It's here where the world's most important stock exchange and one of the most famous bridges stand. And it is here where an unspeakable tragedy took place and where a rebirth is underway.

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 at 10am and 11am.

The book tells the story of the world’s most audacious infrastructure project, an attempt to colonize and connect a dynamic, newly assertive region. Three decades after Paul Theroux dubbed China’s lumbering railway the Iron Rooster, the country’s network of high-speed trains is the envy of the world. Now, China is working to push those tracks into Southeast Asia, reviving a century-old colonial fantasy of an imperial railroad from China to Singapore. The talk is given by the book's author Will Doig, who has worked as Next City's (a national urban affairs magazine) international editor,  a columnist at Salon, an editor at The Daily Beast, a lecturer at the New School, and a communications staffer at the Open Society Foundations.

Since 2014, the city of Shenzhen in the South of China has been seen as a rising hub of innovation, a so-called “Hollywood for Makers” and “Silicon Valley of Hardware.” Media stories took up an idea that open source hardware advocates had been promoting for several years: that the city of Shenzhen had become crucial for the realization of one of the key promises of the maker movement, i.e. to prototype concrete alternatives to the pitfalls of the information society and contemporary capitalism. Just a couple years earlier, Shenzhen was largely known as a place of copycats and fakes that lacked creativity where ideas created elsewhere were simply executed and mass produced. What happened within the timespan of only a few years that changed Shenzhen’s image from demonstrating China’s continuous lag in technology innovation towards a place where alternatives to neoliberal capitalism could be prototype?

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 dominant discourse about a “crisis of attention” depicts the new generations as scatterbrains doomed to evaporate in pathological distraction. There certainly are good reasons for most of us to feel overwhelmed by an excess of solicitations. In its current path of development, the capitalist mediarchy generates ecocidal and egocidal conditions of ubiquitous competition which dramatically drain our attentional resources.

This talk examines historical crime and detective fiction set against the background of Italy’s colonies in East Africa. Furthermore, it aims at investigating a tension within the tradition of Italian crime fiction, and, more specifically, of historical crime fiction. On the one hand, by shedding light into the darker corners of Italy’s past, the genre aims at serving as a sort of “new social novel”; on the other, the conventions of detective fiction can hamper the reconstruction of complex experiences such as that of the Italian “impresa coloniale”.

Insulted by the regent of France, Britain’s King Henry V decides to wage war and claim the throne across the Channel. But Henry’s charm only distracts the soldiers for so long before the dire stakes of their task calls into question the King’s true motives and direction. Resonating from across the centuries—wherever there may be a kingdom for a stage, and royalty to act—Shakespeare’s drama about invasion, ego and leadership delves into history’s thorniest questions: What makes a person worthy of wearing the crown, and what do they owe the people they lead? Obie Award-winning director Robert O’Hara (Bootycandy, The Brother/Sister Plays (Part 2)) brings a warring King and his band of brothers to  New York City.

For some performers, the show must go on… even after death! The Ghosts on Broadway Tour, led by a veteran New York City talent agent, will introduce you to these notorious theater legends who appear after the lights go dim. You’ll hear about the Broadway impresario who haunts the theater that bears his name. His apparition shows up on opening nights to congratulate the cast or “pinch” the leading ladies’ bottom. Jazz age parties are heard almost nightly from his long abandoned apartment over his theater.
