Iconic photos of a changing city, and commentary on our Collections & Exhibitions from the crew at MCNY.org
One of the best things about a registrar’s job is the satisfaction that comes from verifying information, seeking out missing documentation, and tying up loose ends. As registrars, we are committed to creating the most detailed records of the move of objects in and out of the Museum; however from time to time, despite the best efforts of our predecessors, things go awry. As the current custodians of the Museum’s collection, it is our duty to attempt to remedy situations left by our predecessors. This is a bittersweet story about one way that can happen.
