Description

Village Voice's Description

Highlights of this top-notch book collection include M. Lasek's 1960 illustrated children's classic This Is New York

; Stephen O'Connor's Orphan Trains

, documenting the more than 250,000 city children shipped to Midwestern homes; and Michael Henry Adams and Paul Rocheleau's Harlem Lost and Found

, a social and architectural history of the world-famous African American neighborhood. And while you're roaming the grand hallways, check out "Children at Risk: Protecting New York's Youth, 1653-2003," and think about donating to The New York Times

Neediest Cases campaign. It would make a great gift for the girl or guy who has everything.

    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.
