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.” Tours take place at 10am and 11am.

Dance Performance | PRIVATE: Wear a mask when you talk to me: Improvisation and Intuition


A performance by artist and choreographer Alexandra Bachzetsis stages banal and mutating gestures from myriad gendered references—including Greek Tsifteteli and Greek Zeibekiko dance. The work is inspired by Trisha Brown’s prescient 1983 work Set and Reset, as well as Marianne Wex’s 1979 Let’s Take Back Our Space: “Female” and “Male” Body Language as a Result of Patriarchal Structures, two works that challenge the relationship between improvisation and choreography, intuition, and socialized or coded gestures. This work was first presented in 2016 at the Festival DañsFabrik in Brest, France.
