Through guided museum experiences, gallery activities and studio workshops students engage in the panorama as a jumping off point to explore New York’s geography, landmarks, bridges, parks, communities, history, and city planning." Additional programs include an in depth study of the city's watershed, explorations of Tiffany lamps through the Neustadt Collecton of Tiffany Glass, and a rotating selection of international contemporary works in the museums art galleries.
