Event description
Join us for a screening and Q&A with the filmmaker and the film star Nelson Molina to support the DSNY Foundation's work to build a museum.

About this Event

For 34 years, New York Sanitation worker, Nelson Molina collected items in the trash on his route in East Harlem. Over 45,000 items, all catalogued and organized on the second floor of the M11 garage. Nelson retired from the job in 2015, but comes to the garage routinely to check in on his "museum."

Join us for a screening of this new short film, followed by a Q&A with Nelson. Learn more about the DSNY Foundation's work to build a permanent museum. ***T-shirts by Only NY will be available for sale in support of the Foundation.***

The collection is not open to the public since it is in an active garage, but our hope is to get a proper space with the help of this film. Please visit nycstrongest.org/future-museum to donate!
