New-York Historical Society, Upper West Side Thursday June 13 2013 10:00 - 18:00
This summer’s main exhibition at New-York Historical Society puts the early days of a ravaging epidemic on display, exploring its impact on the culture and life of Gotham. Using posters, photos, and troves of information from the archives of the New York Public Library, NYU and the National Archive of LGBT History, “AIDS in New York” looks back on a time when few knew how to handle the disease or where to turn for help.
