  • History of Carnegie Hall at the Rose Museum


    A grand pillar of the New York music scene, Carnegie Hall is the place artists go to, to make their name in the business. Since its opening in 1891, an array of superstars of the classical, pop, modern and jazz worlds have graced the boards of this legendary music hall. From Tchaikovsky and Leopold Stokowski to Vladimir Horowitz, Liza Minnelli, Paul Robeson and Bob Dylan, the world's finest and most talented performers have taken to the stage and earned their stripes of this Manhattan musical institution. Although the Hall reigns supreme over 120 years after its grand launch, there have been many twists and turns in its story including change of owners, imminent demolition and rescue by the city of New York. To celebrate its long and colorful history, the Susan and Elihu Rose Foundation's Rose Museum recounts every step through an ongoing display of a collection of artifacts including concert programs, videos, photographs, autographed posters and musical manuscripts. Open daily with free admission, this is one exhibition not be missed whether a fan of NYC, music or history alike.

  • Cockpit USA Culture Fix: Kevin Francis Gray

    At Cockpit USA we appreciate history in all its many forms. Whether an antique flight jacket from which we can draw inspiration for a new piece of outerwear, an American Airpower Museum aircraft that represents the bravery of all those who have served in the name of freedom, an exhibition detailing life during WWII or even simply a dogeared photo from yesteryear – we want to know as staunch history fans! Housed at Haunch of Venison in New York City, London based artist Kevin Francis Gray is currently exhibiting his exquisitely crafted porcelain, bronze and marble sculptures. Inspired and influenced by historical classic form, his works juxtapose all that was with all that is with his subjects focused on popular culture and urban life. Reminiscent of grand Greek statues, Gray shines a light on a form that was once prevalent and still remains completely captivating.

  • White Gold: Meissen Porcelain

    You would be forgiven for forgetting your whereabouts when visiting the Frick Collection in New York's Upper East Side. An escape from the bustle of the city's traffic riddled streets and teeming crowds, Mr. Frick's private home is a realm of culture and art. Among the permanent collection, which boasts works from the likes of the great Renoir, Boucher and John Constable is the current exhibition, entitled White Gold. On display in the brand new Portico Gallery are highlights from the Arnhold Collection of Meissen Porcelain of approximately seventy of Henry Arnhold's pieces and two sculptures by Jean-Antoine Houdon, The Dead Thrush and Diana the Huntress. Even if the world of art isn't exactly your cup of jo, take it from us at Cockpit USA - the grounds in which these pieces reside is well worth a visit!

  • Merchant's House Museum

    As the only family home in New York City's vast metropolis to remain preserved both internally and externally, the Merchant's House Museum is a heritage treasure trove waiting to be discovered. Located on East Fourth St, the National Historic Landmark is not only a safeguarded building aesthetically, but through exhibitions and an array of programs, the building exists to educate about the era in which it was built, the lives of its inhabitants, the Tredwell family and the original contents provide a rare insight into a time long gone. Erected in 1832 close to the historic Washington Square, the picturesque home and garden is open to visitors from Thursdays to Mondays with group tours available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. As champions of anything remotely antique, the Merchant's House Museum is a Cockpit USA favorite!

  • Newspaper Spires: From Park Row to Times Square

    Between the 1870s and 1900s, the New York City was in the burgeoning stage of carving out its iconic shape in the skies courtesy of major newspaper headquarters. The Times, Tribune and World built up their iconic towers, cutting tall figures in the skyline and forming 'Newspaper Row' located east of City Hall Park. Unlike today, the entire news production operation from sniffing out stories, to editing, printing and distribution was housed under one looming roof. As self confessed vultures of culture and history lovers, the new exhibition at The Skyscraper Museum in NYC entitled Newspaper Spires: From Park Row to Times Square certainly caught our attention at Cockpit USA! Not only will authentic photographs and architectural drawings of the buildings be on show, but books, magazines and old, grizzly newspapers of yesteryear will also be on display as a tribute to the paling existence of the print world and the power it once wielded.
