They turned out in the thousands – an estimated 38,000 – for the annual Museum Mile Festival June 11 along a vehicle-free Fifth Avenue from 110th down to 82nd with nine museums open from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Festival-goers enjoyed an event that appealed to people of all ages with face-painting, chalk-drawing, and jugglers making it a fun and creative evening for all. Admission to every museum was free, giving those who have never been to some of them or those seeking a return visit an opportunity to sample the Upper East Side’s finest.
