Greater Astoria Historical Society Fundraising post-Storm Ida Flood Damage to Collection


I’ve long been on the Board of Trustees at the Greater Astoria Historical Society, in my neighborhood of Astoria, Queens. We lost our physical museum/lecture space at the end of 2018, with our vast collection (books, relics, maps, media, etc.) going into storage. Storm Ida at the beginning of September was tragic for so many in the New York City area (and beyond), and we are grateful to all be OK, but one of our storage spaces flooded, ruining and molding much that was close to the ground. We’ve spent this month – with the help of generous volunteers – sorting, disposing, trying to save, and moving what we could, but there is still much to be done. We are raising funds to further this urgent work (and thank those who have already given).

Anything you might be able to donate is appreciated, as is sharing our information and interacting with us on social media. We have held online programs since the pandemic began, and will one day, get back to in-person events and tours!
