New York is known for its cultural diversity.

But America's biggest city hasn’t had a museum dedicated solely to Arab and Islamic art, until now.

The museum’s founder is Mohammed Al Thani, a Qatari art enthusiast, who says the museum is needed to help foster better understanding at a time of rising Islamophobia.

Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports from New York.
