Event Details


Discover a treasure-trove of New York City–related art and artifacts, all in a museum that recently underwent a three-year renovation. The hunt features fascinating highlights such as the ceiling mural from Keith Haring’s SoHo Pop Shop, a rumored cross-dressing governor, Thomas Paine’s Common Sense, and a piece of a statue pulled down during the Revolutionary War. In the Luce Center, which is like the city’s attic, you’ll find surprising treasures including George Washington’s cot, old presidential campaign buttons, a naked huntress that once sat atop Madison Square Garden, antique toys...in short, something for everyone!
