Tips from foursquare
On 11/9/11, I spoke at the grand re-opening of the New-York Historical Society Museum and Library following its three-year renovation.
The city’s oldest museum has an archive of more than 1.6 million pieces of art, including Hudson River School paintings and the entire collection of John James Audubon’s Birds of America watercolors.
The engaging, family-friendly exhibits and children’s museum offer a great way to connect with the history of New York. We like matching a morning visit here with an picnic in nearby Central Park.
Pay-what-you-wish admission on Fridays starting at 6pm
Check out the history of beer exhibit through end of August.
