A city partnership with the Children's Museum of Manhattan is bringing a part of the museum straight to hundreds of children living in a shelter.
The Department of Homeless Services cut the ribbon Friday on a hands-on learning hub at the Hamilton Family Residences, where 155 families live.
The goal is to brighten the lives of children there by promoting healthy lifestyles and literacy.
It's already an inspriation to residents, Jessica Jordan and her daughter, India.
"Before it came it was like kind of dull here. It didn't have all these decorations and you know I feel like it helps even the kids with healthy eating," Jordan said.
This is the 15th learning hub installed at a DHS shelter with more to come this year. Residents will also be given a one-year membership to the Children's Museum of Manhattan through the partnership.
