Two weeks ago on a Thursday Directors Council of the Museum of the City of New York hosted the Museum’s Winter Ball at Cipriani 42nd Street. More than 420 people attended the black tie evening which is basically a dinner dance with only a very brief moment of introducing the Committee who put it together. This year, the committee announced that they raised more than $650,000 for the Museum.

The funds raised go to help support the Museum of the City of New York’s exhibitions and educational programs that reach nearly 50,000 students and teachers from under-served schools; as well as many public programs on topics important to the city and its citizens. 

The Museum’s major new exhibition, New York at its Core, traces the city’s 400-year history through interactive displays and historical objects and has a gallery dedicated to envisioning the city’s future in which visitors can help to design that future. 

Patrick McMullan was there with his lens to give you a good solid overall look of the glamorous crowd attending.
