Good Morning Neighbors!

I hope this newsletter finds you well as we are all dealing with the air quality right now. As of one hour ago ABC news urged New Yorkers to stay indoors and avoid going outside. We know this can be hard with kids so here are some indoor events you can attend with a mix of outdoor events happening. Stay safe and if you have a covid mask somewhere laying around-this is the time to use it.
Have a wonderful week!
