Exhibit in LIC Highlights Work of City's Oldest Charity Hospital
A new exhibit in Long Island City is floating its way into the spotlight to highlight the work of the city's oldest charity hospital.
"The Floating Hospital—A Legacy of Caring Since 1866" Exhibit is now on display at the CitiCenter in LIC.
Visitors can see 150 Years of memorabilia and pictures of the work the non-profit has collected throughout the years.
The presentation is the culmination of a year long fellowship lead by the CitiCenter for Culture and Queens Library,
with the assistance of Graduate Fellows from Queens College and Saint John’s University.
"That was kind of the impetus for us to look at our archives and put together an exhibit that showcased our history," said Director of Outreach and Communications for the Floating Hospital Steve Whalen.
The exhibit will be on display until June.
