Museum Mile on Fifth Avenue is opening its doors to the public, for free--that's right, free. The treasures that New York City has to offer in cultural gems like the Met and the Guggenheim will be open to all, free of charge, for a three-hour stretch today. And that's along with a 23-block-long stretch of 5th avenue turned into a pedestrian promenade. Only in New York.
