  • Staten Island
    The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge is in the midst of celebrating its 50th anniversary (it opened to traffic on November 21, 1964, and was at the time the world's longest suspension bridge). If you're feeling festive about the span that links Brooklyn and Staten Island, consider heading to the Noble Maritime Collection for Bascove/Bridges: Transporting the Metropolis—a collection of paintings and drawings by the artist, including ones of the Verrazano itself. (The bridge gets some love in another borough, as the New York City Transit Museum hosts Spanning the Narrows: The Verrazano Bridge at 50.) The exhibition examines the bridge's construction through a collection of primary sources like models, maps and personal correspondence from Robert Moses. More Staten Island–related history, not to mention plenty of art, can be at the Staten Island Museum—which also showcases a wealth of natural-science artifacts.
