At the Museum of the City of New York: I Love the '90s
1220 Fifth Ave @ 104th Street

From grunge to gangsta rap, bubblegum pop to black nail polish punk, this party promises to be all that and a bag of chips. 

  • Throwback to the ‘90s with DJ Misbehaviour of Mobile Mondays! and Boogie Blind of X-Ecutioners spinning the anthems you loved when you wore Docs and flannels.
  • Revisit your favorite hip hop moves in an all-levels dance lesson with Uko Snowbunny.
  • Revel in the looks that defined the decade with a pop-up installation of '90s-inspired fashions from 5001 FLAVORS, a Harlem-based apparel company.
  • Stop by our '90s photo booth complete with props straight from the decade.
  • Check out our exhibitions after hours with curator-led tours of New York at Its Core, which explore the evolving history of New York in the 1690s, 1790s, 1890s, and, of course, 1990s.
  • Summer drinks and snacks will be available for purchase from Amy's Bread.
