Come discuss one of the greatest avoidable tragedies in American history – the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire - which radicalized New Yorkers to fight for the rights of workers. Then, see original artifacts from the era on exhibit in The Armory Show at 100: Modern Art and Revolution. Ages 7 and up.
Venue Description: A trip to New York wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the New-York Historical Society with four centuries of history and art – plus the only Children’s History Museum in the area. It hits the spot for anyone craving an offbeat (and often surprising) bite of the city’s culture easily digested in an hour or two. Quirky, smart, immersive and across the street from beautiful Central Park, it offers a rich taste of the city.
