    Thank you for this.
    I did not know how the hall or the organs (There is a nice Kimball in the adjoining Ballroom) fared during Hurricane Sandy. Both are fine. Restoration has proceeded on both since the documentary was made. From what I gather the Kimball is nearly there, and the Midmer/Losh is somewhat playable. I don't know how far they are from finishing the big boy. I came across a YT video of "Abide with Me" played on it and it was a very moving experience to me; when you consider just how neglected and nearly destroyed it was. But it's coming back!
