Profile

The museum is primarily known for this striking, 9,335-square-foot architectural model built for the 1964 World’s Fair. Starting on the main level, the exhibit (which looks like a pop-up version of a subway map) shows minute details of New York City streets and buildings, as they stood in 1992. Visitors get to look down on the panorama, made up of 895,000 tiny buildings, from an elevated ramp, which circles the exhibit and eventually ends on the second floor. The lighting flickers off intermittently and leaves only tiny lights and glow-in-the-dark objects, creating an impression of the city at night.
