A trip to New York wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the New-York Historical Society with four centuries of history and art – plus the only Children’s History Museum in the area.
It hits the spot for anyone craving an offbeat (and often surprising) bite of the city’s culture easily digested in an hour or two. Quirky, smart, immersive and across the street from beautiful Central Park, it offers a rich taste of the city.
- New York Story is an 18-minute panoramic film experience in surround-sound on a 75-foot screen.
- Freedom Journey 1965: Photographs of the Selma to Montgomery March by Stephen Somerstein documents the quest for equality and social justice.
- You’ll see nine decades of theater history in The Art of Al Hirschfeld (May 22 – October 12, 2015) as you trace “The Line King’s” evolution, his life and career.
Hungry for more? Experience the casual elegance of Caffè Storico, which offers delicious Italian fare – then explore the store for unique NYC gifts.
