Episode 11: Repurposed Gems for Non-Boring People (PART 1) with The New York Adventure Club

This week is Part 1 of a series regarding repurposed and ecofriendly places in New York City! Make sure to subscribe to the podcast so you do not miss the second half of Corey's amazing insight next week!


The Hand Me Club knows a lot of tourists are journeying to NYC this holiday season, so we get a little off topic this week with the beginning of a two part series talking about ecofriendly, repurposed and interesting sites in the city with Corey Schneider from the New York Adventure Club. Corey joins Lindsay to talk about his path to starting the club and touches on some of the best repurposed historic buildings in New York City and the value of restoring historic structures and giving them new life.



A few other things we mention in the episode:

Church of the Intercession

Synagogue in Mansion in Port Washington and (NYAC Tours!)

Harkness House

Commonwealth Fund

Mmmuseum

Elevator Museum in Long Island City (RIP)

Troll Museum (RIP, Lindsay is actually quoted in the NYT article about this!)
