Soar over the city at RiseNY, a three-part, one-of-a-kind experience in the heart of NYC! 

Step back in time to 1904 as you visit NYC’s very first subway station at City Hall and watch an immersive film by documentarian Ric Burns, voiced by actor Jeff Goldblum, that showcases how NYC became the crossroads of the world. After you discover how the subway system connected New Yorkers across the city, journey through seven exhibits - Fashion, Music, Movies and more - featuring historic artifacts, star-studded memorabilia and priceless photo ops that illustrate how these industries rose up to connect NYC to the world and make this city so globally famous. Finally, take flight on the first-ever soaring ride over New York and experience the sights, sounds, and smells of the Big Apple as you fly over the city's most iconic landmarks and celebrations.
