Murray Hill residents invited to explore area’s past

April 16, 2017 by  

During World War I, soldiers, marines, and sailors departed from New York on their way to fight in Europe, and members of the public from Murray Hill are invited to come and learn more about the experiences of these young men.

The New York Transit Museum will be hosting a special event that marks the centennial of The Great War. Participants can pack a picnic basket and retrace the route these military personnel would have taken on their way for training in Bronx’s Van Cortland Park.

Participants will ride out to the park where they can explore the grounds and, if they wish, they can opt to participate in a walking tour that will allow them to view some of the area’s sites that were important long ago. This portion of the activity will be led by a representative of the Bronx County Historical Society, and all are invited. Those who plan an event like this can use booklet printing to provide brochures that give further details about the experiences these men would have had before being deployed overseas.

The Nostalgia Ride to Van Cortland Park will depart from the museum on May 6 at 11:00 am and it will return in the afternoon. Guests can opt to take part in the guided tour or simply enjoy the ride. Additional information can be found on the institution’s website.

Anyone who is interested in lending their support or finding other ways they can help can do so by contacting jfriedlin@hungrymktg.com.

Murray Hill residents to get a unique view of local area landmarks

November 18, 2016 by  

Nature lovers and miniature train enthusiasts alike are invited to a display to be held in the Murray Hill area that will showcase the best of both worlds.

The New York Botanical Garden has recreated over 150 New York City landmarks. Some, such as the Rockefeller Center and the Statue of Liberty, are well known, while others are more under the radar. They are all reproduced on a miniature scale using an assortment of natural items, including nuts, bark, leaves, berries, and other materials from plants and other natural sources.

Model trains, in large scale size, will be traveling throughout this tiny world. An additional 3,000 square feet have been added to the display, which will allow for even more trains, tracks, and bridges. At the end of the line, there is a tribute to Coney Island, complete with small sized rides and architecture. All of this will be lit so it can be enjoyed in daylight or the dark. A printer can utilize photos of a display like this on holiday cards and other items it produces for an attraction.

In addition to the miniature model of NYC, there will be music, poetry readings, and activities for the kids.

The event gets underway tomorrow, November 19, and runs until January 16. Tickets start at $20 for adults and $10 for children, and, according to the gardens, it is advised that those who plan on visiting purchase their passes ahead of time.

More information is available on the New York Botanical Garden’s website.
