Matthew Bronfman Says

I've been on the board of the 92nd Street Y for 16 years. I think it's one of most important, and largest, community centers in North America. It happens to be a Jewish institution, but it's really a resource for everybody and anybody in New York, whether you're talking about our poetry programs, Jewish programs, health clubs, camps or nursery school. We practically serve some of our patrons from before they're born—through our prenatal classes—to their final years with our famous seniors program, which has octogenarian members who are over 100 years old.

The speakers at the 92nd Street Y are phenomenal. I was actually in Uruguay three weeks ago and somebody was telling me that the week before, they had gone to the Lyrics & Lyricists program at the 92nd Street Y. Music, poetry, arts, politics—the number of speakers that comes through the institution are so numerous and all so phenomenal, that whether it's literature or international affairs that you're looking for, you can find it here. We also share live broadcasts of our programs with other community centers and various universities around North America. We're just very, very proud of our programming and think it's a jewel, a real jewel, in New York City.
