Miracles poster
New Yorkers have witnessed historic events in every major U.S. sport. From boxing, horse racing and soccer to basketball, baseball, football and hockey. From bicycling and golf to tennis and running. New York has hosted two Winter Olympic Games in Lake Placid in 1932 and 1980. While the sports, athletes and events change, the constant is New York.

     Guest curator Mark McGuire, columnist for the Times Union, faced a dauting task in choosing his Top Ten list of New York's greatest sporting events. His picks are supported by historic objects from the Museum's collections, the Baseball, Basketball and Pro Football Halls of Fame, and private lenders. Visitors can create their own top ten list by voting on a computer interactive.
