Current exhibitions include A Beautiful Way to Go: New York's Green-Wood Cemetery, highlighting one of the most important public green spaces in 19th-century America, Stephen Burrows: When Fashion Danced, which provides a look into one of the 1970s’ “brightest stars,” in the words of the New York Times; Activist New York, which explores the social activism that has helped shape the city; and Making Room: New Models for Housing New Yorkers, which showcases design solutions such as a full-scale micro-studio apartment of only 325 square feet.
Museum of the City of New York
Located along the Museum Mile section of Fifth Avenue, the Museum of the City of New York chronicles local culture through an array of exhibitions, interactive programs, publications, and other media. Founded in 1923 and housed in a landmark building, the nonprofit museum hosts temporary exhibitions to complement extensive permanent collections. Hallways and gallery spaces invite guests inside to study historic maps, photographs of life and architecture, and artwork, as well as vintage displays gathering toys, fashion, and furniture—providing more insight into the city's rich character than the diary of Al Pacino. Docents and visiting artists aim to highlight the city's diversity and heritage through public programs and events, such as gallery tours and performances as well as symposiums and panels. A gift shop allows visitors to bring home a taste of the Big Apple via city-spirited books, clothing, posters, music, films, and handmade goods.
