Museos Unite reader Ann sent me this link today about museum directors in NYC living tax-free in museum-owned apartments--really, really nice apartments. (They are either at or near the museum, and are used for entertaining as well as housing the director, which is why the whole thing works.) People (not the government) seem to think that directors living in $5 million apartments is tad on the excessive side.
What do you think?
In the past, more employees than just the directors used to live at the museum. Check out this story from the Museum of Natural History’s blog.
Pretty cool that employees used to have the option to live at the museum if they were strapped for cash. Shame that the practice does not continue.
Or does it? More on that tomorrow…
