Get a Key, Unlock Doors


Last time you were at the Brooklyn Museum, you probably didn’t notice the hidden door next the portrait of George Washington in the Luce Center for American Art, but now you can see what’s inside once you have a key!

Key to the City, by Paul Ramírez Jonas, allows every New Yorker a chance to go behind the scenes by giving you a key to locked doors all over the city.  From June 3rd to June 27th, Creative Time will have a kiosk in Times Square, where they will bestow you a key and a sitemap, guiding you on a scavenger hunt across the five boroughs.  There are over 20 sites, including the Brooklyn Museum, Gracie Mansion, and the Bronx County Courthouse.

Tell us about your discoveries, post photos to our flickr group, or tweet about them using hashtag #keytocity.
