Museum of the City of New York
We had a guide called Sarah during our museum visit. First she showed us a video about New York´s history called “Timescapes”. Sarah asked a question: how did the city became as it is today? Answer to that question was e.g. through immigration and Industrial Revolution. Then Sarah led us to the activist exhibit in the museum. Activisim in New York stood for nationalism and women’s suffrage. After listening to our guide we went downstairs to another exhibition called “Saving place”. It was about New York´s landmarks and their preservation. Buildings that were chosen to this gallery were either popular landmarks or somehow important to the people of New York like the Empire state building and Saint John´s chapel.
