The current show on 3rd to 5th centuries in China is excellent. The subject matter is very well selected and the coloration of the display is spectacular. Plus CI is in a brand new facility.

Very small exhibition, but super stunning. Worth a visit, though just 2 rooms. Fee is $7 per person with discounts for memberships in other museums and for seniors.

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
