Want to learn more about our city’s rich history? Come along with FRIENDS for a special, after-hours private tour of the Museum of the City of New York’s upcoming new permanent exhibit, New York at Its Core. Featuring more than 400 objects and state-of-the-art interactive displays, the exhibit will trace the history of New York from a small Dutch village into one of the most prominent cities in the world. Held across three galleries, the exhibit is shaped by four themes that provide a lens for examining the character of the city: money, diversity, density, and creativity. Trace the stores of famous New York personalities such as Alexander Hamilton, Jane Jacobs, Jay-Z and more, while viewing rare objects such as Milton Glaser’s original concept sketch for the “I Heart New York” campaign. Space is limited on this exclusive tour, so be sure to register early!
