New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick. Tour takes place Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Known as America's first suburb, Brooklyn Heights is truly a gem. Travel and Leisure named it one of America's top 10 most beautiful neighborhoods, and its beauty is rivaled only by its place in American history. These quaint, tree-lined streets have been the sites of Revolutionary War battles, abolitionist activism and have inspired numerous novelists. 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.

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.

In an effort to marshal resources to meet the escalating demands of war, empire, and state formation, European governments developed a set of sophisticated financial mechanisms around the turn of the eighteenth century. Soon, however, the already impressively complex financial architecture nearly crumbled due to a series of cataclysmic stock market crashes. The South Sea Bubble in England and the Mississippi Bubble in France left the newly formed modern culture of credit in complete disarray. In this one-day workshop, six French historians explore the conditions that led to the creation of John Law’s financial scheme, the intellectual context in which it became possible for people to believe in modern finance, the role that political ideology played during the bubble, the experience of living during the immediate aftermath of the crash, and the overall geopolitical context of the rise and fall of Law’s system.A history workshop with presentations by Charly Coleman, Pierre Force, Erik Goldner, Arnaud Orain, and John Shovlin, commentary by David Bell, moderated by Carl Wennerlind

Lawrence D. "Butch" Morris (1947-2013) was an American jazz cornetist, composer and conductor, internationally considered one of the great musical innovators of our times. His interests in ensemble music - from avant-garde jazz to contemporary classical - crystallized into a unique method of real-time orchestral composition, which he called Conduction. Morris toured the world, introducing Conduction to a varied community of musicians, and his influence extended into art, dance, poetry and cinema.The Art of Conduction Workbook is a theoretical introduction and practical guide to Conduction. During the last years of his life, Morris worked to document his method in this book form; his untimely death left it near finished. Finally, his manuscript has been brought to completion under the editorship of Daniela Veronesi.Book presentation by Alessandro Cassin and Daniela Veronesi.Performance by The Original LA Dawgs Pooch and Butch; Craig Harris, trombone, David Murray, saxophone, Melissa Slocum, bass

The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park. The tour is every Monday.

Workshop |
According to India’s ancient sages, the key to spiritual awakening is located in the very center of our own being, in the astral spine and chakras (the body’s seven subtle energy centers).  By learning to channel our internal energy through the chakra system, we can release unproductive attitudes, tendencies and habits accumulated over our current and past lifetimes. Through the yogic practices of chanting, pranayama (breathing techniques), meditation, and contemplation, and the use of sounds (bija mantras) and colors which correspond to each chakra, we will begin to unlock, balance and guide the energy contained in these sacred centers leading to spiritual transformation and higher consciousness.    Note: Please bring a journal or notebook.  With: Kyle McDonald

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.

Since the late 1970s, Sophie Calle (b. 1953) has made work that investigates provocative and often controversial methods for confronting her emotional and psychological life. She is well known for her sleuth-like explorations of human relationships, which have led her to follow a stranger in the streets of Venice and document his every move, or to find work as a hotel chambermaid in order to photograph the belongings of the hotel’s guests.Calle’s new book, And So Forth, presents many of her recent projects from the last decade, including her renowned exhibition, Take Care of Yourself, first exhibited at the 2007 Venice Biennale. In this “tour de force of feminine responses…executed in a wild range of media,” Calle orchestrated a virtual chorus of women’s interpretations and assessments of a breakup letter she received in an email.

Her Again is a portrait of a woman, an era, and a profession: the first thoroughly researched biography of Meryl Streep—the “Iron Lady” of acting, nominated for nineteen Oscars and winner of three—that explores her beginnings as a young woman of the 1970s grappling with love, feminism, and her astonishing talent. In 1975 Meryl Streep, a promising young graduate of the Yale School of Drama, was finding her place in the New York theater scene. Burning with talent and ambition, she was like dozens of aspiring actors of the time—a twenty-something beauty who rode her bike everywhere, kept a diary, napped before performances, and stayed out late “talking about acting with actors in actors’ bars.” Yet Meryl stood apart from her peers. In her first season in New York, she won attention-getting parts in back-to-back Broadway plays, a Tony Award nomination, and two roles in Shakespeare in the Park productions.

Michel Foucault famously argued that Chicago school neoliberalism was beyond normativity, uninterested in the disciplinary categories of perversion or deviance. Yet neoliberal scholars were far from libertarian when it came to the legal regulation of sexuality and entertained a much more complex relationship to moral philosophy than what is suggested by Foucault. In this workshop, Melinda Cooper, (author of Family Values: Between Neoliberalism and the New Social Conservatism), will elucidate what she sees as the moral economy of neoliberalism and its provenance in the poor law tradition of family responsibility. This event will bring together Melinda Cooper with scholars who have worked on the intersection of neoliberalism and sexual politics, Lisa Duggan and Bethany Moreton.

