Much of the beliefs surrounding New York City are imbued with the idea that you “just missed” the real New York City. This wasn’t surprising in a city that meant so many different things to so many different people, and this represented obstacles forward at a violent pace on both a micro and macro level. Old New York then New York and New York now is a chasm that never changes. The Museum of the City of New York has a fresh take on this metaphor, which, I must admit, sounds rather inviting. Their new gallery Analog city Takes a look at New York City in the pre-digital era. I will definitely stop by to check it out.
The Museum of the City of New York is located at 1220 Fifth Ave at 103rd St. And it opens its doors from Thursday 10-9, from Friday to Monday 10-5.
Analog City: B.C. New York (before computers) reveals the set of lost tools, technologies, and professions that powered New York City as it exploded into a cosmopolitan city in the pre-digital age. Focusing on the period between the 1870s and the 1970s, Analog City examines the technologies that enabled the city to reach its status as the “Capital of the World” in an age that predates the speed and capability of current digital technologies. Set against a contemporary backdrop of 24-hour news cycles and high-speed circulation – as questions about privacy, truth and the impact of social media increasingly pressing – the exhibition unearths this ancient era of paper files and pneumatic tubes, noteworthy cards and telephone directories, and examines how New York thrived As a center for finance, news, research and real estate in the era before personal computers and the Internet.
