In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” Tours take place every Tuesday at 10am, 11am, 2pm, and 3pm until Feb. 14, 2017.

Individual investors often fear looking at a company’s financial statements because on the surface, they may appear quite complicated and detailed.  Financial statements often tell a useful story about how profitable a business is (or isn’t), what sort of assets the business has, what sort of liabilities and debts that the business has, and what the trends in the business are.  Learn how to look at the estimates behind these numbers (how reliable are they?) and how to do a qualitative assessment of the figures.  Richard H. Konrad discusses how to make a company’s financial statements speak to you about the business, its profitability, and its quality.

For many Americans, the emergence of a “porno chic” culture provided an opportunity to embrace the sexual revolution by attending a film like Deep Throat (1972) or leafing through an erotic magazine like Penthouse. By the 1980s, this pornographic moment was beaten back by the rise of Reagan-era political conservatism and feminist anti-pornography sentiment.Porno Chic and the Sex Wars: American Sexual Representation in the 1970s, placing pornography at the center of the 1970s places pornography at the heart of the 1970s American experience, exploring lesser-known forms of pornography from the decade, such as a new, vibrant gay porn genre; transsexual/female impersonator magazines; and pornography for new users, including women and conservative Christians.
