MUSEUMS & CULTURE
Culture is often born here, but on the occasion it is not, it finds its way to Manhattan. From the famous dioramas of the American Museum of Natural History to the panoramic view of Versailles at the Met, Midtown’s museums are world renowned and unparalleled. Local favorites abound as well – concerts and yoga on Bryant Park, events at the New York Public Library, shopping in and around Herald Square – all within minutes walk from Hotel 373.
