This Art History and Travel Documentary explores the dramatic, inspiring, and fast paced culture & history of New York: First City of the World. From the proud, beautiful torch-bearing Statue of Liberty to the teeming streets of Midtown Manhattan; from storied skyscrapers such as the Chrysler Building, Empire State Building, and Rockefeller Center to New York City’s jewels, some for sale on Madison and Fifth Avenues and others beyond price at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, MOMA, the Frick Collection, and the Guggenheim.
Built from the entrepreneurial spirit and pioneering instinct of the first families of America’s Capitalist Royalty such as the Rockefellers, the Astors, Andrew Canegie, and J.P. Morgan, amongst others, New York’s mansions, museums, landmarks, and institutions testify to the tireless creativity of those who have come to live in the city’s five boroughs.
Told through the eyes of its artists, poets, architects, and most notable citizens, this installment of the Museum City Series is a wonderful DVD that showcases each city as a living, breathing museum. An indispensable program for travelers, art lovers and history buffs alike, these films are both the ideal start for new travelers en route, as well as the perfect warm reminder of the fond memories from your last trip to the big apple.
NYC has its head in the clouds, and its feet churning on the ground below. It is a city that never sleeps, and the place where dreamers flock. New York City is both a melting pot and an irresistible magnet, drawing to it people of every stripe from every corner of the world.
