Upcoming Exhibitions at Museum of the City of New York 

Cycling in the City: A 200-Year History
Date: March 14 - October 6, 2019

Cycling in the City traces the bike’s transformation of urban transportation and leisure and explores the extraordinary diversity of cycling cultures in the city, past and present.

City of Workers, City of Struggle: How Labor Movements Changed New York
Date: May 1 – December 29, 2019

For over two centuries, working people’s movements have shaped New York—and vice versa. Some of the first labor organizations in the country were formed by the city’s artisans in the early 19th century, and some of the nation’s foremost labor leaders have been New Yorkers, from Samuel Gompers and Elizabeth Gurley Flynn to A. Philip Randolph and Sidney Hillman, and more recently John Sweeney and Dennis Rivera.

But working New Yorkers have also struggled with each other over pay, power, and inclusion. New waves of workers—women, immigrants, people of color, and the “unskilled”—have repeatedly defined their own movements for a better life, and in the process remade city life in ways that affect all. City of Workers, City of Struggle traces the social, political, and economic story of these diverse workers and their movements in New York through rare documents, artifacts, and footage, and considers the future of labor in the city.

The Voice of the Village: Fred W. McDarrah Photographs
Date: Opens June 6, 2019

The Voice of the Village: Fred W. McDarrah Photographs examines New York City from the tumultuous 1950s to the dawn of the 1970s through the lens of photographer Fred W. McDarrah. A curious, knowledgeable, and indefatigable visual chronicler, McDarrah created an encyclopedic archive of culture and politics for the alternative newsweekly The Village Voice; from the Beats of the 1950s to the counterculture of the ’60s to the Stonewall uprising and major political events of the early 1970s. The exhibition features images of cultural icons such as Allen Ginsberg and Bob Dylan, with a particular focus on the agitation for civil rights and anti–Vietnam War demonstrations.

A companion exhibition, PRIDE: Photographs of Stonewall and Beyond by Fred W. McDarrah, is also on view, focusing on McDarrah’s images of gay pride and other LGBTQ parades, demonstrations, and events.
