        History as Narrative | Treasures of New York: "Museum of the City of New York"

        Learn about presenting history as a character-driven narrative in this video from Treasures of New York: “Museum of the City of New York.”  Historians discuss the difficulty in attempting to summarize the story of New York City and to select individuals who represent key moments in time for a new museum exhibition. Support materials include a lesson plan, student handout, discussion questions, and teaching tips.

        The Museum of the City of New York has a nearly 100 year history, from its first days operating out of Gracie Mansion to the recent opening of its ambitious new permanent exhibition, New York at Its Core. Since its founding, the museum has worked to display, explore, and celebrate New York City’s past, present, and future.
