  • Ground Zero Museum WorkshopGround Zero Museum Workshop New York City, New York
    The Biggest Little Museum in New York City is the Ground Zero Museum Workshop that tells so much about the September 11, 2001 bombing and the recovery that is considered to be one of the top ten attractions in the city. It is the only museum of its kind in the city, or anywhere else in the world for that matter, bringing many World Trade Center remnants and more than 80 of Gary Marlon Susan's most memorable photographs from the Ground Zero Recovery; that includes the Ground Zero Bible page, numerous Honor Guard images, the Today is 11 calendar page and the clock stopped at 10:02 AM from September 11th. The images have been shown on many television sites and newspaper pages. The museum highlights lifelike 3-D installations that put you right into the hole at ground zero and many of the items can be picked up and handled. This workshop is definitely a humbling and emotional experience, like the Anne Frank Museum in Holland, where reality is shown as it was and not sugar coated. No graphic or morbid images can be seen anywhere and the nucleus of the collection focuses more on the recovery efforts that the tragedy of that fateful and infamous morning. It is all presented in a tasteful and beautiful way, or at least as much is possible considering the events, but history cannot be ignored, so please be prepared for an emotional experience like none you have ever had. It isn't the same as standing outside the gates of Ground Zero, but a much deeper and personal sense of feelings. They have rare video footage from the recovery area that is shown on a large screen as you peruse the photographs and memories. The intention of Mr. Susan's Museum Workshop is not to be harrowing, but rather a meaningful and magnificent way of remembering the fallen and those brave people that strove to recover them. The most memorable sight that most of us have of that day is the two towers collapsing and the aerial video footage of Ground Zero that was shown on the news. This workshop will take you past the security gates, months afterwards, into a world that wasn't known other than those that actually worked at the site, the World Trade Center site.

  • Metropolitan Museum of ArtMetropolitan Museum of Art New York City, New York
    The Met, or more formally the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Museum Mile in New York City sits along the eastern edge of Central Park and contains over 2 million works of art that is divided into 19 curatorial departments, in their permanent collection. It is one of the world's biggest art galleries with a smaller second locale in Upper Manhattan, called the Cloisters, featuring medieval art. The permanent collection contains works from classical antiquity and ancient Egypt, sculptures and paintings from almost all the European masters, as well as an expansive collection of modern and American artworks. It also has impressive holdings of Byzantine, Oceanic, Islamic, Asian and African art and is home to an encyclopedic collection of musical instruments, antique armor and weapons from around the world and costumes and accessories. Magnificent interiors include those from the 1st century Rome to the modern American design, and are permanently located in the museum. The Met was started in 1870 by a group of Americans that included leading artists, financiers, businessmen and thinkers of the period that desired a museum to bring art and art education to the masses; and opened on February 20th, 1872. 2007 had the Met being a quarter mile long and over 2 million square feet.  The rich history of the museum could be a story in itself, as the most influential and wealthy men of the era became involved in creating this fantastic museum that would become one of the finest in the world. It opened in 1872, in a building on Fifth Avenue, with John Taylor Johnston, railroad executive that used his personal art collection to seed the museum and served as its first president. Publisher George Palmer Putnam became the first superintendent and famous artist Eastman Johnson coming on as a co-founder. Former Civil War officer Luigi Palma di Cesnola became the first director, serving from 1879 to 1904. With these men leading, the holdings, which was a Roman stone sarcophagus and 174 paintings, the majority being European, grew very fast and soon needed more space. In 1873, the Met bought the Cesnola Collection of Cypriot antiquities and was forced to move out of its premises and moved into the Douglas Mansion on West 14th Street; which didn't last long as the collection continued to grow and needed more space. Negotiating with the city in 1871, the museum obtained land on the east side of Central Park, where the permanent home was constructed; a red brick mausoleum designed by American architect Calvert Vaux and his collaborator Jacob Wrey Mould. Vaux's ambitious designs weren't received too well since the high Victorian Gothic style was on the wane as construction started and the Met's president said it was a mistake. Before 20 years had passed, another architectural plan was instituted, using the Vaux building an part of the interior and stripping it of the distinctive design elements. Since then, many new galleries and architectural elements have been added, including the impressive Beaux-arts facade, that was designed by architect and Met trustee Richard Morris Hunt and finished in 1902. The great entrance hall was also designed by Hunt, who passed on before it was finished. His son, Richard, made sure that his father's specifications were used to finish the work. As of 2010, the size of the Met is now 20 times its original size.
