On Friday, November 18, BPCA will be hosting a Memorial Service for our beloved neighbor and friend, Ruth Ohman, who called Battery Park City home for more than 30 years. Ruth served on Manhattan Community Board 1 and worked tirelessly to coordinate senior programming initiatives across the neighborhood. Friday’s service runs from 12:15 to 2:15pm at 6 River Terrace.

In December 2015, we had the opportunity to sit with Ruth for our “BPC People” feature, where she spoke of her work, her hobbies, and her passion for helping others.

Thank you, Ruth. We’re honored to call you our friend.
