MIDTOWN WEST. Founded by William S. Paley, this museum aims to preserve defining examples of the two mediums. More than 140,000 television and radio programs and advertisements are catalogued, all of which you can easily access with a library reservation made at the front desk. A daily schedule of programming is complemented by regular seminars featuring performers, directors, journalists, writers, and critics.
