What do you know about New York City? Whether you’ve read a guidebook or been here before, you’ll learn a lot about why the city is what it’s like nowadays, where it came from and where it’s going if you set 28 minutes apart to watch Timescapes, an excellent documentary shown at The Museum of the City of New York. It is the best introduction to the city you’re about to visit or have visited before. The museum also has permanent or temporary exhibits about this thriving city. It’s located on Fifth Avenue and 103rd Street. Right across the street, you’ll enjoy one of the most beautifully landscaped areas of Central Park.
The Museum of the City of New York is at the north end of the Museum Mile. If you would like a guide through the area, let us know.
