Exclusive GloboMaestro Video: Say hello to the new New-York Historical Society. For years New York City's oldest museum was perhaps best known for the placement of a hyphen between "New" and "York" in its title (a common usage during the museum’s founding in 1804). While steadfastly holding on to its own history, the New-York Historical Society has transformed into a cultural powerhouse thanks to a recent three-year $70 million renovation. Exhibitions are enhanced by shrewd uses of new technologies, from touch-screens to state-of-the-art video projections. Paintings, photographs, maps, and documents have never looked more attractive. It'll make you fall in love all over again with Gotham.
