You can “adopt” a building from the Queens Museum’s scale model of NYC

NewImage

The Queens Museum has a really cool scale model of NYC and they are now allowing folks to “adopt” a building for a donation fee.

The Adopt-A-Building Program provides for the care of The Panorama of the City of New York, the world’s largest architectural scale model. “Own” a piece of the city and help maintain one of New York’s greatest treasures. Donors will receive a title deed for their adopted property. For more information, please contact us at 718.592. 9700 x141 or dw@queensmuseum.org.

Suggested donation levels range from $50 to “purchase” an apartment to $1,000 for a small commercial building, low-rise apartment building, or warehouse. Donors will receive a title deed in exchange for their purchase. Your donation will support the ongoing care and maintenance of The Panorama of the City of New York.

As part of the Adopt-A-Building program, we are collecting your New York Stories! We would love to hear your New York story in connection to your purchase. We have been receiving interesting anecdotes from New Yorkers all over the country and the world. We may link your story on our social media and website. You can enter your story into the Adopt-a-Building form as your make your purchase.

It is our mandate to maintain the architectural integrity of the model. Generic buildings (i.e. homes, brownstones, housing projects, schools, etc.), will remain as they are. Individual buildings will not be altered to reflect specific changes (i.e. Additions, renovations, building color, etc.)
