Lunch Together

June 18 at 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

A wonderful way to connect, learn, and eat, this year’s Lunch Together program will include engaging performances and presentations. All are preceded by an hour of schmoozing and noshing. Try it—you’ll like it! A dairy lunch will be served, and the programs are open to all.

A contribution of $10 per person is suggested. RSVP to lunchtogether@crsnyc.org 

This time: The Amusement Park

Step right up! Experience the electrifying, never-before-told true story of amusement parks, from the Middle Ages to present day and meet the colorful (and sometimes criminal) characters who are responsible for their enchanting charms.

Stephen M. Silverman, author of The Amusement Park, will touch on the Manhattan, Brooklyn, and New Jersey parks of the past, Coney Island, and Solomon Bloom— the 23-year-old Jewish prodigy behind the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair Midway, which got the amusement park business going in America.