Already translated into twenty languages, The End of Eddy captures the violence and desperation of life in a French factory town. It is also a sensitive, universal portrait of boyhood and sexual awakening.  Like Karl Ove Knausgaard or Marguerite Duras, Édouard Louis writes from his own undisguised experience, but he writes with an openness and a compassionate intelligence that are all his own. The result—a critical and popular triumph—has made him the most celebrated French writer of his generation.

Cities across the globe are facing more frequent and more punitive natural disasters. At the same time, the U.S. federal government is showing reduced interest in and support for resiliency planning and recovery, making the efforts and leverage of local communities all the more critical.  This panel will convene representatives from academia and government and practitioners in the field of disaster recovery and resiliency to address the strategies behind and implications of community-based resiliency (broadly considered). Using Superstorm Sandy as the context, panelists will reflect on the successes and challenges of past efforts and discuss strategies for moving forward. The panelists include: Drew Curtis from Ironbound Community Corporation (Newark, NJ); Michelle de la Uz from Fifth Avenue Committee (Brooklyn); Erika Lindsey from the NYC Mayor's Office of Recovery and Resiliency; and Leigh Graham from CUNY; moderator: Rachel Meltzer, Assistant Professor of Urban Policy Analysis and Management.

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.

Whether we realize it or not, we carry in our mouths the legacy of our evolution. Our teeth are like living fossils that can be studied and compared to those of our ancestors to teach us how we became human. In Evolution's Bite, noted paleoanthropologist Peter Ungar brings together cutting-edge advances in understanding human evolution and climate change with new approaches to uncovering dietary clues from fossil teeth to present a remarkable investigation into the ways that teeth—their shape, chemistry, and wear—reveal how we came to be.

A ninth-grade dropout who found himself at the center of the worlds of industry, advertising, theater, and even gaming, Norman Bel Geddes designed everything from the first all-weather stadium, to Manhattan’s most exclusive nightclub, to Futurama, the prescient 1939 exhibit that envisioned how America would look in the not-too-distant sixties. In The Man Who Designed the Future, B. Alexandra Szerlip reveals precisely how central Bel Geddes was to the history of American innovation. He presided over a moment in which theater became immersive, function merged with form, and people became consumers. A polymath with humble Midwestern origins, Bel Geddes’s visionary career would launch him into social circles with the Algonquin roundtable members, stars of stage and screen, and titans of industry.

In this wonderful piece of narrative nonfiction inspired by a fait divers, Jablonka delivers a masterful investigation on the figure of Laëtitia that calls upon sociology, journalism, psychology, and justice. He focuses on her volatile childhood – spent bouncing between a violent alcoholic father, a depressive mother, and foster care – on her daily life under the authority of an abusive social worker, and on her dreams for a future that would not come to be. While accounting for the markers of Laëtitia’s story, Jablonka reveals something much larger about the time we live in, about our values, and the social and political system in which we evolve.

Many people think of the New York City subway as one of the largest, most efficient, if not the cleanest mass transit systems in the world. Few, however, think of it as the largest and longest art gallery on the planet. Well, they don't know what they are missing. This lively walking AND subway riding tour visits over a dozen subway stations to experience a selection of these striking often whimsical works that go largely unnoticed by the general public. Join this climate controlled subway and walking art tour. Along the way you'll learn about and become expert at navigating the (in)famous NYC subway system. There's also the invaluable opportunity to confer about your other sightseeing plans with the acclaimed Bronx born, vastly experienced licensed NYC tour guide, Darryl Reilly.

Historical parallels abound in Sana Krasikov’s new novel, The Patriots, about three generations of an American family who emigrate in reverse from the US to Russia. Reviewers have called the book alarmingly relevant to our political moment. Krasikov will talk about her efforts to decode the vernacular of autocracy, and how writing the story of Americans lost in Russia felt uncomfortably close to home. Sana Krasikov was born in Ukraine and grew up in Georgia and the United States. Her story collection One More Year won a "5 Under 35" award from the National Book Foundation, and the Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature. It was a finalist for the 2009 PEN/Hemingway Award and for the NYPL Young Lions Fiction Prize. Her latest novel, The Patriots, explores the effects of the Cold War on three generations of one American family, from the 1930s to the present.

Sugatarium explores the uncontrollable and insanely addictive hold sugar has on us. In these troubled and unsettled times – where nothing seems to make sense – artist Peter Anton heightens the delirium by transforming the gallery into a Sugatarium. He describes the transformed space as “an asylum that is locked up and long forgotten. Visitors must sneak into the Sugatarium through an open window. Institutional beds await the new ‘patients’ where they can rest and view the artwork while confronting their own dependence on sweets.” At the exhibition opening, for their own safety, visitors will only be allowed to speak with Anton through a glass partition via a phone intercom system.Monumental-sized, vibrant, and hyper-realistic sculptures – including a cherry pie, an ice cream sundae, cake, macarons, and other sugary treats – will be smashed, mushed, splattered, broken and thrown throughout the space. Anton’s sculptures are highly detailed and hand-crafted from carefully selected and manipulated materials, including resin, plaster, wood, clay, aluminum, and acrylic and oil paints.

