Visit to the New York Historical Society Today

The New York Historical Society Museum was the third cultural institution that I visited during this holiday break,  I was attracted to Silicon City: Computer History Made in New York City.  This exhibit displayed images, artifacts, interactives, and oral histories, that explore local innovations that were key to computer development, from vacuum tubes and punched cards to transistors.  It showed how New York was a hub for imagining, developing, and selling the computer technology that changed our lives

Another exhibit that I enjoyed was Superheroes in Gotham  which tells the story of the birth of comic book superheroes in New York City and the leap of comic book superheroes from the page into radio, television, and film.  It featured my favorite Superman as well as Batman, Spiderman, Ironman, and Wonder Woman.

A replica of the famous Batmobile was in the exhibit
