I grew up about an hour outside of New York City. My parents would take me in a few times a year, and from those experiences I developed an idea of what big cities are like. It took a while for me to realize that New York is remarkable as cities go. It’s huge. It has a prime geographical location. Its people are diverse in a multitude of ways. It’s filled with wealth, yet more than 20% of its citizens live in poverty. There is no other city in the world like New York, and that’s why the Museum of the City of New York must be a fascinating place to visit. They are a non-profit that explores “the past of this fascinating and particular place for lessons about our future” while celebrating “New York’s heritage of diversity, opportunity, and perpetual transformation.”
Ideally you’d go visit the Museum of the City of New York to get a feel for what they do and how they are preserving and telling the history of New York. But if you can’t do that, you can explore their exhibitions and their collections online. There’s a ton to learn from the museum, and it’s only going to get better. They’re currently in the midst of an $85 million expansion project. MCNY’s website is a bit light on information about the museum and its operations, and that continues with their Jobs page, which has no postings. Luckily, they do have postings on Idealist for a Development Associate, a Grant Writer, and a Rights & Reproductions Specialist. Take a look at the positions and see if any suit you.
