This exhibits revisits the history of New York City through the social and political movements that have shaped it, from early abolishionist through to modern bicycle and transportation activists and every major social issue in between. Protest songs, pamphlets, flags, and even vandalism form the core of the collection, supplemented by detailed discussions of the issues and their outcomes.
The 400-year history of New York City is told through everyday objects from the collection: oyster shells, subway tokens, bowler hats, flyers, magazines, and tea sets. From Henry Hudson to now and on into the future of New York City--this is the foundation of the museum and merits careful exploration.
