Join us at noon for an optional family friendly tour of our exhibition, New York Crystal Palace 1853

In this creative writing workshop, kids and families will join together to read short pieces and excerpts by great New York City writers from different eras and backgrounds. Feeling inspired, kids will draw on personal experiences of the city to write their own reflections. They will also learn simple bookmaking skills to present the resulting work. Suitable for ages 6–12. Before the workshop at noon there will be a free family friendly tour of our exhibition, New York Crystal Palace 1853.
