Seaport Museum Rescued by MCNY!Posted: September 7, 2011
From the NYT:
The Museum of the City of New York will take over the beleaguered Seaport Museum New York with $2 million in starting funds from the corporation in charge of developing Lower Manhattan, under a deal made public Wednesday by the city and state.
“We are confident that the way has been paved for a smooth transition to new leadership,” Frank J. Sciame, the chairman of the Seaport Museum, said in an e-mail. “With the challenging financial environment our city and country are facing, and the fact that our two institutions already share compatible missions, this is a relationship that makes good sense.”
