Tenement MuseumIt is an unusual idea making a tenement into a museum. But that’s what the aptly-named Tenement Museum is. The museum, which may only be seen by guided tour, offers various programs regarding the roles of immigrants in the US. There are seven different tours with four lasting one hour and two others 90 minutes. The seventh tour is an in-depth experience lasting two hours and focusing on immigrants weathering difficult times. The museum features authentic furnishings and accessories as it recreates the living situation that faced most of the people who came to America’s shores in the late 19th through the early 20th century.

St. Johns CathedralThe Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine is the seat of the Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New York. The cathedral was designed in 1888 and construction began in 1892. It is still unfinished.  Magnificent architecture and beautiful stained glass windows define this Gothic Revival cathedral, the nave of which exceeds the length of two football fields. The 162-foot dome could house the Statue of Liberty. The Cathedral’s Great Rose Widow, made of more than 10,000 pieces of glass, is the largest stained-glass window in the United States.

 

There are various public tours, including a Vertical Tour that takes visitors up 124 feet for spectacular views of the cathedral and New York City. In many different ways, the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine is awe-inspiring.

New York City Fire MuseumThe FDNY’s original museum opened as the Fire College Museum in Long Island City in 1934. In 1959 the collection was moved to the spare bay of a working firehouse at 100 Duane Street in Manhattan, where it remained until the Home Insurance Company presented its own extensive collection of fire memorabilia to the city in 1981, making a move to larger space imperative. A new non-profit, The Friends of the New York City Fire Department Collection, was created to raise funds to renovate the former quarters of Engine Company No. 30, a 1904 Beaux-Arts firehouse on Spring Street, and in 1987, the New York City Fire Museum opened its doors.

 

   Displays illustrate the evolution of firefighting from the bucket brigades of Peter Stuyvesant’s New Amsterdam through the colorful history of volunteer firefighters to modern firefighting techniques and equipment. The Museum also houses a special memorial to the 343 members of the FDNY who made the Supreme Sacrifice on 9/11 and features a number of firefighting artifacts recovered from the World Trade Center site. A video room and a mock apartment with an artificial smoke machine and black-lighted fire hazards are used in the museum’s fire education program for school children ages K through 12.

 

   The New York City Fire Museum attracts 40,000 visitors a year from all over America and almost every country in the world. Retired FDNY firefighters proudly volunteer to relate stories of New York City’s “Bravest” and with the help of the Museum’s stunning collection, tell how they got to be that way.

sept11_logo“The National September 11 Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center site, near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon, as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993.

“The Memorial’s twin reflecting pools are each nearly an acre in size and feature the largest manmade waterfalls in the North America. The pools sit within the footprints where the Twin Towers once stood. Architect Michael Arad and landscape architect Peter Walker created the Memorial design selected from a global design competition that included more than 5,200 entries from 63 nations.
“The names of every person who died in the 2001 and 1993 attacks are inscribed into bronze panels edging the Memorial pools, a powerful reminder of the largest loss of life resulting from a foreign attack on American soil and the greatest single loss of rescue personnel in American history.”

Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum Complex

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum Complex offers visitors exciting experiences in science, technology and history. With the aircraft carrier Intrepid as its primary base, the museum utilizes all levels of this great, restored vessel. Commissioned in 1943, the Intrepid helped defeat Japan in World War II and was later involved in picking up astronauts after they splashed down. Today you can walk its decks, view its extensive display of aircraft and get a feeling for what life was like on this floating city. In addition to the Intrepid, the museum features the Growler, a “top-secret” Navy submarine, and the Concorde, the fastest passenger jet in the world. This is a full sea, air and space experience.

NASA’s space shuttle prototype Enterprise arrived in the summer of 2012…

On December 11, 2011, a ceremony onboard the Intrepid marked the shuttle’s transfer of ownership to the aircraft museum. While the Enterprise was not launched into space, it was used for 16 approach and landing tests in the 1970’s, eight of which were manned by teams of NASA astronauts.

On April 23, 2012, the Enterprise was flown atop NASA’s shuttle carrier aircraft to New York’s JFK International Airport. During that summer, the shuttle was transported by barge to the Intrepid museum complex. At present, the Enterprise is displayed on the deck of the aircraft carrier.  Eventually, however, it will become part of new museum facility to be built across the street from the pier.

Guggenheim Museum

Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the current Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum opened in 1959. The building’s distinctive design was Wright’s last major work and, at first, was not received by universal acclaim. Today, however, the museum is considered among the most important pieces of architectural design of the twentieth century and is registered as a National Historic Landmark. The Guggenheim houses a vast permanent collection of modern and contemporary art and counts among its collection the works of Klee, Mondrian, Chagall, Modigliani and Picasso. The museum offers impressive programming that includes special exhibits, performances, lectures, and classes.
Daily tours are available.

frick_logoThe Frick Collection is housed in the New York mansion built by industrialist and art collector Henry Clay Frick (1849–1919). Upon his death, the art collection, the mansion, and all its furnishings were bequeathed to the public. Since then, both the collection and the building have been expanded. Touring the Frick, one sees major works of sculpture, a superb collection of small bronzes, great paintings by the most renowned European artists and premium 18th century French porcelains and furniture. Also on display are Oriental rugs, Limoges enamels, silver, and textiles. Lectures, seminars and concerts are all part of the offerings at the Frick. Be sure to inquire about the Acoustiguide audio tours that contain recorded information about the masterpieces on view. (No children under 10 years of age admitted.)

folk art museum

The distinction “American” in the museum’s name refers more to where the museum is located rather than the focus of its content. The museum collection includes both American folk art and the works of international self-taught artists. To help visitors attain a better understanding of American folk art, the museum’s collection includes contributions of the many diverse groups who contributed to American culture.

The collection at the American Folk Art Museum includes early portraits, landscapes and seascapes, sculptures, trade figures, signs and weather vanes. In addition, furniture, pottery, needlework, rugs, quilts, and coverlets reflect both the history and the artisans’ skills of the period. Works of contemporary artists reveal the evolution of styles and trends over the years.

Visitors are invited to tour the museum on their own or arrange for a guided group tour.
