The New York Historical Society's museum has been newly opened (11/11/11) after a 3 year period of renovations. Having visited it long ago when it was a dusty uninviting old place, I was enthralled with the beautiful building and the vast amount of things now on exhibit. We were mostly interested in the wonderful Tiffany lamps, the design of many of them duly attributed after recent findings to Clara Driscoll, the head of the women's department at the Tiffany workshop. We also enjoyed some of Audubon's original watercolors and the film on the New York Story. It would take more visits to adequately discover the other treasures like the paintings from the Hudson River School and I'm looking forward to returning soon.
