NEW-YORK HISTORICAL SOCIETY ‘VERY EAGER’ TO SERVE LOCALS, BENEFIT HURRICANE VICTIMS TODAY

Got cabin fever? Tired of playing the same board games with your kids, whose schools remain closed because of the hurricane? The New-York Historical Society on 79th Street and Central Park West is open and wants to entertain you, while benefiting hurricane victims. Admission is “pay-as-you-wish” with proceeds going to Hurricane Sandy relief. (the historical society library remains closed)

Just got this email:

“We are gearing up to open at 10 am this morning, closing at 6 pm with activities focused on children and families.  Games, scavenger hunts, and our special “Walk in My Shoes” tour of WW II & NYC designed especially for young people.  For very young children there will be storytelling throughout the day.  Our restaurant, Caffe Storico, will also be open and we have healthy options for children in our DiMenna Children’s History Museum.  Visitors will pay as they wish, with proceeds going to help those hurt by the storm.  Any assistance you can provide in getting the word out would be much more than appreciated.  My colleagues have made huge efforts to come in this morning and we are all very eager to serve our community!”
