The Museum of the City of New York is at 1220 Fifth Avenue, where 103rd Street meets Fifth by the park. Four stops south on the 6 train.
The building dates from 1929, designed expressly for this collection after being displayed for 6 years in Gracie Mansion.
It is a “revival” Georgian Colonial, part of the Colonial Revival homage of the original Georgian heyday, 1720-1840.
On exhibit now through July 15, “The Greatest Grid”, the story of how Manhattan finally got organized north of 14th street.
Must love maps.
