For decades, Americans saw the world through the lens of the magazine's photographers. Yet between the 1930s and the early 1970s, LIFE kept only six women photographers on staff. LIFE's Women features more than 80 images showcasing the extraordinary work created by those six staff photographers: Margaret Bourke-White, Hansel Mieth, Marie Hansen, Martha Holmes, Nina Leen, and Lisa Larsen. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=349593 New-York Historical Society New-York Historical Society

Venue Description: A trip to New York wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the New-York Historical Society with four centuries of history and art – plus the only Children’s History Museum in the area. It hits the spot for anyone craving an offbeat (and often surprising) bite of the city’s culture easily digested in an hour or two. Quirky, smart, immersive and across the street from beautiful Central Park, it offers a rich taste of the city.
