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.” Tours take place at 10am and 11am.

A biting satire about a young man's isolated upbringing and the race trial that sends him to the Supreme Court.

Writer Paul Beatty is an associate professor of writing at Columbia University. In 2016, he won the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Man Booker Prize for his novel The Sellout. It was the first time a writer from the United States was honored with the Man Booker.

Discussion |


Lower East Side Jewish stories often focus on Eastern European immigrants, but they weren’t the only Jews in town. Sephardic Jews from Spain and Portugal also set down roots in the neighborhood. How are these groups similar, and in what ways have they interpreted Jewish heritage and traditions differently? Culinary historian Sarah Lohman and educator Jessica Underwood Varma explore that question through everyone’s favorite cultural marker – food. Learn about (and taste!) the culinary traditions of Sephardic Jewish immigrants of the Lower East Side. Presented in partnership with the Henry Street Settlement. Sarah Lohman is author of Eight Flavors: The Untold Story of American Cuisine. Jessica Underwood Varma is an Education Associate for Costumed Interpretation at the Tenement Museum.

Authors Catherine Cusset and Hilary Reyl have a discussion about Proust and empathy in their respective novels, L’autre qu’on adorait and Kids Like Us.  Their protagonists are Thomas, a scholar of French literature who wrote a dissertation on Proust and kills himself at 39, the age at which Proust embarked on his literary journey, and Martin, a sixteen year-old boy on the autistic spectrum for whom Swann’s Way is a filter for reality. Both young men confuse art and experience in ways that prove tragic and beautiful.

"Writing in spare, crystalline prose, Mohsin Hamid conveys the experience of living in a city under siege with sharp, stabbing immediacy. . . . He also captures how insidiously violence alters the calculus of daily life: how windows with beautiful views become a liability; how funerals become smaller, more rushed affairs because of fighting in the streets. -- Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
