Track how New York City was represented to decades of new travelers, immigrants, and tourists. The city’s explosive growth beginning at the end of the 19th century ultimately led to the creation of more travel posters than were designed for any other world city: a host of images as varied as her ever-shifting identity, seen from the water, from the ground, and, eventually, from the air. Explore how artists were able to capture the multitude and the magnitude of the thriving metropolis, selling the hustle and the bustle, the bright lights and the imposing structures, as well as managing to capture some moments of intimacy and slice-of-life imagery within the canyons and among the ziggurats.
