Little Worlds, Archive collection of New York Historical Society


Visiting the New York Historical Society was a real treat and with a lunch at Caffe Storico. My uncle had won a gift certificate to the restaurant and shared it with us. The food and service were terrific and 
I loved the room.

We visited many great exhibits, including a film on the history of New York in 18 minutes. I never thought they could fit it all in there but they did and very well done at that. We visited some of the ongoing exhibits: 

Bill Cunningham: Facades, in 1968, photographer Bill Cunningham embarked on an eight-year project to document the architectural riches and fashion history of New York City.

The Black Fives, This exhibition covers the pioneering history of the African-American basketball teams that existed in New York City and elsewhere from the early 1900s through 1950's.

Homefront & Battlefield: Quilts & Context in the Civil War
To mark the 150th anniversary of the Civil War (1861-1865), the New-York Historical Society presents a groundbreaking traveling exhibition

The Archive collection is huge and fascinating of artifacts from the city of New York, they have everything from toys, paintings, signs, and more...
