"Hidden in Midtown is a spot where our furry friends are celebrated with art and activities! It’s the American Kennel Club’s ‘Museum of the Dog. The museum is celebrating its 40th anniversary with a new exhibit highlighting the collectors who made the museum what it is today. New York Living’s Marysol Castro checked out everything the museum has to offer!"
