Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, for the first time or the fortieth, New York City never fails to excite visitors with its heart-pounding mix of museums, theaters, restaurants, shopping and must-see attractions. Dubbed “The City That Never Sleeps,” it’s a world stage of finance, politics, art and media – entertaining and engaging all in a melting pot of culture, creativity and tenacity.
Mad for Mad Men
New York is famous for its art museums, and rightly so. But if you're in the mood for something more unique, check out the Museum of the Moving Image, the only museum in the country devoted exclusively to the history, art and technology of movies and TV, just a short train ride away from our Times Square hotel. Currently host to an incredible exhibition celebrating AMC's Mad Men (now enjoying an extended stay through September 6), the Museum of the Moving Image features actual props from classic films such as Blade Runner and Star Wars, as well as interactive exhibits that let you step into a filmmaker's shoes. They also run screenings of award-winning independent films, so there's always something new happening. On your next New York City trip, take the (museum) road less traveled.
