Paley Center

Goodman Media International is handling PR for the first-ever PaleyWKND media, sports, entertainment and gaming festival designed to help revive midtown Manhattan.

Slated for Oct. 1-2, the free, family-friendly event is expected to draw tens of thousands of visitors to midtown and The Paley Museum, which is located on 52nd St between 5th and 6th Aves.

Mayor Eric Adams said events like PaleyWKND “further solidifies New York as the greatest city in the world when it comes to culture and cultural opportunities.” It also will “bolster our economic recovery after two years of a pandemic.”

A signature event at PaleyWKND will be the first-ever “Crown Jewels of Sports” exhibit featuring the NFL’s Vince Lombardi Trophy, NHL’s Stanley Cup, NBA’s Larry O’Brien Trophy and MLB’s Commissioner’s Trophy.

There also will be exhibits from Meta, Nickelodeon, ESPN, Hearst, Telemundo, Hasbro, Bloomberg, Warner Bros. Discovery, Nintendo, Fox, Mattel/American Girl, Altice USA, New York Red Bulls and the World Surf League.

Maureen Reidy, CEO of the Paley Center, promises “once-in-a-lifetime, memorable experiences for little kids, big kids and kids at heart.”

GMI’s Lisa Taylor is handling PR for the event.
