New York — Linda Russell & Companie will be performing two shows with the aid of American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters at the Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden this summer.  With the support of a grant awarded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, ASL interpreters will be available on Tuesdays, July 1 and July 22 at 6 p.m., bringing hearing-impaired children and adults access to Russell’s popular program of traditional ballads and stories of life in 19th-century New York City.  Taking place in the 18th-century museum garden, the shows take audiences back in time with tales of a bygone city.
Admission to all concerts is $15 for adults, $7 for children age 12 and under and complimentary to museum members.   A special discounted rate of  $7 per adult and $4 per child is available for those requiring ASL interpretation. Reservations can be made by downloading the Summer Garden Evening ticket form at or by calling the museum at (212) 838-6878.

 The Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden is located at 421 East 61st Street, between York and First Avenues.  Nearest subway: N, W, R, 4, 5, 6 at the 59th Street/Lexington station.

The Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden takes visitors back to the days when midtown Manhattan was a country escape for New Yorkers living in a crowded city at the southern tip of the island.  New York City’s only surviving day hotel, this landmarked building brings the bygone era of old New York alive.  Outside, linger a while as you enjoy the tranquility of the Museum Garden and gazebo. Docents are available to give guided tours to all visitors. The Children’s Corner activities and hands-on baskets are available with museum admission.
