The Museum of Modern Art in New York City reopens Saturday after a three-and-a-half year, $425 million expansion and renovation. The 630,000-square-foot museum is now home to spaces such as The Modern restaurant by New York restaurateur Danny Meyer, with a 64-seat private dining room, and the 21,400-square-foot Abby D. Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden. "It's a meeting planner's dream," said Cristyne Nicholas, president and CEO of NYC & Company, the city's convention and visitors bureau.
