Steinway will give a tour of its NY factory in June. We need to select a weekday and the tour begins 9 AM sharp. We can have a group of 20.


Who's interested?

Hi fingers,

Count us in! Is this specific to PW only? Also, hopefully it will be after the last day of school.

Laura and I might be able to make it. I have to find out when we're choosing the pianos for the concert but I'm sure we can work around it. Is there a fee for this? Laura's husband would also be there, and maybe mine (plus baby). Thanks for arranging this, fingers. Too bad it couldn't later in the week so more out of town people could attend.

The tour is free. smile
The only available dates for that week were either Mon. or Tues. I chose Tues.

I'll check into potential safety issues regarding your baby. It is VERY active with machinery, tools , debris etc.

fingers

I'm pretty sure children are not permitted. You're out on the active floor in the midst of sanding, etc.; it's not the kind of tour where you walk down a hall and look through windows (it's almost 150 years old!).

Not only would a babe-in-arms breathe dust, but there are lots of stairs which can get slippery from sawdust. You'll need both hands for safety. Regardless of permissions, I'd recommend not bringing the baby.

Fingers, I'm still in. CY-The factory is very clean and there is no saw dust or debis around however they want everyone wearing eye protection and they give out safety glasses. If a baby is held and can wear them perhaps its OK. Frank- They do not allow pictures because it disturbs the workers. Fingers said it starts at 9.

Hmmm... maybe my mother can look after the baby if she is in town then. I'll see when she flies in. Otherwise I can't go. frown

It's set!
Steinway NY factory tour on Tues. June19, 2007.

Time: 9 AM Sharp, Length: about 3 hours
Place: Steinway factory located at:
One Steinway Place
38th Street and 19th Ave.
Long Island City, NY 11105(in queens)

For SAFETY reasons, babies will not be allowed.
As a parent and having taken the tour before, I personally believe that it is a wise policy.

Regards,
fingers
