Museums

Several New York City museums can be experienced via Google’s Arts & Culture platform,
including the Met, the Museum of Modern Art, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Cooper
Hewitt
. In addition to providing a glimpse at those museums’ collections, the platform
also lets you explore their buildings—so if you’ve never visited Frank Lloyd Wright’s
nautilus-inspired Guggenheim building, now’s the time to do so (virtually).
Some museums also have virtual tours or exhibitions on their websites, including the
Frick
, the Museum of the City of New York, the New-York Historical Society, the New York
Public Library
.
The American Museum of Natural History is sharing previously recorded tours via its
Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Many city museums have also shared items from their collections using the
hashtag #MuseumAtHome and #MuseumMomentofZen on Twitter—both are good to
follow if you need a moment of levity in the middle of a stressful time.

Parks

Many city parks remain open, but one of the most popular outdoor spots—the High
Line—has closed for now. But you can still go on a virtual tour of the elevated park
through Google Arts & Culture.

Libraries

Though New York City’s library branches are closed, many of the services that they
provide—including access to e-books, research materials, and more—are available
digitally. See what’s available via the New York Public Library, Brooklyn Public Library,
and the Queens Public Library.
