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 11 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Start times: 10:30am, 12pm, 1:30pm

Discussion | The Passionate Photographer Critique (online)


It feels good to hear nice things about your photos from friends, relatives and fellow photographers, but pats on the back are far less useful than meaningful, constructive criticism. Putting our photography out into the world—seeking opinions and critique we can use to improve and push ourselves forward is essential to our development as photographers. In this session, Steve Simon, "The Passionate Photographer," will give an honest evaluation of the photographs submitted—talking about what works, what doesn’t and how photographs can be improved. You will learn as much from the critiques of other photographer’s images as you will about critiques of your own images.

Book Discussion | Living Genres in Late Modernity: American Music of the Long 1970s (online)


Charles Kronengold's book rehears the American 1970s through the workings of its musical genres. Exploring stylistic developments from the late 1960s through the early 1980s, including soul, funk, disco, pop, the nocturne, and the concerto, Kronengold treats genres as unstable constellations of works, people, practices, institutions, technologies, money, conventions, forms, ideas, and multisensory experiences. What these genres share is a significant cultural moment: they arrive just after "the sixties" and are haunted by a sense of belatedness, loss, or doubt, even as they embrace narratives of progress or abundance. These genres give us reasons--and means--to examine our culture's self-understandings. Through close readings and large-scale mappings of cultural and stylistic patterns, the book's five linked studies reveal how genres help construct personal and cultural identities that are both partial and overlapping, that exist in tension with one another, and that we experience in ebbs and flows.

Book Club | Rats: Observations on the History and Habitat of the City’s Most Unwanted Inhabitants by Robert Sullivan


Robert Sullivan’s New York Times bestselelr gives us a rat’s-eye-view of Manhattan. In this book, Sullivan manages to turn the lowly rat into the star of this most intriguing and unexpectedly elegant publication. Love them or loathe them, rats are here to stay-they are city dwellers as much as (or more than) we are, surviving on the effluvia of our society. After a year investigating a rat-infested alley just a few blocks away from Wall Street, Sullivan gets to know not just the beast but its friends and foes: the exterminators, the sanitation workers, the agitators and activists who have played their part in the centuries-old war between human city dweller and wild city rat. Sullivan looks deep into the largely unrecorded history of the city and its masses-its herds-of-rats-like mob. Funny, wise, sometimes disgusting but always compulsively readable, Rats earns its unlikely place alongside the great classics of nature writing.

Film | Tutti in Scena: The Story of Yesterday's Italian Theater in the US (2021)


The history of Italian American theater is little known even though it was alive and well since Lorenzo Da Ponte presented the first operas in Italian at the Park Theater in the 1800s before creating the Teatro Italiano (later The National Theater). Da Ponte even wrote one-act plays in Italian for his students at Columbia College. The documentary traces back to the time when Italian American theater started to become prolific in the New York area. While revealing moving and funny aspects related to the Italian American Theater and therefore to Italian immigration, the film takes us to some of the locations of Italian theaters in order to revisit those times that bring us all the way to today's Italian theater in New York. Directed by Laura Caparrotti 47 min. Followed by a Q&A with the director and other protagonists of the film.

Discussion | Artist Talk: Realms of Delusion (online)


Painter Leslie Bender Is Interviewed by Alisa Phillips, a multidisciplinary artist. From Leslie Bender's artist's statement: "My paintings and drawings address the construct of the mind and how it interprets social experience. We are affected by reams of delusion we are only dimly aware exist. The thrall of the past subverts our objectivity, creating a seething, theatrical confluence of imaginings that beleaguer us and transmute our objectivity. By manipulating formal paint qualities, overlapping and interrupting representational imagery with density, layering, intensity, light and darkness, I create a visual tapestry that evokes the effect old emotional content and past illusions have on our current perceptions."

Discussion | Cybercultures and Cyberfeminisms (online)
