Beautiful New York

A Celebration of the City

It Happened Today in New York City

01-11-mcnyOn January 11, 1932, the Museum of the City of New York, having been located in the Gracie Mansion where space was limited, reopened in its new location at 103rd Street and Fifth Avenue. At the north end of a stretch now known as Museum Mile, the Georgian Building is flanked by El Museo Del Barrio on one side and the Academy of Medicine on the other. With statues of great New Yorkers Alexander Hamilton and DeWitt Clinton in niches on its façade, the Museum of the City of New York has looked gloriously inward upon its city ever since.
