New York City is an enchanting place for so many all over the world, and the Museum of the City of New York captures that essence to a T. The Museum explores all things New York, from the actual buildings, apartments, parks and streets that make up its urban landscape to the cultures, people, sights, sounds and styles that give it its unique and unmistakable personality. A centerpiece of the experience is "Timescapes," a 22-minute multimedia history of New York City narrated by Stanley Tucci.

About the Museum of the City of New York: The Museum of the City of New York's vivid programming and peek-into-the-past exhibitions are ideal for history lovers and, of course, fans of all things New York City. While you're in the neighborhood: If you're in the mood to visit a restaurant whose menu features nearly every imaginable traditional Italian dish, simply walk north on Fifth Avenue until you reach Gran Piatto d'Oro. The typical flavors of El Barrio (East Harlem), though, are Latin ones—and they can be found throughout the area.
