Today, May 15, FA launches its petition [which it hopes will be signed by ALL New Yorkers] urging NY AG Letitia James to enforce Ch. 476 of the Laws of 1893, which required the Met Museum to be free of all charge to New Yorkers. FA’s petition can be found on this link:
Sometime ago, FA corresponded with AG James’ office to urge her to enforce the NYS law. She did not respond.
FA looks to all New Yorkers to insist that “the people’s lawyer” act on our behalf and require the Met Museum, and many of 12 other City-funded park institutions, to abide by the provisions of contracts or NYS laws requiring free admission to New Yorkers [and especially our schools] in reciprocity for some form of economic forgiveness.
