New York City in 50 Objects

On September 2, Sam Roberts of the New York Times posted a wonderful piece called "The History of New York in 50 Objects."  The objects were selected by local historians and museum curators and represent a wealth of archival documents, ephemera, and material culture. The essays that accompany the stellar color images of the objects are meaty yet succinct, occasionally snarky, but always sophisticated. Take a look and imagine what you might add!
