It was Abstract Expressionism that in the 1950s made New York the world capital of modern art, a distinction it has held in the decades since. So it's only appropriate that the Museum of Modern Art should pay tribute to the movement with a mammoth overview, "Abstract Expressionist New York.'' Through April 25 MoMA has given over its entire fourth floor, as well as other galleries, to some 300 artworks -- paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, photographs, films, and documentary materials -- by and about Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Franz Kline, David Smith, and the rest. 11 West 53d St., 212-708-9400, www.moma.org
