WILLIAMSBURG—Starting this weekend and lasting through April, Buffalo Exchange will collect donations of fur coats for the Humane Society's Coats for Cubs program. The idea behind the fur drive is not only brilliant but also sort of adorable: The coats go to injured or orphaned animals who could use a nice mink or sable as a mother-substitute. You can bring old furs to the Buffalo Exchange at 504 Driggs Avenue in Williamsburg beginning Saturday, or wait till November 22 and drop them by the new one coming in at 332 E. 11th Street in the East Village.
