Three generations of New Yorkers have sat at the feet of Hans Christian Andersen listening to his magical tales.
In 2010 we celebrated the 205th anniversary of Hans Christian Andersen's birth. 2013 is the 57th year of storytelling at the Hans Christian Andersen Storytelling Center in Central Park.
Each year, we make special efforts to establish and maintain an endowment so as to assure the continuation of storytelling at this very special place.
