Hispanic Society Museum and Library  –By Tom McDonald, NYC Transit retiree  

If you take a trip to Upper Manhattan, to an area called Audubon Terrace, there is a fabulous showcase full of history and wonder situated within the environs of Boricua College. The Hispanic Society of America Museum and Library, located on Broadway between 155 and 156 Streets, offers up some wonderful history from Spain and Latin America. It was founded in 1904 by Archer Milton Huntington, who sought to establish a free public museum and library that would study, through art and sculpture, the culture of Spain, Latin America, and the Philippines. More than a century later, with a statue of Castilian nobleman and military leader El Cid seemingly standing guard outside, one can see that Huntington achieved this goa.

The Museum and Library collections cover nearly every aspect of art and culture in Spain, Portugal, Latin America, and the Philippines into the 20th century. The scope of the collection of Hispanic works is second only to that of ones in Spain itself. Detailed sculptures take up much of the main floor and epic paintings line the mezzanine balcony just above it. Masters like El Greco and Goya are represented, as are various other lesser known artists. Upon entering the main hall with the mezzanine above, the feeling of an ancient culture is palpable. The reddish-brown walls above play off the decorative arches that line the ground floor in a way that is both visceral and imaginative. Of all the smaller museums that I have visited, the Hispanic Society Museum has the greatest feel to it, one that inspires thoughts of the times represented.    

There is a featured gallery room to the right of the main hall and at the time of my visit, the walls of this gallery featured absolutely stunning murals by Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida (1863-1923), under the title “Vision of Spain.” By viewing the 360 degree panorama images in the gallery, you can experience the way Sorolla tells the story of the Spanish people in graphic detail.

Rooms adjoining the mezzanine showcase porcelain plates and vases and house more mundane things like storage trunks and furniture from as far back as the 17th century. The museum is complimented by a research library which contains manuscripts, atlases, charts, and rare books. The Hispanic Society holds a number of learning programs, concerts, and lectures inside the museum proper. It is a remarkable resource for anyone who wishes to learn of the cultures of Spanish and Latin America.   

The 1 train to 157 St or the C train to 155 St leave you just a short walk from the Hispanic Society of America Museum and Library. The M4 and M5 buses stop at 155th Street and Broadway, as well.
