The rise of California’s Silicon Valley meant the end of NYC’s high-tech golden age. In more recent years, however, the city has seen a tech revival, with many Web and mobile startups calling the city home (the low physical footprint of online businesses is some defense against a city that has seen spiraling rents as its industrial zones are relentlessly converted into luxury condos). Silicon City confines the dark years of the ’70s and ’80s, and the subsequent boom and bust of the great dot-com crash, to a small video exhibit, before moving on to a much sunnier and larger display focused on the present day. This features scenes from Manhattan and Brooklyn, boasting about the location of companies such as Etsy, Shapeways, and Tumblr, and showcasing some of their wares. But then, it wouldn’t really be NYC without a little bit of braggadocio.
