Overview

Arranged in a Georgian Colonial Revival–style working at the top finish of Museum Mile, this nearby historical center spotlights exclusively on New York City’s past, present, and future. Try not to miss the 28-minute film Timescapes (on the ground floor), which graphs NYC’s development from a small general store for Native Americans to blossoming city.

One of the gallery’s stars attractions is the 12-room house dollhouse manufactured via Carrie Stettheimer more than 25 years at the turn of the twentieth century – packed with little works of art (counting miniatures of pieces by Marcel Duchamp and Gaston Lachaise); while magnificent brief mainstream society displays feature both notable and contemporary issues and achievements (cycling in NYC, Stonewall riots, Jackie Robinson). The very much supplied blessing shop is an incredible spot to get NYC-themed books, endowments, and gifts, and the free summer square gatherings – known as Uptown Bounce – are a DJ-powered great time (check the timetable at www.mcny.org/bob).
