Plans were announced Friday by Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Michael Bloomberg to construct the museum on 125th Street between Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard and Lenox Avenue/Malcolm X Boulevard.
Officials said the Museum of the Urban Civil Rights Experience will use Harlem as a lens through which to view the wider civil rights experience in cities across America.
The museum will be housed on a 42,000-square-foot stretch of property that will also contain a new national headquarters for the National Urban League.
Mixed-income housing and multi-level retail space will also be provided for after groundbreaking occurs in 2015 (source).
