Purchase an "apartment" in the Panorama of the City of New York

Will Gleason

Still looking for a unique gift for the holidays? Why not consider buying a loved one some New York real estate for the low price of $50?

That’s the suggested donation level to “purchase” an apartment in The Panorama of the City of New York, the iconic model of NYC that can be seen at the Queens Museum. If you have some cash to burn, and feel like making a real investment, $1,000 will get you a small commercial building, low-rise apartment building or warehouse. Just think of the small business opportunities!

Along with your purchase, the museum is interested in hearing your personal stories regarding the property that you purchased. They’ll record your tale and keep a copy in their archive. You’ll also get a title deed in exchange for your purchase, you know, in case you forget to read all the tiny print.
