About Museum of the City of New York
The Museum of the City of New York: Where the Past Informs the Future The Museum of the City of New York celebrates and interprets the city, educating the public about its distinctive character, especially its heritage of diversity, opportunity, and perpetual transformation. Founded in 1923 as a private, nonprofit corporation, the Museum connects the past, present, and future of New York City. It serves the people of New York and visitors from around the world through exhibitions, school and public programs, publications, and collections Now on view: Timescapes: A Multimedia Portrait of New York Ongoing Timescapes tells the epic story of New York City through a 25-minute, three-screen multimedia presentation. Combining state-of-the-art computer-animated maps with historic photo­graphs and images from The Museum’s collections, Timescapes traces the complex and exciting ways New York has grown and changed since its founding nearly 400 years ago. The American Style: Colonial Revival and the Modern Metropolis Through Oct 30 The American Style: Colonial Revival and the Modern Metropolis brings together extraordinary furniture, decorative objects, and photographs to survey, in New York City and beyond, the Colonial Revival movement in the realms of architecture and design. The exhibition covers the fertile period from the 1890s to the present, focusing on the years from 1900 to the 1930s, when New York City, through department stores, museums, and more, was the center for the style’s promotion nationwide. The Twin Towers and the City: Photographs by Camilo Jose Vergara Through Dec 4 To commemorate the tenth anniversary of the events of September 11, 2001 the Museum presents The Twin Towers and the City: Photographs by Camilo José Vergara and Paintings by Romain de Plas. MacArthur award-winning photographer Camilo Jose Vergara’s four decades-long study of the World Trade Center captures the Twin Towers’ place in the history of the city, their colossal presence on New York’s skyline, and their surprising gracefulness. Beginning in the 1970s, the photographer repeatedly turned his lens on the towers from vantage points throughout the metropolitan area. The resulting images, showing Brooklyn, New Jersey, the Bronx, or Manhattan in the foreground with the towers in the distance, are a startling and poetic reminder of how ubiquitous the towers were in the landscape of city life, even in spots far removed from Lower Manhattan. The exhibition will also highlight multiple sequences – many never before exhibited -- showing changing views from the 1970s, 1980s, 2001, and 2011. Together, they document the remaking of the city's skyline as well as surrounding neighborhoods, shedding new light on the ever-transforming metropolis. Kevin Roche: Architecture as Environment September 27 through January 22 Pritzker Prize-winner Kevin Roche is one of America's most influential and prolific architects, acclaimed for his skillful integration of man-made and natural environments. Drawing on material originally presented at the Yale School of Architecture, Kevin Roche: Architecture as Environment has been expanded to highlight Roche's contributions to the fabric of New York City, including the Ford Foundation building and more than four decades of master planning, design, renovations, and new additions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The exhibition features original drawings, models, photographs, and ephemera documenting Roche's career, along with extensive video presentations of projects and interviews with the architect. Directions: By bus: M1, M3, M4 or M106 to 104th Street, M2 to 101st Street. By subway: #6 Lexington Avenue train to 103rd Street, walk three blocks west, or #2 or #3 train to Central Park North/110th Street, walk one block east to Fifth Avenue, then south to 103rd Street.