Attenuated elongated leaves are reaching up, stretching, radiating, curling, twisting, waving, emerging from gnarled, ribbed trunks. Carol Goebel evokes the natural world of plant life in wood fired clay. The kiln produces swaths of fire that striate the trunks and leaves with brownish purples, greens and yellows. Some sculptures have diffuse shooting leaves while in others, single leaflets sprout from decayed mottled stalks. As counterpoint, also displayed are vibrant, subtly colored pastel paintings that echo the sculptures' starker lines. Carlyle Chaudruc Upson continues her exploration of watercolor grass painting in a series inspired by hiking in Asia and the United States. These linear paintings, created in a very gestural manner, explore the varied and kinetic texture of grasses as they move in the wind.

Each year the German Translation Fund organizes several workshops around the world focused on translating from German into one particular language and vice versa. This year for the first time, one of these ViceVersa week-long workshops is taking place in the United States with five German-to-English translators and five English-to-German translators, led by Shelley Frisch and Karen Nölle. In conjunction with this workshop, Frisch and Nölle will host a panel on current directions in literary translation, and workshop participants will present from new translations in progress. The evening will provide a window into what it means to spend most-- or all-- of one's waking hours contemplating texts in one language and recreating them in new linguistic garb.

Acclaimed baseball historian and bestselling author Marty Appel digs into Casey Stengel’s quirks and foibles, unearthing a tremendous trove of baseball stories, perspective, and history.

Four time Grammy Award winner Glen Velez is the founding father of the modern frame drum movement and is regarded as a legendary figure among musicians and audiences world-wide. Velez brought a new genre of drumming to the contemporary music scene by creating his own performance style inspired by years of percussion and frame drumming studies from various cultures. Velez’s virtuosic combinations of hand movements, finger techniques, along with his original compositional style, which incorporates stepping, drum language and Central Asian Overtone singing (split-tone singing), has undoubtedly opened new possibilities for musicians around the globe, resulting in a shift in modern percussion. For rhythm vocalist Loire Cotler, life has always been about the natural rhythm of the universe which has propelled her into a life, like her music, that is defined by pure cadence and pulse. Loire has now done no less than create an entirely new genre using the intimate power of her voice as a rhythm instrument. She calls upon a distant past of sacred ritual and echo vocal traditions (the Jewish nigunim, Middle Eastern taksim and Konnakol Indian drum language).

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.

One of America’s most influential writers, Anne Sexton has long been overshadowed by fellow confessional poets Sylvia Plath and Robert Lowell and is seldom featured in literary criticism. This Business of Words reassesses Sexton and her poetry for the first time in two decades and offers directions for future Sexton scholarship.  With new access to her archives, the scholars and poets featured in this volume explore her work, responses to her contemporaries, and her legacy.  In The Business of Words critical and creative perspectives intersect, inspiring new questions about Sexton’s poems and how to interpret them.  This volume maps the influence of Sexton’s craft on twenty-first century cultural contexts and emphasizes her continuing vitality.This event comprises lectures and discussion featuring contributors to This Business of Words: Reassessing Anne Sexton, moderated by the editor Amanda Golden.

Natalia Ginzburg (1916-1991) was the author of numerous novels, short stories, and essays. In her work, she was particularly interested in the intersection between private and public, between family relationships and the political sphere. A Family Lexicon, arguably one of the great works of twentieth-century literature, re-creates the small world of a family - and their linguistic codes - against a backdrop of the rise of Mussolini through World War II.On the occasion of the publication of Jenny McPhee's new translation of Natalia Ginzburg's novel A Family Lexicon, this is a panel discussion about Ginzburg, women writers, and the state of the art of translation, featuring:Jenny McPhee (NYU)Jhumpa Lahiri (Princeton University)Ann Goldstein (editor, The New Yorker)Giovanna Calvino (NYU)Lynne Sharon Schwartz (Bennington College)Moderated by Ruth Ben-Ghiat (NYU)

She also explains why it’s important to give back by sharing stories from her work as a UNICEF ambassador and as founder of the Batonga Foundation, which gives African girls access to education..

A renaissance is taking place on the southern tip of Manhattan Island. Since the terrorist attacks of September 11th 2001, a concerted effort has been undertaken to redevelop this part of the city, with the redevelopment of the World Trade Center and the construction of the National September 11th Memorial and Museum. And from twilight into the night is the right time to pay a visit to this part of New York City. From the Memorial to the Woolworth Building, City Hall to the Brooklyn Bridge, some of the your most memorable experiences in the city await you.

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.
