Nothing says New York quite like a coffee, an H&H bagel and a schmear. Enjoy your included meal while learning the top 10 things everyone should know about the Big Apple -- including the history of the bagel. After the informative talk by a museum docent, 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. Learn More

The Greatest Grid traces the enduring influence of the 1811 plan as the grid has become a defining feature of the city, shaping its institutions and public life.
