Perhaps one of the most hidden gems of New York City attractions is the Museum of New York. Found in the Upper East Side/East Harlem at 1220 Fifth Avenue at 103rd Street, this museum celebrates the past, present, and future of the city of New York. Best of all, it also celebrates its diverse residents.

When you first walk in, you learn about the history of the city, how the grid was determined and how long it took to build each street (40 years!). Not only is this information fascinating, but gives a full look on the project New York was to complete. The most fascinating part of the museum was the exhibition on the future of the city. Architects imagine a New York of 50, 100 and 200 years ago that will be built atop existing landscapes.

This museum is a must-see for anyone visiting New York. The museum is open seven days a week from 10 am - 6 pm.
