"Battery Park City and the Authority are not just about the buildings – it’s about the character of the community that has developed over time. Public space has had a new renaissance in New York City, but here in Battery Park City is where it started."

Last week, the Battery Park City Authority joined the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust to announce free Community Membership for all Battery Park City residents through June 2018. This program, marking the 20th Anniversary of the Museum, includes free admission, discounted or free program tickets, and more – all that’s required is proof of BPC residency.

“As New York’s Holocaust memorial museum, the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust is extremely fortunate to be situated in Battery Park City, poised between the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island and the Freedom Tower,” said Museum President & CEO Michael S. Glickman. “We are very grateful to our neighbors for helping this institution to flourish and, as the Museum approaches its 20th anniversary, we want to take this opportunity to express appreciation through the gift of a membership program exclusive to BPC residents.”

“The Museum of Jewish Heritage offers visitors an incredible opportunity to learn about the atrocities of the past in a setting that never fails to provide hope for the future,” said Shari C. Hyman, President & Chief Operating Officer, Battery Park City Authority. “By providing free membership to Battery Park City residents, Michael and his team are providing a unique chance for our community to have open access to what the Museum has to offer. Our shared hope is that greater local engagement will yield an even larger museum community beyond Battery Park City’s borders.”
