Untitled, one of Basquiat’s major works from 1982, sold for 110 million dollars, is on display at the Brooklyn Museum . It is a singular masterpiece, the kind one can spend a couple of hours in front of, and is a bonus if you are lucky enough to score tickets for the Bowie retrospective.
Trains to Brooklyn pose a challenge on weekends, but there are copious rewards at the end of the tunnel.
Hit up MeMe’s Diner for a filling brunch. Start with the bagel babka and eggs with chili oil. After the show, walk over to the Brooklyn Library to score a slice of Salted Honey pie from Four and Twenty Blackbirds, sold in ready to go containers from the small cafe. Head over to Barboncino for some reasonably priced Neopolitan style pizza, or Glady’s for some Caribbean jerk or curried goat and drink specials.
Snag a seat at the long bar at Tooker Hall. Proper cocktails with friendly bartenders, who also provide skilled, balanced libations.
