Where Do the Children Play?: Closures in New York Museums and Parks

These are difficult economic times. In addition to the many other industries facing troubling decisions, historic and cultural institutions across the country are facing cutbacks and even closures.

Today New York State released information about numerous closures within its 125-year-old State Park system. Many have already published the press release and various reactions. Advocacy group Parks & Trails New York, our local Public Radio, the Albany Times Union, and even fellow New York History blogger John Warren have all carried the news.

Now is an important time for you to let your voice be heard on the subject as well. We hope that you will share your support for all of New York State's Parks and Historic Sites.
