☞ ARCHITECTURE: The Museum of the City of New York

The Neo-Georgian building of the Museum of the City of New York was completed in 1930, seven years after the museum was founded. Design by Joseph J. Freedlander, this symmetrical building with its limestone pediment , ionic columns, red brick and marble steps, is the most northern of the institutions on the east side's "museum mile." Housing an art gallery, permanent new york interiors and a trade exhibits alongside rotating shows, the museums is a handsome addition to East Harlem's cultural landscape.  A must see for all New Yorkers. 1220 5th Avenue between 103rd and 104th Street. Tel.(212) 534-1672. Take the 6 train to 103rd Street.
