“From the Lower East Side to Washington Heights, a whole new world is always just a few blocks away in Manhattan,” said Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer. “I encourage all our cultural institutions to take advantage of this program and through it, help bring tourists and visitors into our neighborhoods for the unique sights, sounds, and tastes they can only find here.”
