Uncover the most unusual and eccentric aspects of New York City history on this madcap adventure in the newly renovated galleries of the New-York Historical Society. You'll rummage through the Luce Center, a veritable artifact-stuffed attic with such remarkable items as Washington's Valley Forge cot, a piece of a statue pulled down in a riot after the Declaration of Independence was first read in the city, rioting bears and bulls, antique toys, the portrait of a cross-dressing governor and Aaron Burr's death mask.
Prepare yourselves, history geniuses: NYC’s own live game show spectacular, the Big Quiz Thing, will present a multimedia live trivia game show for history buffs, in celebration of the New-York Historical Society's grand reopening.
