Brooklyn Museum

Location: 200 Eastern Pkwy, Brooklyn, NY 11238, United States

Brooklyn Museum is one of the top tourist destinations in New York City. It’s a great place to visit for any age because it has exhibits geared towards children and families and displays that are perfect for those seeking out iconic pieces from areas like Ancient Greece and Egypt. The museum is a veritable maze of old and new, and it’s not difficult to find a little something there for everyone’s taste. That’s useful because the Brooklyn Museum has so many things going on that it is impossible to see everything in just one visit.

There is so much to expect in the Brooklyn Museum. The building itself is an architectural wonder: with four different areas built from individual artists’ work, it’s an inspiring space that contains galleries throughout both floors and the rooftop garden. The building is also a beautiful tribute to the city, making Brooklyn Museum one of the top museums to visit in New York City. The collection is expansive, covering everything from natural history to art and culture. Some events highlight certain exhibitions throughout the year, but the building itself is always open to visitors. People visiting Brooklyn Museum will notice similarities between its architecture and the city’s growth.

Quality rug care is essential for the upkeep of any New York home and Haim Shemesh at Sunlight Fine Rug Care & Restoration does not disappoint. I highly recommend them!

Gabriel J. Letizia, Ph.D

“Dear Haim,
It has been so very busy here, thank God, that I never had the chance to formally thank you for the absolutely beautiful job you and your team did with our rugs and sofa. I know when a job is superior and such is the case, much to my surprise, upon entering the apartment after you completed the work.

Thank you again – you will ever be our service provider etc…“

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

A few weeks ago, I had Haim Shemesh clean my sofa & I was very pleased. He was professional, the price was reasonable & my sofa looks brand new again!

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

I had Haim Shemesh from Sunlight clean all my area rugs. He did a fabulous job! They are all handmade Orientals and he took them to a place that soaks them in a tub and hand washes them the way it’s supposed to be done. They look so much better and brighter Haim came to my apt to give me an estimate, took the rugs, then delivered them back to me a week later. He even helped me set them back up, including moving furniture around to do so. Prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend doing business with him!
