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.

Based on The Forsyte Saga, first published under that title in 1922, which is a series of three novels and two interludes published between 1906 and 1921 by Nobel Prize–winning English author John Galsworthy. They chronicle the vicissitudes of the leading members of a large commercial upper-middle-class English family, similar to Galsworthy's own. Only a few generations removed from their farmer ancestors, the family members are keenly aware of their status as "new money". The main character, Soames Forsyte, sees himself as a "man of property" by virtue of his ability to accumulate material possessions—but this does not succeed in bringing him pleasure. Compton Bennett, dir. 114 min.

Book Club | Vladimir Nabokov's Ada, or Ardor


Ada tells the life story of a man named Van Veen, and his lifelong love affair with his sister Ada. They meet when she is eleven and he is fourteen, believing that they are cousins (more precisely: that their fathers are cousins and that their mothers are sisters), and begin a sexual affair. They later discover that Van's father is also Ada's and her mother is also his. The story follows the various interruptions and resumptions of their affair. Both are wealthy, educated, and intelligent. Van goes on to become a world-renowned psychologist, and the book itself takes the form of his memoirs, written when he is in his nineties.  Vladimir Nabokov, aka by the pen name Vladimir Sirin, (1899-1977) was a Russian-American novelist, poet, translator and entomologist. His Lolita (1955), his most noted novel in English, was ranked fourth in the list of the Modern Library 100 Best Novels; Pale Fire (1962) was ranked 53rd on the same list, and his memoir, Speak, Memory (1951), was listed eighth on the publisher's list of the 20th century's greatest nonfiction. He was a finalist for the National Book Award for Fiction seven times. Please read the book before arriving at the book discussion. For ages 18 +.

Workshop | So You Think You Can’t Sing?


Perhaps you've heard someone say that if you can talk, you can sing, but somehow you think that doesn't apply to you. Or maybe you're an actor who absolutely won't audition for a musical because, well, you aren't Audra McDonald. SYTYCS is not an audition workshop or a traditional vocal technique class. It is a chance to get together and make sound, release fears and even enjoy the sound of your own voice in a relaxed, supportive setting. Singing is your birthright and you owe it to yourself to try this workshop.
