The museum certainly is on the smaller side but I was very pleased with how well the space was utilized! The museum had three exhibitions when I visited, and I especially liked the show on Counterculture fashion of the 1970s. The museum's location in Columbus...More

the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop
