It’s  the  Museum  of  the  City  of  New  York  and it’s  located  at  104th  Street  and Fifth  Avenue .

It’s  on the  part of  Fifth  Avenue  known  as  ”  Museum  Mile  ” ,  because  of  all the  museums  that  are located  from 79th  Street  all the  way  up  to  104th  Street.

There are  three floors  in this  museum ,  and on all of  them ,  you basically  get the  history  of the  city ,  past and  present .

The museum  also  has special  exhibits  such as  ”  Activist  New York  ” ,  which  doesn’t  only  tell you  about  recent  protests  such as  the  ”  Black  Lives  Matter  ”   and “Occupy  Wall Street  “, but protests  against  slavery and Immigration .

There’s  also  a  movie  shown  called  “Timesscapes  ” ,  that gives  you  a  30  minute history  of  the  city  as well as an exhibit  on what the city might  look  like  in the  future .

If you  happen  to  take the stairs  in the  museum ,  which the  museum  happens  to  be  called ,  ”  New  York ‘ s  most exciting  staircase , ”  be sure  to  notice  some  of  the  quotes  about  the  city  from everyone  from  Thomas  Jefferson  to Woody  Allen .

Some  of  these  quotes are quite poignant ,  others might  make you laugh  out loud .

Expect  to  be  at the museum  longer  than  an an hour.

There’s  so much  to  see here.
