Larry Weingarten, longtime friend and contributor to Home Energy magazine, recently moved his Water Heater Museum from his home in Salinas, California, to a very special place on the East Coast. The museum had enjoyed some public attention at his home and had also appeared in small expos, including one at the Monterey Airport. In August 2019, the museum moved to the General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen of the City of New York in midtown Manhattan. After kicking around ideas to tour the museum cross-country with hot water expert Gary Klein in a hot-water road show, Larry decided to pack it all into a container, meet the truck in New York, and assemble the museum in its new home just in time for Wetstock, a periodic meeting of hydronic-heating enthusiasts, held this year at the General Society.
