Muslim in New York

"Muslims have been woven into the fabric of New York since the city’s origins as New Amsterdam and today New York’s diverse Muslim community—immigrant and American-born, from multiple racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds—constitutes an estimated 3% of the city’s population, some 270,000 people living in all five boroughs. They represent an important part of the diversity that the Museum of the City of New York’s rich photography collection chronicles."

Another Education Center favorite from #ActivistNY for #PrimarySourceWednesday! "While the Nation is buoyant with patriotism, and all hearts are attuned to praise, it is with sorrow we come to strike the one discordant note, on this hundredth anniversary of our country's birth". This excerpt comes from the National American Woman Suffrage Association's "Declaration of Rights of the Women of the United States", published on the nation's centennial in 1876.

We're excited to announce our new exhibition, New York at Its Core, opening this fall! Looking forward to expanded possibilities for tours, workshops, and exciting historical explorations!

“Our history was not inevitable, but a variety of reasons converged to produce what it is that makes New York New York.” Chief curator Sarah Henry discusses our landmark exhibition, New York at its Core, with The New York Times. Opening in November, the exhibition will depict the full scope of New York City history – and consider its future – in three galleries on the museum's first floor: Port City (1609–1898), World City (1898 to 2012) and Future City Lab. #NYatItsCore

#primarysourcewednesday
In honor of the launch of our New York City History Day program and the opening of the exhibition of "Carl Van Vechten: Photographing the Harlem Renaissance and Beyond," we present this classic photo of jazz singer Billie Holiday. Van Vechten considered his photographs of the iconic singer, in which she can be seen laughing, crying, and hugging her boxer, Mister, amongst his best. There is still time to join us this evening for the opening at 5pm.

This 1913 Byron Company image from our Collections Portal depicts ten Blackfoot Native Americans from Glacier National Park, Montana on the roof of the McAlpin Hotel in New York City. The party, which included seven chiefs, was brought east as guests of railway tycoon Louis W. Hill to be “part of the scenery” at a travel and vacation show taking place in the city. When they arrived in the city, the natives were offered a number of suites at the hotel but choose to spend the night in their teepees on the roof of the building, 25 stories off the ground. The native party then invited other hotel guests onto the roof for a chance to visit this makeshift village in the sky.

We had an exciting weekend -- Check out some of our favorite moments from the 25th Anniversary of NYC History Day!

We celebrated the 25th annual NYC History Day last Sunday, 3/8, drawing over 400 students along with educators, families and friends. Students showcased their research projects on the theme of Leadership and Legacy in History, and we concluded with an awards ceremony. Congrats to all of our participants, and to Maryann Cooke of Sacred Heart of Jesus & Nancy Condon of Academy of American Studies for their dedication to history education! The two educators received the 1st ever Frederick A.O. Schwarz Children’s Center Educator of the Year Award. [Photos by Lissa Rivera]
