The New York Historical Society is an American history museum and library, located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Designated a New York City landmark, the granite building, designed by York & Sawyer, in a classic Roman Eclectic style, was opened in 1908 as New York’s first museum.
It holds and extensive collection of artifacts, American art, and other materials that documents the history of New York and the United States. It also presents exhibitions, public programs, curriculum-based school programs and teacher resources, and provides academic fellowships.
Given the extensive programs offered, the New York Historical Society is undertaking a much-needed expansion and restoration. AAM is assisting in this by restoring the historic bronze windows, refinishing and reglazing the sashes, and restoring the monumental grille.
