Batteries Not Included: Toys and Trains at the New-York Historical Society


By Emanuelle Block


Celebrate the holiday season with toys from the past as the New-York Historical Society presents an exhibition of 19th and 20th century toys from the museum’s permanent collection.   On display will be a playful selection of cast iron, tin, and carved wooden toys and coin banks (some dating back to 1850!).  Toy enthusiasts will enjoy the mechanical banks, wind-up toys,  soldiers, and intricate antique trains.  170 Central Park West at 77th Street.  nyhistory.org
