    • Adopt A Building Program

    • Translate this page:
    • Suggested donation levels range from $100 to “purchase” an apartment to $1,000 for a small commercial building, low-rise apartment building, or warehouse. Donors will receive a title deed in exchange for their purchase. Your donation will support the ongoing care and maintenance of The Panorama of the City of New York.

      The last comprehensive update to the Panorama was in 1992. Since then, the museum has made several additions including Citi Field, Yankee Stadium Brooklyn Bridge Park, and Battery Park City among others as part of the Adopt A Building program.

      At this time, the Museum is not making any new additions to the model. Generic buildings (i.e. homes, brownstones, housing projects, schools, etc.), will remain as they are. Individual buildings will not be altered to reflect specific changes (i.e. Additions, renovations, building color, etc.)

      As part of the Adopt-A-Building program, we are collecting your New York Stories! We would love to hear your New York story in connection to your purchase.  We have been receiving interesting anecdotes from New Yorkers all over the country and the world. We may link your story on our social media and website. You can enter your story into the Adopt-a-Building form as you make your purchase.

      Click here to fill out the form and adopt a building today!

      For more information on Panorama sponsorships, please contact our Development Manager, Sydney Gilbert at 718.592.9700 x128 or
