A tourist in New York City with photo camera. #travelphotography. #streetphotography. Metropolitan Museum. People, entrance, works



On March 30, 1880, after a brief move to the Douglas Mansion at 128 West 14th Street, the Museum opened to the public at its current site on Fifth Avenue and 82nd Street. The architects Calvert Vaux and Jacob Wrey Mould designed the initial Ruskinian Gothic structure, the west facade of which is still visible in the Robert Lehman Wing. The building has since expanded greatly, and the various additions—built as early as 1888—now completely surround the original structure. - See more at: http://www.metmuseum.org/about-the-museum/history-of-the-museum/main-building#sthash.N1iDtnJU.dpuf
