On April 29, our IAHD day programs celebrated National Superhero Day! While there were many dressed up as Spiderman and Batman at Bainbridge, Tarrytown, and St. Mary’s, the day was meant to highlight the fact that you don’t necessarily have to be a comic book character to be considered a superhero; we can all be heroes in our day-to-day lives in the way we choose to live and help others!

Today was also a day to remember a member of the IAHD community, the late Superhero Sammy, pictured on the left.

🐦 These are just a few of the people at Bainbridge who revealed their super alter-egos with us!

🛩️ Residents from our Leland and Ryer homes also dressed up in graphic tees showing off their favorite heroic character(s).

Remember: You don’t have to be Superman or Wonder Woman to have a positive impact on the lives of others!

Watch out, New York City! Team Ryer has been out and about this spring, taking advantage of all the city has to offer. Read about some of their adventures below!

🌷🍭Ryer welcomed the spring season by traveling to Herald Square and embracing the extravagance that is the annual Flower Show at Macy’s in Herald Square. Afterwards, they visited the store’s Sugar Factory and stocked up on their favorite sweet treats.

🏎️🚗 The men of Ryer took a ride over to the Jacob Javits Center in March and attended the New York International Auto Show. As you can see, they have nailed down the art of looking cool next to some pretty unique cars!

🪄🧹 In April, some of the Ryer ladies took a quick visit to Hogwarts, seeing the Broadway show Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at the Lyric Theatre and visiting the flagship store in the Flatiron District. What a magical night!

We can’t wait to see what else Team Ryer has in store as the summer comes! Stay tuned!

A Love of Legos

Matthew, an attendee of IAHD’s Tarrytown day program and a resident of our Yorktown home, spends the majority of his time and money on his favorite hobby: building Legos. Most of what he builds is not from an official Lego set; instead, Matthew collects loose Lego pieces and follows online guidebooks to build independently.

For his birthday this past February, he decided to host a celebratory exhibition here at IAHD Tarrytown to show off his vast collection of colorful figurines and buildings.

These are just some of Matthew’s creations; he has boxes more of them in his bedroom closet.

His favorite Lego piece and the most difficult one to build are one and the same- a ship from the Pirates of the Caribbean movie series. You can see some of the ship’s intricate details in the last gallery photo above.

Thank you to all who visited Matthew’s Lego Exhibition, especially our IAHD staff and those from the local community! We hope you had a wonderful time celebrating Matthew as he passionately shared this quite impressive hobby with us.
