Polshek Partnership architects unveil design plans for the Museum of the City of New York 

The Museum of the City of New York undergoes a major albeit much delayed transformation. In 1986 the Museum of the City of New York, the only museum dedicated to the history of the City, announced plans to thoroughly revamp its Harlem NY digs, originally built in 1932. While that project has languished for twenty years, The Museum announced that the first phase of its 70 million transformation is finally underway. Designed by Polshek Partnership Architects of New York, the first phase of the work calls for a 23,000 square foot two-storey glass addition to be built at the rear of the Museum that will house a curatorial center, a new gallery and other amenities. The new wing, which will cost 28 million, will be ready for occupancy in 2008. It is anticipated that the entire project will be completed in 2012.
