Not the Met: Exploring the Smaller Museums of Manhattan
By Janel Halpern and Harvey Appelbaum


Peek into some of New York City's largely unknown museums. Travel to museums and experience exhibits through the authors' eyes with these informative vignettes. Readers will enjoy having a profile of the city's museum community in the palms of their hands. Seventy-nine museums are featured along with photographs, directions, helpful tips, and the authors' impressions. From the Museum of American Illustration to the Rubin Museum of Art, visitors and natives alike will delight in these unique gems.

The authors visited 79 surprising and wonderful small museums in Manhattan, many of which they had never heard of, and reported about the astonishing exhibits they saw and enjoyed. Their book is terrific for museum lovers, families, tourists to NYC, and those who live there. Surprises are in store for those who take the amazing trip that they did. There are at least two photographs for each museum and each museum gets a two page spread. This book is a delightful guide and an inexpensive treasure as a Hanukkah gift!
