Nothing says New York quite like a coffee and a bagel with a schmear from H&H Midtown Bagels East. Enjoy a complimentary bagel and coffee at Museum of the City of New York while learning the things everyone should know about the Big Apple, including the history of the bagel! Following your breakfast and an informative talk by a museum host, you’ll catch an exclusive screening of Timescapes, a new 22-minute multimedia film that reveals how New York became New York, from its beginnings as a settlement of a few hundred Europeans, Africans and Native Americans to its present status as one of the world’s great cities. Narrated by actor Stanley Tucci, the film features animated maps and archival photographs, prints and paintings from the Museum’s collections. Stick around afterward and explore the diverse exhibitions on view before heading out to join the bustle of the city.
