The New Museum is dedicated to contemporary and cutting-edge art from around the world.

An architectural wonder, the off-kilter structure and its mesh exterior rises to seven-stories. The building really stands out in this lower Manhattan neighborhood — it's a mix of elegant and urban.

Formerly situated in Soho, the New Museum is now located at 235 Bowery (at Prince Street between Stanton and Rivington Streets, one and a half blocks south of Houston).

It's definitely worth a visit to this unique hands-on museum, infact you'll probably want to spend at least a couple of hours here. The museum has collected and preserved over 140,000 Television and Radio programs, each chosen for their artistic, cultural and historical significance. The collection covers more than 75 years of Television and Radio history — from News, Public Affairs Programs, and Documentaries, to the Performing Arts, Children's Shows, Sports, Comedy Shows and Advertising.

Our journey began back in time (or in this case, into the future) watching the unaired Star Trek pilot. We also chose the premieres of Cheers and Hawaii Five-O. Other selections included two classic performances on The Ed Sullivan ShowElvis Presley's 1956 debut and the Beatles 1964 U.S. debut — which incidentally are the two most requested shows in the museum. Finally, we listened to Abbott and Costello's famous radio broadcast of Who's on First.

Paley Center for Media Hours

Open Wed-Sun 12pm-6pm, until 8pm on Thurs. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
