The Jim Irsay Collection was On Display at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC


Jim Irsay is best known for being the owner of the Indianapolis Colts of the NFL.  He assembled a robust collection of historic and culturally significant artifacts over several decades.  This collection was on display at the Hammerstein Ballroom which is on 34th Street just west of 8th Avenue.  One nice thing was that there was no admission charge.  I used my cell phone camera to take photos of some of the exhibits.
