About Chess NYC
Founded in 2007 Chess NYC has established itself as a leader in chess excellence and education. The company-wide philosophy is to emphasize sport and fun and provide as much chess instruction as a child can bear—but not overload them. By providing supervised, spirited play, each student associates Chess NYC with fun, and therefore larger numbers of them ultimately excel or at least become proficient in the great, significant, game of chess.

About Children’s Museum of The East End (CMEE)
The Children’s Museum of the East End started with a conversation around a kitchen table in Amagansett. In 1997, seven mothers gathered weekly because they were very disappointed at the few educational opportunities for children on the East End of Long Island. Inspired by the excitement they and their children experienced at the new children’s museums that were opening and helping to define communities around the country, they began meeting regularly at each other’s homes. They hit on the idea of launching a new organization that would teach children about the East End and world around them by promoting learning through play.

With the support of hundreds of stakeholders in the community, CMEE opened its current home in Bridgehampton in October 2005. With over 7,000 square feet of exhibition and program space designed by Lee Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership, CMEE soon became one of the most visited museums in Eastern Long Island. CMEE upholds its mission “to spark imagination and foster learning for children of all backgrounds and abilities and to build strong connections within the East End community by providing playful experiences” by presenting educational exhibits and programs and by partnering with other arts and social service organizations to address issues that concern families in the community.
