Hosted by the the Museum of the City of New York and supported by Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association, "Cars, Culture, and the City" is a first-ever exhibition that explores how New York City has played a pivotal role in creating American car culture, and how the car has helped, in turn, to shape modern New York.

Cars, Culture, and the City features visionary drawings and models; historic photographs, films, and advertisements; and a wealth of car memorabilia to tell this fascinating, largely unknown, story.
The exhibition, inaugurated on last 25 March, will be open until August 8, 2010.
