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.
