The Greater New York Councils, Boy Scouts of America will be moving its offices to suite 7820 located on the 78th floor of the Empire State Building effective January 30, 2012.
As a part of the Boy Scouts Lease with the Empire State Building, the building had a relocation option they executed this past fall forcing the council into other space within the building. In cooperation with the building the Boy Scouts have been able to reduce the total office space and the cost associated with the lease by 30%.
To better serve the Scouting Families in New York City the National Scout Shop will be moving out of the Empire State Building. The Scout Shop located in the council office closed on January 20th, a new street level store will be opening this spring within a few blocks of the Empire State Building. To assist Scouters with advancement, uniforms and Scout Supplies while the new store is being constructed the following options will be available. Advancement sheets can be turned in at the council office, Staten Island Scout Shop or the Alpine Scout Camp, basic advancement items can be purchased at these locations as well. A selection of Scout uniforms will be available at the Alpine Scout Camp, effective February 3, 2012.
