Here's a dispatch from a recent photo shoot in #DressingRoomNY, where our Collections team cloaked one mannequin in Valentina’s 1947 “Cleopatra” (worn by Katharine Cornell in a 1947 hit Broadway production) and another in NY couturier Charles James’s 1951 rose satin ball gown. “Both are very theatrical in their own way,” says fashion curator Phyllis Magidson of the pair of midcentury dresses. But Valentina’s form-defining costume presents quite a contrast to the freestanding architectural marvel that follows. And at 20 pounds of fabric, the James dress took 4 staff members to maneuver onto the form. It's the final week for Dressing Room, which we're keeping open for a special event next Saturday, 4/30; join us!

As we look ahead to the opening of #NYatItsCore in November, here's a peek at how our curators are approaching the enormous task of presenting four centuries of NYC history. Project assistant BJ Lillis describes the transformations and quintessential New York spirit present in one Bronx vista from 1868 to today – watch the full "Recreating View of Melrose" video here: http://mcny.org/nyatitscore.

Need inspiration for the YMC's #WinterThaw party this spring? Visit the Museum's Dressing Room: Archiving Fashion exhibition where our mannequin may don an olive grey jumpsuit one day and a floor length ballgown the next. Now on view through March 25th. #DressingRoomNY

In #DressingRoomNY, a mannequin cloaked in an olive grey jumpsuit uniform might the next day don a floor-length fur-trimmed evening gown and a pair of bunny ears. The following week, the mannequin may find herself in an above-knee vermillion minidress, with a gaggle of museum staff and visitors alike quietly gushing over the ensemble. This week's blog takes you inside the most fashionable gallery of the City Museum, with a tour through our midcentury women's costumes by curator Phyllis Magidson.

Thanks to the Bronx Museum of the Arts for hosting the YMC earlier this month for a tour of their exhibition, Martin Wong: Human Instamatic. We stumbled upon some great pieces including one sketch of a familiar face, Chris "Daze" Ellis whose own work is currently on display at the Museum of the City of New York through May 1!

Waxing nostalgic about "the good old days" of St. Marks may be the hallmark of a real New Yorker; according to journalist Ada Calhoun, author of St. Marks Is Dead (W.W. Norton, 2015), every generation from 1890 to 1990 has done it. The 3-block East Village strip has undergone several massive transformations throughout its lifetime, and is in flux once again today.

Join us for a conversation about St. Marks and the cyclical nature of social commentary in New York with Ada Calhoun and Luc Sante, a critic and journalist with a fascination for the urban underground.

FREE for members and a guest.
