Bridge and Games is our name.

We are at 87th Street and 3rd Avenue. It will be our only home for in-person Bridge, Canasta, Mah Jongg, Scrabble, Backgammon, and Euro-style board games for the next several months.

We Have Expanded. We are now on both the third and fourth floors…302A and 405.

Duplicate Bridge will be on the 3rd floor.
Supervised Bridge will be on either the 3rd or 4th floor.
Mah Jongg and Canasta will be on the 4th floor.
Scrabble will be on the 4th floor.
Backgammon will be on the 3rd floor.

Even when the pandemic is just a bad memory, masking will not only be permitted, but encouraged, especially during flu season or whenever there is an outbreak of colds within our community.

We have learned much from the pandemic. In order to help mitigate the spread of any viral or bacterial air borne disease, weather permitting, we will leave our windows open and our three ceiling fans running. In addition, we have three state-of-the-art, powerful HEPA filters to aid in sterilizing and circulating the air up to four times an hour
