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. Tours are Mondays and Fridays at 2pm, and Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10am.

Book Reading |
The past 30 years have seen dozens of otherwise successful investors try to improve education through the application of market principles. They have funneled billions of dollars into alternative schools, online education and textbook publishing, and they have, with surprising regularity, lost their shirts.In Class Clowns, professor and investment banker Jonathan A. Knee dissects what drives investors’ efforts to improve education and why they consistently fail. Knee takes readers inside four spectacular financial failures in education: Rupert Murdoch’s billion-dollar effort to reshape elementary education through technology; the unhappy investors—including hedge fund titan John Paulson—who lost billions in textbook publisher Houghton Mifflin; the abandonment of Knowledge Universe, Michael Milken's 20-year mission to revolutionize the global education industry; and a look at Chris Whittle, founder of EdisonLearning and a pioneer of large-scale transformational educational ventures, who continues to attract investment despite decades of financial and operational disappointment.Feel free to bring your lunch.

By all accounts, not only is the story of The American Geographical Society of New York unique, but cartography at the Society and its place in the overall history of American cartography, is singular as well. Indeed, it may be argued that the cartographic achievements of the Society were unparalleled for institutions of its kind. Miklos Pinther, the Society's last Chief Cartographer, will trace and illustrate three principal stages during a 125-year period of the oldest organization in the United States focused on geography: 1851-1899, characterized essentially by illustrative cartography; 1900-1948, a period of experimental and exploratory mapping; 1949-1976, the era of thematic and atlas cartography.Pinther will describe the main projects and highlight the personal accomplishments of key players in the Society's history. In 1978, the Society closed its departments in New York and moved its Library and Map Collection to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Pinther, in addition to being the Chief Cartographer for the American Geographical Society. has been an Adjunct Lecturer at Columbia University, and Chief Cartographer for the UN  and is long-time member of the New York Map Society.

With: Thomas AmelioMeditation (Dhyana) is the core practice of yoga (path to union), and its goal is purification from the effects of separation and fear­—the emotional and psychological conditions called samskaras—to reveal our true nature as freedom itself. In this class, we will learn and experience some of the transformative practices of the esoteric yoga tradition: basic awareness and breath meditation; pranayama (breathing methods); meditation to free us of attachment and aversion (raga/dvesha); self-inquiry (atma vichara); consciousness and lifeforce practice (chitta/prana meditation); spontaneous meditation (sahaj); and more—all of which aim to purify our body and mind of kleshas (inner obstacles), so that we can more fully experience the union of satchidananda—our real nature as truth/consciousness/joy.
