Spring cleaning can be done all year-round and as everyone starts packing up their short-sleeves and shorts, don’t forget that FiDi has a donation drop off location at the long-standing St. Margaret’s House Thrift Shop. They accept donations, all year long.
Once Spring rolls around, families around the City begin the annual rite of Spring cleaning. One of the biggest challenges about Spring cleaning in NYC is locating a drop off location for all of your families “oldies but goodies”. St. Margaret’s House is a local thrift shop that accepts donations of clothes, books, DVD’s, home goods or toys for all ages. After closing for the Winter season, they reopened in March and ready to accept donations and sell some great treasures. It’s a tiny little shop and they would love support from the neighborhood. Plus, all donations are eligible for a tax receipt.
Open for Business: Tuesday through Friday
Address: 49 Fulton Street
Hours of Operation: 11:00am – 3:00pm
FiDi Families Insiders: A drop-off donation box is outside of the thrift shop and items can be placed in the bin and a tax donation receipt can be picked up the following day.

The Lower Manhattan Coastal Resiliency (LMCR) Project is an integrated coastal protection initiative aimed at reducing flood risk due to coastal storms and sea level rise in Lower Manhattan. The LMCR Project spans the Lower Manhattan coast from Montgomery Street to the northern end of Battery Park City and seeks to improve access to the waterfront and enhance public spaces in the community.
The LMCR Project is identified as a priority of the City of New York as outlined in the 2015 One New York: The Plan for a Strong and Just City, and coastal flood risk reduction for this area was a key component of the Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery Lower Manhattan NY Rising Community Reconstruction Plan. The LMCR Project builds upon several years of community planning efforts to improve the waterfront and additional support from the LMCR Project came from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) National Disaster Resilience Competition to address sea level rise, storm surge, and other impacts of climate change.
The project advances the City’s commitment to protect vulnerable communities through a fair and equitable community-based plan for resilience, recovery, and vitality. To develop and implement coastal protection measures that effectively meet the needs of the community, the City is working in partnership with many residents, community organizations, and businesses to assess design concepts. Residents will be able to provide critical input to shape the project through workshops, focus groups, and numerous other engagement activities throughout the duration of the project.
Date: Thursday, October 6th
Time: 6pm – 8pm
Location: 6 River Terrace (Community Center)
FiDi Families Insiders: Refreshments and childcare provided.
