What does it mean for a place to “matter”? What kinds of places can matter? What makes a place matter? The Municipal Art Society and Place Matters, a joint project of the MAS and City Lore, have identified two very different examples of places that have great historic and cultural importance. Both CBGBs and the Plaza Hotel are places that are deeply rooted in the identity of our city and hold memories and anchor traditions for individuals and communities. We invite you to learn what others say about these storied institutions and to contribute your own memories for display on our website.
