New York Historical Society
170 Central Park West at Richard Gilder Way (77th Street) New York, NY 10024
This exhibit at the New York Historical Society takes viewers into the heart of Greenwich Village, which in the early 20th century was a hotbed of political activism and social change. This exhibit specifically celebrates one of the key stances of the Greenwich Village hotbed: Women’s rights. The right to control their own bodies, to do meaningful work, and to vote were of key concerns during this time period.
On view at the Joyce B. Cowin Women’s History Gallery, an extension of the NYHS, Hotbed currently features more than 100 artifacts and images, as well as immersive installations.
Full-price tickets can be purchased at $21 for adults, $6 for kids ages 5 to 13, $13 for students, and $16 for seniors. Tickets can be purchased from the New York Historical Society’s website.
The NYHS is open Tuesday-Thursday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Fridays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed on Mondays.
