WWing sites in NYC?

Anything woodworking related that I should make a point to see while I'm in New York City? I'll probably hit the MoMA to see some of Sam Maloof's work, but other than that I'm open to suggestions. Thanks for any ideas you have.

The elevators in the Chrysler Building.

Lobby was closed, but I could see marquetry on the doors that looked nice. MoMA was an absolute madhouse so I didn't go in this trip. Not much ww'ing was seen other than the furniture in Crate & Barrel.

Kinda neat to see once, but it's not the kind of thing I could live in or around. Too busy/gaudy, ie. Art Deco.

If you're into marquetry, try the Met (Metropolitan Museum of Art). I wish I could remember the details (and the Met's web site is useless), but there's an entire room done in marquetry, brought over from Europe somewhere.

Second the Met recommendation. They have a ton of furniture from all periods and styles. One of my favorite all time pieces is there. I called the Met and the curator was very helpful - sent me all sorts of information on the piece, pictures, articles and all.
