It’s been a particularly trying time but even more so for parents of school age kids in the summer. These months are challenging enough as kids are not in school but usually there is a camp option. These have been limited. And with reduced entertainment options it’s gotten even harder.
Thankfully last week some outdoor pools re-opened. Areas with open air pools for the public included: Bronx (Crotona Park, Haffen Park, Mullaly Park), Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens (Astoria Park, Fisher, Liberty) and Staten Island.
Now we are looking at museums. Not for right now but hopefully by the end of the month. On August 29th plans are set for the Metropolitan Museum of Art to open, providing precautions are taken to protect staff members and the public. Two earlier dates were given but then taken back but hopefully this one will stick. Also set to open will be the Whitney Museum of American Art and an outdoor exhibition curated by the New York Historical Society.
