???????????????????????????????????????????????????

As its name suggests, the Museum of the City of New York is a celebration of, and meditation on, the city. New York’s history, culture, and many facets come alive in a staggering array of exhibits that have included Amsterdam/New Amsterdam: The Worlds of Henry Hudson, Robert Moses and the Modern City, America’s Mayor: John V. Lindsay and the Reinvention of New York, Joel Grey / A New York Life, The Greatest Grid: The Master Plan of Manhattan, 1811-2011, Designing Tomorrow: America’s World’s Fairs of the 1930’s, Palaces for the People: Guastavino and the Art of Structural Tile, and the current Activist New York. A veritable treasure trove of Gotham’s complexity and legacy!
