So as March comes to a sad end New York City, the entire metro-region, is closed. The grim forecast is close to a thousand bars and restaurants won’t reopen at the end of April when restrictions are supposed to be lifted. Many other businesses won’t survive. Your favorite non-profit museums may also feel the pain. Some of you may be losing sleep wondering how you’ll keep it all together because you’re essentially jobless at the moment. Some of you may have already given all you can at this point, donating to many great causes. If you’re still doing well not worried where the next dollar is coming from consider helping those places you enjoy. Gift cards from restaurants, cafes or bars you like.
I’m a paying member of the New York Transit Museum. Fact is I had hoped to cover some of their stuff by now. Then shelter in place happened. The museum is doing its best to make the online experience more robust. They are also asking that folks Make a Gift, frankly a lot of revenue is being lost and no one wants to lose the museum.
So, if you can find something in the city you love that needs a little love, write that check.
