A Radiant Rescue

ShareThis

Six years ago, the Keith Haring Foundation dismantled the late artist’s Pop Shop in Soho and sent the store’s 1986 Haring-doodle ceiling into storage. Now the mural’s resurfacing in a considerably less dusty location: the entryway of the New-York Historical Society, which itself is reopening after a dramatic three-year, $65 million renovation. In addition to its Pop-y new ceiling, the society’s sparkling Central Park West headquarters will unveil a centerpiece gallery space, a children’s library and history museum in the basement, a revamped museum shop, and a restaurant, Caffè Storico, run by Stephen Starr. Among the permanent installations is “History Under Your Feet,” with New York City artifacts installed beneath transparent manhole covers in the museum floor (170 Central Park W., at 77th St.; reopening Nov. 11; 212-873-3400).
