No money? Gnome Matter!


One of the only good things about the recession is that prices have gone way down on flights and hotel rooms. (If you don’t believe me, ask the traveling gnome or William Shatner.) The summer is a great time to visit New York City. If you come in on the weekend there are fewer New Yorkers, since many of them go away on the weekends, so it is easier to get into popular restaurants (many of which have special recession-friendly specials). Secondly, you can enjoy free concerts, films, and my favorite midsummer treat--Shakespeare in the Park.

Of course, you’ll also want to come to the Museum of Jewish Heritage (which Time Out New York calls "one of the most moving cultural experiences in the city"). As an added incentive, on June 14, July 19, and August 2, we’ll be presenting free screenings* at 1 and 3 p.m. of From Swastika and Jim Crow, the film that inspired our new exhibit. No need to reserve, just drop in and enjoy the air conditioning and the amazing view.

*free with the price of admission
