Mon, January 24, 2022. New York is full of wonderful things to do beyond the Empire State Building, Metropolitan Museum, Ellis Island, Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral, etc. Go off the beaten path and find hidden treasures which cost you nothing, but are extremelly enjoyable and much less crowded then famous tourist spots.

Experience New York with no lines and no hassle.  Our site tells yiou all about free tours, free concerts, free movies, free theater performances, free dsicussions, etc. you can take advantage of whether you live in the city or spend just a couple of days here.

DOWNTOWN

First, go Downtown and see where New York began: visit City Hall, view the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan skyline, walk by the fortification that was intended to prevent a British invasion in 1812, bike (or just walk) along Hudson River passing all those beautiful Battery Park City Parks with their impressive open space design and public sculptures, sit down for a pleasant meal at one of small Financial Center eateries, go inside the Palm Atrium and take a look at the 9/11 memorial from there.

Then tour New York's beautiful City Hall free of charge. New York City Hall is one of the oldest continuously used City Halls in the nation that still houses its original governmental functions. New York's City Hall is considered one of the finest architectural achievements of its period. Constructed from 1803 to 1812, the building was an early expression of the City's cosmopolitanism. City Hall is a designated New York City landmark, and its rotunda is a designated interior landmark as well. The tours that do not require reservations, but do require a signup, are run on Wednesdays at noon. The registration takes place on the day of the tour between 9:00 AM and 11:30 AM. You will need an advanced reservation for Thursday tours. They take place at 10 am for groups and at 10:30 am for individuals.

Your next adventure is to see the Statue of Liberty, but we do not reccomend to take the Statue of Liberty Ferry.
The best way to see the Statue of Liberty is to take a 25-minute water trip from Lower Manhattan to Staten Island by free-of-charge Staten Island Ferry. On a way there the Statue of Liberty will attract your undivided attention. On the way back (another 25 min) you will not be able to take your eyes off the stunning vistas of New York Harbor and the Manhattan skyline. The ferry runs every 30 min most part of the day. It runs more often during rush hours: 7 am - 8:45 am and between 5 pm and 6:45 pm; but the ferries are packed during rush hour trips; this is not a good time to take a leisurely ride.

Go West young woman (or man) once you are back on Manhattan Island: pass Battery Park (you may want to stop at the Castle Clinton - no connection with the President's family).

UPTOWN
Your Uptown trip should include a walk around Columbia University Campus, visit to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine and mostly overlooked gem that the Riverside Church is.

Walk around Columbia University Campus
The University founded as King’s College in 1754. It's historic main campus consists of 71 buildings on 36 acres and was originally designed by the famous architectural firm of McKim, Mead and White. Low Memorial Library is our favorite building there. If you are not sure you want to go all the way uptown to see it, you may take a virtual tour at http://www.columbia.edu/acis/tour/start.html

And if you decide that Uptown does worth your time, then there are two other sites you do have to pay a visit to: Riverside Church and The Cathedral of St. John the Divine.

Lecture | Post-Soviet Conflicts: Doing Better Than We Thought? (online)
A talk on post-Soviet conflicts by Nina Lutterjohann, Visiting Scholar at the Harriman Institute. The Eastern Partnership has been the flagship project of the EU since 2009. Often, and especially since 2013, this has led to disagreement and even hostility between the Kremlin and the EU. The EU's outreach, while intended as only beneficial, created seemingly exclusive choices for these countries between the EU and Moscow's Eurasian Union. Ukraine's Yanukovych government's rejection of the association agreement and the ensuring Maidan protests of 2013-14 led to regime change, Russian annexation of Crimea, and continuing conflict in Eastern Ukraine. The focus of Lutterjohann's research offers a comparative perspective to better understand the origins, dynamics, and scenarios of these conflicts.    New York City, NY; NYC

Lecture | Science and Fascism, or Fascist Science? (online)
While historians of Germany have made Nazi science an essential aspect of Hitler's regime, Italian historians have always written about science and Fascism as two separate entities. This perspective confirms the assumption that good science, as a pure intellectual enterprise, can exist and function properly only in liberal-democratic regimes. Did science work differently under Fascism? In short, was there a "Fascist science"? Speaker: Angelo Caglioti, Assistant Professor of History at Barnard College    New York City, NY; NYC

