Five years in the making, New York at Its Core presents the compelling story of New York’s rise from a striving Dutch village to today’s “Capital of the World,” a preeminent global city now facing the future in a changing world. More than 400 objects, many from the Museum’s rich collection, will be complemented by state-of-the-art interactives, inviting visitors to fully engage with the rich stories presented in New York at Its Core. Occupying the entire first floor in three interactive galleries – Port City, 1609-1898, World City, 1898-2012, and Future City Lab – New York at Its Core is shaped by four themes: money, density, diversity, and creativity. This behind-the-scenes hardhat tour will give visitors a sneak peek into the construction and design of the Core.
