Harlem's history is also one of the city's most dramatic, having gone through many ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic changes over the past roughly 400 years, which have resulted in a diverse array of places of worship, theaters, homes and eating establishments.

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 Dec. 12, 2017.

Celebrate the release of Dandy Lion: The Black Dandy and Street Style by Shantrelle P. Lewis, a companion to her traveling curatorial initiative, The Dandy Lion Project, which examines global black dandyism through photography and film. Lewis will be joined in conversation by Laylah Amatullah Barrayn, photographer and Creative Director of The Brooklyn Circus Ouigi Theodore, for an exploration of “oppositional fashion” as a mode of self-expression and a catalyst for resistance to myriad social expectations and political ideas.Today’s black dandies assume none of the privilege associated with dandyism’s European origins, but all the delight and careful consideration of one’s style. The evening will be presented as a seersucker social. Before the program there will be portraits taken of the public. They will also host a light reception and book signing after the conversation.
