Welcome to the Bronx! Once you hop on this uniquely narrated trip through Upper Manhattan and the Bronx, you’re in for a sightseeing excursion aboard a double-decker bus like no other. You’ll start in Harlem, where you’ll see the famed Harlem Market, where up to 100 vendors from a wide range of African countries sell their wares. Then it’s across 125th Street and over into the Bronx, the fourth-largest Manhattan borough in terms of land area. Here, you’ll see the Grand Concourse, the elegant boulevard that lured millions to make their homes nearby, including Edgar Allan Poe. Next, you’ll head west to the famed new Yankee Stadium, opened at the beginning of the 2009 baseball season. Even from the outside, this state-of-the-art facility is incredibly impressive. After all, it’s the home of the team that’s won 27 World Series championships. And you’ll end back in Harlem, for even more sites – and memories.

    Museum of the City of New York


    Free Admission!

    The Museum of the City of New York embraces the past, present, and future of New York City and celebrates the city's cultural diversity.

    Exhibitions in recent seasons have focused on wide-ranging subjects, illuminating the events and issues that define New York:  how to make this city more sustainable by the year 2030; New York’s emergence from the shadow of its trans-Atlantic sister city, Paris, to take center stage in the fields of design, fashion, and the arts; Catholic New Yorkers, a once-persecuted minority group that transformed the cultural, institutional, and political life of the broader community;  hip hop and its impact on fashion;  Robert Moses and the transformation of the metropolis in the mid-twentieth century;  how immigrants created their own affordable housing in the early twentieth century; the story of a young Russian woman who reinvented American fashion; and other illuminating and fascinating aspects of New York’s rich and diverse past and present.

    In the final full month of its special exhibition, Making Room: New Models for Housing New Yorkers, the Museum of the City of New York will host a series of special events, all free with Museum admission! These events will show visitors how they can live, decorate, cook and organize in small spaces—all taking place in a fully-built micro-unit housed in the Museum. Additionally, over a four-day period, five people will take turns living in the micro-unit to fully experience smaller living quarters.
