Another Visit to the Museum of the City of New York

I last visited this museum this past February to see there the exhibit about Jackie Robinson.  In 8 months time were some new exhibits installed so I thought it was time for a return visit.  I was attract to "Cultivating Culture: 34 Institutions that Changed New York".  This exhibition tells these institutions’ stories through original imagery and objects.  I was most impressed by "The Voice of the Village that included photographs by Fred W. McDarrah whose photos were published for decades in the Village Voice.  It is a shame that the print newspaper folded in August 2017 while the online version ceased in August 2018.  Hey, Look what I found:

Bob Dylan Karen Dalton, and Fred Neil at the Cafe Wha in February 1961

We also saw "City of Workers, City of Struggle" about labor movements throughout the history of New York City.

We spent a little time looking at some of the permanent exhibits we had seen during other visits.
