produce occasional and very thoughtful shows with other artists.

BEST-KEPT SECRET IN NYC
Head out to Governor's Island on a warm weekday. There is always good public art programming out ther,e as well as the LMCC Arts Center. Afterward, get a table by the fireplace in the back of Tiny's and The Bar Upstairs in TriBeCa.

I also encourage folks to check out the northernmost street corner of Manhattan. There is a great restaurant up there called The Inwood Farm and the surrounding environment is really spectacular with the cliffs across Spuyten Duyvil Creek, the train trestle, and the elevated Henry Hudson Bridge. Fort Tryon Park nearby is very special, as well, and provides a great vantage point down to the river.
