Our February scam prevention forum was well attended and we all learned a lot. Thank you to Officer Scott K. for his time. We will have him back in April. One scam awareness tip: when you answer a live or robo call, NEVER NEVER respond with “yes.” Scammers can record your voice and use it to place illegal orders. If you want more information on this recent “Yes” scam, stop at Pier 55.

Parking at Pier 55

If you are attending an event at Pier 55, please park on our assigned side and not on the Pottery Museum section. Park in front of Pier 55 if possible. Stop in at the front desk if you need clarification.

Find the Leprechauns
March 1-17 at Pier 55

Leprechauns will be on the loose daily at the Pier 55 March 1-17. Why? St. Patrick is having a Leprechaun Treasure Hunt. Simply find the Leprechaun picture (upper left) located some where throughout the building (NOT inside Pottery Museum or Fiesta Cancun) and give it to Program Coordinator Stef Braun for a prize. Leprechauns are tricky, so you may have to search a little bit. Then - on Friday, March 17, someone will find THIS pot of gold!
