The New York Dolls' David Johansen and Wu-Tang Clan's RZA are among the musicians who hail from Staten Island. Examine their legacy, as well as that of the borough's instrument makers and classic venues, through collectibles, instruments and other artifacts. The exhibit even stretches back to cover the Native American Lenape's songs and the folk music of New Amsterdam.
