A Minnesota native offers 111 reasons to visit New York City – Minneapolis Star Tribune

Although she’s been a New Yorker for more than a decade, many Minnesotans will recognize Wendy Lubovich from her 13-year stint as a news anchor at KSTP-TV.

In her latest career, the Hibbing native has become an expert on New York’s museums, offering small-group tours via her company, Walk of Art (walk-of-art.com). Lubovich also spent a year researching and writing the just-published “111 Museums in New York That You Must Not Miss” (Emons, $19.90). The guidebook introduces readers to the well-known (the Metropolitan Museum of Art, aka the Met) and the obscure (National Museum of Mathematics, Self-Taught Genius Gallery), covering a far-flung range of subjects that include art, baseball, sex, gangsters, bonsai and maps.
