Our first event of the New Year will be on February 7th, 2013. We will visit the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens. The Museum’s core exhibit, Behind The Scenes, is a one-of-a-kind experience that immerses you in the creative and technical process of producing, promoting and presenting films and TV shows Occupying 15,000 square feet, it reveals the skills, material resources and artistic decisions that go into making moving images.

We will have lunch, then tour the FDR Four Freedoms Park. Just opened on October 24th as a spiritual memorial to FDR, it is located along the waterfront of Roosevelt Island. The memorial was conceived in 1973, designed by Louis Kahn just before his death in 1974, and finally funded after the turn of the century.

The tickets are $68 per person. Signup at the Wednesday meeting or call Bill Winship at [enkode text=”– Sorry, Javascript must be enabled to display phone number –“]203.655.3530[/enkode] with your reservation.
