The Museum of the City of New York

Museum of the City of New York

The Museum of the City of New York focuses on the shaping of the city. Upon arriving, we were initially struck by the façade.  When we commented on this, a woman at the reception told us that the building was also used to host events and weddings.  Near 103rd street, the museum overlooks Central Park.  As it is not too big and offers several select exhibits, it is possible to really take the time to look and appreciate each one instead of feeling overwhelmed. The museum has paintings, photographs and a variety of objects that focus on major events that shaped the city’s history and offers a view of life in New York today and in the past.
