The Children Museum of Manhattan’s annual family fundraiser, “Sunday Funday,” held on January 28 at Chelsea Piers, featured a rendering of the museum’s new building at 361 Central Park West. The model was crafted by Matt Long, an award-winning sand sculptor who lives on Staten Island. The new building, on the site of the former home of the First Church of Christ, Scientist, is expected to open in late 2021. Until then, CMOM remains open at 212 West 83rd Street.
