Celebrating Chess Forum

For the first time since 1995, New York City hosts the blockbuster 2016 World Championship of Chess. On the eve of the big event, join Village Preservation at Chess Forum to celebrate the game’s long legacy in the Village. Imad Khachan, Thompson Street business owner of over 20 years, will regale us with myriad tales of the vibrant Village chess scene. Come enjoy this Village institution with fellow chess lovers, and you may even strike up a game with a local master. Chess Forum was named Village Preservation’s Business of the Month in October, and we’re proud to highlight this important chess haven. Imad says “Macdougal had Bob Dylan and Washington Square Park had Bobby Fischer” – and luckily for us, Thompson Street still has Chess Forum. Join us to celebrate Imad, his shop, and Village chess culture on November 10th!
