The exhibition's ninety photographs of New York landmarks, including thirty newly donated by former New York City Landmarks Commissioner Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel, are critical documents that chronicle the city's past from the seventeenth through the twentieth centuries. As the city grew, single family houses were replaced by apartment buildings and then skyscrapers; agriculture replaced manufacturing, which was supplanted by commerce and the movement of goods and services. All of these structures tell the story of New York's journey from a small colonized village to a world class city. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=127137 New-York Historical Society true DD/MM/YYYY
