You've got to wonder where they got the staff from at Whitney. You'd think for entrance fee of $12 they may employ some pretty decent staff, staff who fit in with the calm and reverent atmosphere of the museum. Instead, I got barked at from across the room when I stepped on the line before a sculpture -- nice to let everybody else on that floor know I was in error -- and I barked when the place closed 15 minutes early. I finally got fed up when I went to get my jacket after I was obliged the several loud women screaming at paying customers to get out of the place. There were three staff at the desk - one other customer was being served by a kind and gentle older man, but I had to wait for a woman to stop her conversation with the other. She looked at my token and she told me to get in line for the older man. Bloody jobsworth, I'm the only person waiting and she couldn't serve me! No wonder she had such a fat arse.
My recommendation - go early to see the art - maybe the staff won't be so rude.
