New York City’s heatwave is affecting the most vulnerable and social lives.

The Brooklyn Museum will be closed Friday, July 8 through Sunday, July 10 due to an air-conditioning outage.

As New Yorkers look for shelter in cool indoor places during the lazy days of summer, this closure comes as a derailment for those who seek interesting air conditioned activities during the high temperature.

Fret not, the Museum promises to be up and running soon.  Most importantly, museum collections will be monitored during the outage to ensure sensitive material is unharmed.
