Craig Newmark New York Tri-State Chapter

Welcome to the New York Tri-State Chapter!

Hello, friend!

Thank you for visiting YOUR Blue Star Families Chapter page! The New York Tri-State Chapter has such a singular style and so many unique opportunities to enjoy our city’s treasures, together. From a walk through beautiful Central Park to a night on the town seeing a Broadway show or watching the NYC Fleet Week’s Parade of Ships from Fort Hamilton’s iconic viewpoint, there is always something to appreciate about the Big Apple and its surrounding areas.

Blue Star Families has partnered with organizations that want to support our military families and offer fun, free events. These opportunities are a great way to make the most of your time here and connect you to your community. Be sure to like our Chapter Facebook page to stay current on all of the upcoming programming and meet-ups.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
