New York City is known throughout the world for its extraordinary cultural offerings, including a host of fascinating art Museums. Walking and riding tours are frequently offered that highlight a few of the city's many treasures. Start in midtown Manhattan, and go up Fifth Avenue towards Museum Mile, an area that begins at East 82nd Street and included nine Museums.

Cocteau quote: "statues escape from Museums and go walking in the streets"

History of the Morgan

Pierpont Morgan - One of the great financiers of turn-of-the-century America, Pierpont Morgan (1837-1913) began to assemble a collection of artistic objects in 1890 to rival the holdings of Europe's renowned libraries. Within a decade, his collections required a building of their own. Morgan's original library, on 30th Street, between Madison and Park avenues, was completed in 1906 by the noted architect Charles McKim as a Renaissance-style palazzo of formal elegance and understated grandeur.

In 1924 J.P. Morgan, Jr. transformed the library into a public institution as a memorial to his father. As the collections grew, he also added an annex adjacent to the original building to serve as both a library and a museum. In 1988 his mid-ninetennth-century brownstone facing Madison Avenue was also added to the complex.
