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.

The story of the school, founded at downtown Trinity Church in 1709 and now one of the oldest schools in the US. In 1895 the school moved uptown, building on a series of lots on West 91st Street in the midst of the rows of town houses of turn-of-the-century Upper West Side. Learn how the school evolved from church-sponsored to ecumenical, from a charity school to a private school, from all-boys to coed and to a school that now prides itself on its diverse student body. Presenters will include Kevin Ramsey, Director of Communications, alumna and two parents of alumni--one a former teacher and the other a member of the first class of girls at the school and member of the Board of Trustees. A tour of the school will follow the presentation and is accessible to all; the tour includes stairs.