Discussion | Managing Cyber Risk: The Clear and Present Danger (online)
Ensuring the cyber security resilience of the United States is truly a whole-of-society effort. The importance of cyber security for our nation's national security, economic security, and competitiveness is fortunately well understood and documented at this juncture. However, in response to the dramatic changes in the threat landscape, a welcomed and necessary shift has been the increased emphasis on cyber security as a strategic, enterprise-wide risk by senior leaders in organizations, going beyond the realm of I.T. functions. This panel will discuss cyber security as an enterprise-wide risk issue requiring more than just an I.T. perspective. The panel will outline the impact of cyber risk on an organization, mitigate the risk, and review the critical components of a cyber risk program.    New York City, NY; NYC

Reading | Echoes in Ink: A Liberation Day Reading of Short Stories From the Holocaust (online)
In the aftermath of the Holocaust, many Jewish writers turned to pen and paper to reckon with the enormity of their loss. The stories they wrote--both fiction and nonfiction--bring to life the darkest moments of human history at the same time as they remind us of the human capacity for renewal and regeneration. On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, this is a reading of three such short stories: "The Road of No Return" by Rachel Korn, "The Shawl" by Cynthia Ozick, and "A Wedding in Brownsville" by Isaac Bashevis Singer.    New York City, NY; NYC

Author Reading | The New York Subway Map Debate: The Untold Story of a Legendary Moment in Design History (online)
Form or function? This age-old design question comes to a head in a new book that brings to life an iconic debate between Italian designer Massimo Vignelli and cartographer John Tauranac over the future of the NYC Subway Map in 1978. On that pivotal evening inside Cooper Union's Great Hall, Vignelli argued with Tauranac--then the chairman of the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority's map committee--in a heated debate about abstraction versus realism, simplicity versus complexity, and form versus function in the design of the NYC subway map. Once lost to history, the discovery of a lost audio recording by documentary filmmaker Gary Hustwit sheds light on this watermark moment in design history, where Vignelli attempted to defend his abstract map of the subway system against a more accurate and detailed one favored by Tauranac.    New York City, NY; NYC

Discussion | Mexican Muralism and its American Impact (online)
War dominated the late 19th and early 20th centuries in Europe. New political ideologies also added tensions. Art responded by turning its focus onto the common man and woman in natural and urban environments. The Americas were impacted as well with cries for change. In Mexico, a ten-year revolution offered an opportunity for Mexico to acknowledge its pre-Hispanic past with a new blended population. Art became the medium to spark emotions and share with pride epic tales of how this blended world was to take shape. The Mexican Muralism Movement embraced European traditions of drawing and frescoes with social realism and new aesthetics that swept into North America. Our panel will discuss these impacts and the artists whose mark still moves us today. This is a panel discussion led by Savona Bailey-McClain, Executive Director and Chief Curator of the West Harlem Art Fund. Panelists include: -- Esther Adler, Associate Curator, Department of Drawings and Prints, MoMA -- Leon Tovar, Principal, Leon Tovar Gallery, NYC -- Dr. Orlando Hernandez-Ying, Rockefeller Brothers Fund Curatorial Research Fellow for the Hubert & Mireille Goldschmidt Works on Paper Fellowship, Hispanic Society Museum & Library -- With remarks from: Dr. Marcus B.

Monumental in scope, The Books of Jacob is an ecstatic odyssey through a changing world in search of transcendence.     New York City, NY; NYC

Lecture | The Five Joyces: How James Joyce Was Read in Russia (online)
While James Joyce's place in the modernist pantheon has long been firmly entrenched, its resonances continue to be uncovered. In the Russian context, the Irish writer has occupied many roles since his work was first translated in the mid-1920s. This talk will trace the development not of a monolithic Joyce, but rather of five separate Russian Joyces -- the versions of the author imagined by his Russian readers. This is a tour of the Joycean strains in the work of Yury Olesha, Vladimir Nabokov, Andrei Bitov, Sasha Sokolov, and Mikhail Shishkin, who each drew from their predecessor's texts, particularly Ulysses and Finnegans Wake, to address the volatile questions of lineages in their respective Soviet, emigre, and post-Soviet contexts. As a coda, selections from interviews with contemporary writers will show how the debates regarding Joyce's legacy are no less settled a century after Ulysses. Speaker Jose Vergara is Assistant Professor of Russian at Bryn Mawr College. He specializes in prose of the long twentieth century, with an emphasis on experimental works. His first book, All Future Plunges to the Past: James Joyce in Russian Literature, explores how Russian writers from the mid-1920s on have read and creatively responded to Joyce's fiction.    New York City, NY; NYC

Discussion | On Protesting Monuments (online)
A conversation with Erin Thompson, professor of art crime at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice and author of Smashing Statues. An urgent and fractious national debate over public monuments has erupted in America. Some people risk imprisonment to tear down long-ignored hunks of marble; others form armed patrols to defend them. Why do we care so much about statues?
