Key to the City starts today

We received our beautiful, custom Key to the City yesterday from the folks at Creative Time.  Feeling empowered and ready to open up that hidden door in the Brooklyn Museum.  We also installed and verified the locked box inside the Freshkills Park tour bus.  Tour attendees who hold the Key to the City: just let the tour guide know, and he/she will present the box and its exciting contents to you.  We think this will be a really fun and enriching complement to the tours.  (A note on this: we’ve reserved a limited number of seats on every public bus tour this summer for holders of the Key to the City.  If you’re interested in joining a 10am or 1pm tour on 6/5, 6/19, 7/10, 7/24, 8/7 or 8/21 and you’ve got the Key, email doug.elliott@parks.nyc.gov with the subject line Key to the City, to check availability.)

You can participate in Paul Ramirez Jonas’ summer-long project by being bestowed a key at the Times Square kiosk for the project, which opens today at 6pm and will start operating daily tomorrow through June 27th.  You can also volunteer to be an official “key master,” distributing keys in the heart of Times Square.
