Writers have described New York City since the harbor was discovered in 1524. Artists have captured its every sparkle and shadow. In "New York, New York," paintings, prints, photographs, postcards, and other works of art from the Museum's encyclopedic collections have been sensitively paired with writing that celebrates the city, including poems, letters, fiction, and memoirs.
Here, a Charles Dickens report on the bustle of Broadway matches nineteenth-century bird's-eye lithographs. Edith Wharton's "Age of Innocence" illuminates an early photogravure by Alfred Stieglitz; and Toni Morrison's "Jazz" plays off a James VanDerZee portrait of Harlem life.
With the works of artists and writers as unforgettable as the city itself, New York, New York is the Metropolitan Museum of Art's valentine to the greatest city in the world.
