Let’s travel back in time and explore the history of New York City through a read aloud of the book by Jennifer Thermes, Manhattan: Mapping the Story of an Island. We’ll hear about Manhattan’s forests of 20,000 years ago to the tall skyscrapers of today! In this mostly-outdoor activity, we will draw inspiration from views of the harbor and Statue of Liberty just outside the Museum, where young cartographers will create their own maps of Manhattan.
This is an in-person children’s program that meets at the Skyscraper Museum, 39 Battery Pl.
