The museum, which has been housed in the old 1st Precinct station house at 100 Old Slip since 2001, has temporarily moved to 45 Wall Street while addressing the water damage caused in 2012 by Hurricane Sandy. It is currently seeking donations to help defray the cost of making its permanent home usable again. While museum staff planned to hold its annual Antique Police Car Show last June at the permanent home, bad weather forced them to cancel and they weren’t able to reschedule – See more at: http://blog.hemmings.com/index.php/tag/new-york-international-auto-show/#sthash.7y6eWY39.dpuf
