Well this is good news From the inbox:
Thanks for your article covering 3rd Ward’s abrupt closing. I’m a co-founder of CourseHorse, a website that centralizes classes in NYC, and was saddened and completely shocked to learn about this.
We’ve had hundreds of students sign up for 3rd Ward classes through our site (and partners Time Out, Brooklyn Mag/L Mag, Serious Eats, etc) in recent weeks. As you know, 3rd Ward has said they will not be issuing any refunds, which we think, well, stinks.
With that in mind: we’ve decided to issue a 100% credit to 3rd Ward students who have booked through CourseHorse. This can used on over 35,000 classes in the city and we hope will allow them to continue to learn and explore new/old passions.
Students can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to claim their credit.
