A Message from the Academy

Dear Members of the Academy Community:

As an organization that has called New York City home for nearly 200 years, we care deeply about the residents of New York and its surrounding areas. We sincerely hope that our members and larger community, as well as their friends and family, are safe. Our sympathies are with those who suffered storm damage, and we hope that those affected are getting the help they need. We have also heard that some important scientific experiments have been affected by power outages and damage, so our thoughts are with the members of the scientific community who have been adversely impacted.

After being closed for a week due to flooding, the Academy re-opened this morning (Nov. 5) and has resumed operation. We did not sustain any lasting damage from the storm and are now fully functional. If you attempted to call or email our offices last week your message may not have been received due to the power outages. If you have not heard back from us, please reach out again and we'll be in touch with you promptly.

We look forward to seeing you soon, either virtually or in person, and again we extend our wishes for your safety over the coming weeks.

Sincerely,

Ellis Rubinstein
President & CEO
