Are you in 7th, 8th, or 9th grade and have an interest in architecture and city planning? Do you like measuring, drawing and creative design?

If so, then the Neighborhood Explorers program at the Museum of the City of New York is for you!


Get involved in shaping the East Harlem community!  Learn professional skills in architecture, planning, and design while devising creative solutions to neighborhood issues.  This weekly after school program examines diverse community topics such as city planning, architecture and design, urban parks and open spaces, and more.  The program culminates in a public display and presentation at the Museum of the City of New York showcasing student work.  Students will create a professional portfolio of work to keep and may receive community service credit for their participation.
