Discovering the New York Police Museum

For enthusiasts, here is the New York Police Museum!

Not far from Wall Street, in southern Manhattan, the New York Police Museum is a temple dedicated to the glory of the NYPD police, which is very well known in particular thanks to the many American films that showcase it. Located in the building of a former police station with three floors, the museum Founded in 1999 is relatively small but very dense. But it is meant to be exhaustive, retracing the history of the "Finest" as they are called in New York, from the local police that it was in its origins in 1845 to the mini-FBI that it has become today. And especially after September 11, 2001. This museum is in a way a show in its own right, a flashy showcase, but very interesting!
