We entered the New York Historical Society on the north side of the building on 77th. Street where there is a wheelchair ramp. Once inside the building we paid the admission fee and proceeded to the 4th floor. One of the major reasons we wanted to go was the Tiffany Lamp Exhibit, It is in a truly exception gallery with 2 levels. The only downside was that the wheelchair lift was not working so my husband was only able to see the first level. After that we went to the exhibit of the photography of the Duchess of Carnegie Hall, Editta Sherman. Fantastic celebrity photographs, mostly in black and white. Also a constantly looping movie featuring Editta talking about her life in her quarters in Carnegie Hall. On the 1st floor we watched a movie on the history of New York City and used the interactive display boards that explain the paintings and historic objects on display. We also paid a visit to the gift shop. The restrooms were handicapped accessible. We walked there so I can't speak to the parking situation.
