Refugee Camp Exhibit

If you're in New York City this weekend, be sure to check out the Refugee Camp in the Heart of the City. This outdoor exhibit is being hosted by Doctors Without Borders to give visitors a sense of what life in a refugee camp is like. According to their Web site, the exhibit consists of materials used by the humanitarian group, including "emergency refugee housing, a food distribution tent, water pump, health clinic, vaccination tent, therapeutic feeding center, and a cholera treatment center."

The exhibit runs from now through Sunday, Sept. 24, at the Long Meadow in Brooklyn's Prospect Park. Hours are 9:30 to 6:30 daily. Visit for more info.
