Art for Children

Art for the young (and young at heart) may be found throughout the halls in the form of interactive, inter-generational displays. The Hebrew Home boasts two indoor garden railroad dioramas by the award-winning landscape architect Paul Busse, known for his design of the annual Holiday Train display at The New York Botanical Garden, as well as a collection of Madame Alexander First Lady dolls, and Pickles and Egg Cream, an installation of miniatures by Ruby G. Strauss that provide a peek into immigrant New York of the 1920s-1950s.
