Created in 1954, The Priory Scholars of NYC (PSNYC) was founded by Chris Steinbrunner and friends and is a Sherlock Holmes scion society. Rising from the slumber of a recent hiatus (2007-2011), PSNYC has been re-booted so as to take full advantage of 21st century technology while at the same time exploring its rich and storied past. Our primary focus is the discussion of the canon, while using supplemental material (both classic papers as well as works-in-progress) to fine-tune/challenge/enhance one’s experience of the 60 primary texts. On the social side we want to heartily welcome back any original PSNYC-ers, as well as invite any recently minted Sherlockians and Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts to what we hope will be a rip-roaring raucously cerebral celebration of Holmes and Watson…with some occasional homework – but the fun kind. Please check back here for updates, upcoming events and information. And please feel free to contact us for any reason either via Facebook at www.facebook.com/PrioryNYC or e-mail at PrioryNYC@gmail.com.
