    The museum is located on West 53rd Street in New York.

    The "Sculpture Garden" referred to is the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden.

    the "female figurine in the pond" is "The River", by Aristide Maillol.

    The piece seen at 00:24 is "She-Goat", by Pablo Picasso.

    The piece at 01:31 is "Man in the Open Air", by Elie Nadelman.
