  • An Evening With Moe Resner: NYGPS Meeting at Finnerty's 11/19/2019

    The New York Giants Preservation Society's first meeting in quite some time will take place at Finnerty’s on Tuesday, November 19th, at 6PM. Our guest speaker will be the renaissance man himself, Morris (Moe) Resner. Resner, an original NYGPS member, will be discussing a new film produced and directed by Janko Radosavljevic, entitled: Moe Resner 1957 Baseball. The movie will show Resner’s passion for the fabled Polo Grounds. Mo will be discussing his times at the Polo Grounds including the last game the NY Giants ever played at the famed ball park on September 29, 1957. Resner recently took the same subway to the PG location, and climbed down the Brush Stairway accompanied by Radosavljevic, as if the clock had been turned back over 60 years ago. The banter between them could only be imagined as Resner has the gift of gab!! The short film will soon be available on Amazon. Resner will also speak about The End of an Era, which depicts the final game the NY Giants played in NYC. Resner, a very young man was able to film the game, basically on the field. The video resides in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown NY. Resner will be making both videos available for purchase.The night will be one to remember for sure!!

    In addition, Finnerty’s gives us the use of its backroom for the event. For your enjoyment, libations will be available at the Happy Hour rate until 8PM. Drinks specials are:
    $5 draft beers
    $6 mixed well cocktails
    $7 glasses of wine

    Please RSVP ASAP to me. All the best, Gary

    Unable to get to NYC and attend, but I wish everyone the best. This is so cool. I will definitely be getting copies of these videos.

      RIP to Finnertys. I was able to get there back in ‘17 or so while I was in The City for business. Sad that it was a COVID casualty.
