Tour | Tour of Gracie Mansion, Home of New York's Mayors


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.” This tour repeats every Monday.

Film | Shoah (1985): The Epic 9-Hour Masterpiece on the Holocaust


On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, a screening of Claude Lanzmann’s 1985 masterpiece in a rare public screening of the restored 9.5-hour film in its entirety. Shoah is the most comprehensive and radical film about the extermination of European Jews by the Nazis: 12 years of production and research, 350 hours of material, 566 minutes of film against forgetting. 30 years after the end of WWII, the French filmmaker visited the places of extermination, the “death factories” of Chelmno, Belzec, Sobibor, Treblinka, and Auschwitz, and found that grass had grown over them. Hence the persistence with which he sought out the last eyewitnesses to the catastrophe – rare survivors of the Sonderkommandos, bystanders, and Nazi perpetrators, too – in Poland, Israel, the United States, and Germany to question them about deportation and everyday life in the camps. This epic large-scale project does without a score, without any form of commentary or historical footage. It’s focus is not on a documentation of the past, but on the presence of memory.   Schedule: 10:30am Doors open 11:00am Film starts 3:30-4:00pm Break 9:00pm Film ends

Author Reading | Lewis Milestone: Life and Films


Creator of such recognized classic films as All Quiet on the Western Front, Of Mice and Men and Pork Chop Hill, Lewis Milestone rose from humble Russian-speaking Jewish origins in Kishinev to become one of the leading directors of Hollywood's Golden Age. During the course of his long career he worked with many great stars, and maintained close contact with Soviet filmmakers. His Russian origins and left-wing sympathies made him a target of the anti-Communist hysteria of the late 1940s, but he survived into the 1960s with Ocean's 11 and Mutiny on the Bounty. Harlow Robinson's book is the first major study of this fascinating cinema pioneer.

Poetry Reading | New Poetry: Eight Track / Moira of Edges, Moira the Tart


Oana Avasilichioaei's Eight Track is a transliterary exploration of traces. Sound recordings, surveillance cameras, desert geoglyphs, drone operators, refugee interviews, animal imprints, and audio signals manifest moments of inspired wonder, systems of power, slippages, debris. In “the great era of seeing” when the boundary between tracking agent and monitored subject is worn thin by politics and commerce, Eight Track assembles a set of discordant melodies, transcriptions, and images in a struggle to hold on to agency and awe. Moina Pam Dick's Moira of Edges, Moira the Tart reimagines hermitry, penitence and ardor through the figure of artist and lay philosopher Moira (sometimes Moina) Jones. Part-hagiography, part-künstlerroman in poetic mode, Moira of Edges fractures into disclosing edge time: a limned threshold; a vibrating line; an angular meditation on form, mind, god, sex, the metaphysics of time and perception.
