When the New-York Historical Society reopens on August 14, 2020, the museum’s rear courtyard will play host to a timely exhibit examining the city’s not-so-distant past. Called “Hope Wanted: New York City Under Quarantine,” the outdoor show takes a look at life under lockdown across the five boroughs, as captured through the lens of photographer Kay Hickman in partnership with poet and journalist Kevin Powell. The pair spent two days in early April interviewing and photographing New Yorkers as they navigated the early weeks of the pandemic. Find the exhibit at West 76th Street between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue. Admission is free, but face masks are required.
