Manhattanville has a new mini art district, and now that a huge coffee shop just opened across the street, you can truly make an afternoon of it.
Drop by the area this Saturday from 1pm to 4pm when Studio Museum 127–the Studio Museum in Harlem's temporary satellite space at 429 West 127th Street–hosts its Artist-in-Residence Open Studios.
Visitors can view the works-in-progress of the latest emerging artists championed by the museum, Allison Janae Hamilton, Tschabala Self, and Sable Elyse Smith. In June their finished work will head to MoMA PS1 for a show that's part of a multiyear partnership between the two museums.

There's two shows at neighboring gallery Gavin Brown's Enterprise to check out, too, including the nighttime landscape paintings of Cy Gavin. Gavin Brown's Enterprise first arrived in 2016, opening a multi-story space in an industrial building at 439 West 127th Street.
Wash it all down with a latte from Plowshares Coffee, which debuted last month, bringing java, pastries and more to a plant-filled 3,500-square-foot space at 1351 Amsterdam Avenue. For art fans, the timing couldn't be better.
