Opened in 1975, the Manhattan Art & Antiques Center (MAAC) is New York's oldest established emporium for antiques. It houses 100 galleries on three levels, linked by elevators and a dramatic spiral staircase. The dealers offer a variety of silver, jewelry, porcelain, tapestries, furniture, clocks and paintings along with many other objects of art from around the world. The MAAC is an important resource for collectors, interior designers and architects, and over the years has become a destination for celebrities and visitors alike. Whether an antiques buff or tourist looking for the perfect gift, the MAAC is the perfect destination for a quick purchase or a full day of browsing and shopping.
