Behind the Scenes at Museum of the City of New York's "New York at Its Core" Exhibit

The Museum of the City of New York has a new exhibition opening later this year titled New York at Its Core that will tell the story of how New York transitioned from a small Dutch village to a booming metropolis in only four centuries.

As part of the exhibition, vintage pieces of New York City history will be on display, including this cool Apple Peeler from the early days of Russ & Daughters, a LES Jewish Deli that recently celebrated their 100 year anniversary.

Stroll back in time along Orchard Street in this peek into the Museum of the City of New York’s upcoming exhibition New York at its Core, opening November 2016. Hear from the family of one of the Lower East Side’s original pushcart merchants, Joel Russ, and learn from museum curators how an intriguing heirloom in the window of the Russ and Daughters appetizing shop encapsulates the story of New York during the height of immigration to the city at the turn of the 20th century.
