Event Description


Intro Room Photo with Data Visualization

Four different immersive rooms create unique portraits of New York life—where every borough, every neighborhood, and every individual help contribute to the city’s magic and myth.


Explore a series of uniquely personal New York stories stitched together by immersive sounds, music, film, and live performances. Contribute your own story to a vast living portrait of the city. See New York—and perhaps even yourself—in a whole new way.

ROOM 1: An Interactive Portrait  

Consider and contribute the story of your New York journey and compare it to those of millions of others. See how your life connects, and intersects, with those who call this city home.
