Cornucopia’s travel guide

New York

New York is called the capital of the world for a reason: in some way it contains every nation. From the Metropolitan Museum's fantastically refurbished Islamic Galleries to the downtown Turkish fine dining, there is more than enough to keep even the most discerning of connoisseurs busy.

What you will see

New York may not have the longest and deepest connection to Turkey, but as one of the great cities of the world, it has attracted a great number of Turkish and Ottoman citizens, and their art and culture.

The late nineteenth and early twentieth century saw the growth and development of the collections of what is today the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Collectors like JP Morgan did much to gather Byzantine and Islamic artefacts, making the collection one of the finest in the world. The reopening of the Islamic wing of the museum in 2011 was a major event.
