The Stettheimer Dollhouse at the Museum of the City of New York


It is a time capsule - New York in the Jazz Age, writ small, and complete with tiny original works by Marcel Duchamp and George Bellows, among others. Adults may covet the two-story maisonette with a private elevator (even if it is only about four feet high) but children will immediately populate the empty rooms with people of their own imaginings - like the Museum itself, the dollhouse and its works belong to the people of New York.
