If you have never visited some of the wonderful museums in Spanish Harlem, such as El Museo del Barrio, Museum of the City of New York (MCNY) and its newest member-the Museum of African Art, well now is your opportunity…and for FREE! On June 14, El Museo del Barrio, MCNY, and the Museum of African Art will participate in the annual Museum Mile Festival.
One day a year, nine of New York City’s museums, all ones that call Fifth Avenue home, collectively open their doors from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. for free to New Yorkers and visitors for a mile-long block party and visual art celebration. This traffic-free, celebration fills the street and sidewalks of Fifth Avenue from 82nd to 105th street, the mile designated as Museum Mile.
The Museum for African Art is the newest member to Museum Mile and is slated to open in September 2011. However, they will have a table out front. So be sure to stop by at Fifth Avenue and 105th Street.
