Tour | Bloomingdale Neighborhood Walking Tour


Explore the history of this part of Upper West Side with local historian Jim Mackin. While it is still technically part of the Upper West Side, Manhattan's Bloomingdale District takes its name from its original Dutch settlers. Located between West 96th and West 110th Streets, the Hudson River and Broadway, The Bloomingdale District is an almost-forgotten enclave (and name) in the Upper West Side. Perhaps named for the old Dutch village of Bloemendaal ("valley of flowers"), this neighborhood was once home to the Bloomingdale Insane Asylum. It is likely that the name fell out of disuse to avoid association with the facility. But now, the neighborhood is distinguished enough from the Upper West Side to the south, and Manhattan Valley to the east to warrant its own name - one that hearkens back to its roots, and befitting a scenic, almost "bucolic" city neighborhood.

Classical Music | Bach Vespers: BWV 170 Vergnügte Ruh, beliebte Seelenlust 


Vergnügte Ruh, beliebte Seelenlust (Delightful rest, beloved pleasure of the soul) BWV 170 is a church cantata by J.S. Bach composed in Leipzig for the sixth Sunday after Trinity. The prescribed readings for the Sunday are from the Epistle to the Romans, "By Christ's death we are dead for sin" (Romans 6:3–11), and from the Gospel of Matthew a passage from the Sermon on the Mount about better justice than the justice of merely observing laws and rules (Matthew 5:20–26). The text of the cantata is drawn from Georg Christian Lehms' Gottgefälliges Kirchen-Opfer (1711) and speaks of the desire to lead a virtuous life and so enter heaven and avoid hell. After starting his classical music career as a member of twice GRAMMY® nominated ensemble Seraphic Fire, Countertenor Reggie Mobley has since appeared with Academy of Ancient Music, Agave Baroque, Bach Collegium San Diego, Calgary Symphony, Monteverdi Choir & English Baroque Soloists, Pacific Music Works, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Seattle Symphony, TENET, and The Handel + Haydn Society.
