I love NYC museums and interesting buildings/landmarks in NYC. It would be great to meet people with similar interests.
Yes, I do - Museum of the American Gangster at 80 St Marks PL NY, NY 10003. Two Summers ago I went to this theatre to attend a lecture, my co-workers and I came across the manager who told us of the history of the place - it was once a speakeasy and when he started renovating the theatre, contractors would come across Gangster paraphernalia such as Tommy guns, bullets, newspaper clippings, etc. he said he didn't know what to do with these artifacts. Then I read that he turned part of the building into a museum.
Born & bred New Yorker who loves New York culture, cuisine, theatre and travel. I currently live in Mid-Town Manhattan. I work as a Patient Service Representative for a major hospital in Lower Manhattan.
Great tour! Great stories and history of lower Manhattan.
