Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.Every Saturday.

Visit a stop on the Underground Railroad, or the home of Truman Capote, where he penned Breakfast at Tiffany's and where Jackie Robinson signed with the Dodgers.

When Stephanie Hirsch's show "Indestructible" opened last November it was during the US Elections. People came in and read her mantras, "All Of This Is Temporary," "It Did Not Ruin Her," In Time It Will All Make Sense," Let It All Go," among others, as deeply political. There was an immense overtone of doom and gloom. But, what a difference a day makes! Now that people have had time to digest and evaluate their emotions, conversations around Stephanie's work have shifted from disillusionment to empowerment.

Lecture |
This first of five classes will focus on the politically significant yet seldom acknowledged common ground between a section of labor reformers and political abolitionists in New York on questions of land and freedom for all citizens, regardless of race. Through an investigation of personal papers, public lectures, and newspapers of the period leading up to the Mexican-American War, this class will trace the transformation of radical reform traditions from practices divided along racial lines, to movements with shared goals and priorities. You will see how in the lead-up to this conflict, Northern reformers were pushed to develop innovative political and social organizations in an effort to break the pattern of compromise with the slave South, and how Paineite (after Thomas Paine) circles of agrarian radicals and abolitionist networks organized—sometimes in tandem—to form a Northern cross-class opposition to slavery.

Colibri -- Evelyn Petcher, violin, and Hannah Mondemann, piano -- presents the evening of "Light and Shadows"Program:Debussy (1862 – 1918) Violin Sonata in G MinorShostakovich (1906 – 1975) Sonata for Violin and Piano in G major, Op. 134About the ProgramThe Violin Sonata in G minor, L 140, for violin and piano was composed by Claude Debussy in 1917. It was the composer's last major composition and the third work in what had originally been conceived as a cycle of six sonatas for various instruments (the first two being the cello sonata, L 135, and the sonata for flute, viola and harp, L 137). The work is notable for its brevity; a typical performance lasts about 13 minutes. The premiere took place on 5 May 1917, the violin part played by Gaston Poulet, with Debussy himself at the piano. It was his last public performance.Dmitri Shostakovich composed Sonata for Violin and Piano in G major, Op. 134 in the autumn of 1968 in Moscow.The work's inscription reads: "For the 60th birthday of David Oistrakh." Oistrakh collaborated with Shostakovich on several of the composer's major works, purportedly contributing his own insight and suggestions based on the violin's strengths and technical limitations. Before the official public premiere in May, Oistrakh and Shostakovich recorded the work informally in the latter's apartment, though the composer's physical handicap (he was diagnosed with polio in 1965) and a relative lack of rehearsal and polish is evident in the performance. Oistrakh later recorded the sonata with Sviatoslav Richter on piano for the official release.
