City Walk | Historic Brooklyn Bridge Tour


On May 24, 1883, journalist Montgomery Schuyler said "It so happens that the work which is likely to be our most durable monument, and to convey some knowledge of us to the most remote posterity, is a work of bare utility; not a shrine, not a fortress, not a palace, but a bridge." This tour will tell the story of the world-famous Brooklyn Bridge, and examine its ever-present historical, technological, and cultural impact. Note: this tour is held early, as to avoid the massive crowds that the bridge continues to attract, 135 years after its completion.

Fair | Community Care Fair


The Community Care Fair will provide a fascinating interactive exploration of our health, and how we care for each other’s well-being. Created for adults and children alike, this free event is planned in conjunction with the exhibition Germ City: Microbes and the Metropolis currently on view at the museum, which explores how disease has changed us physically, socially, and culturally—and the surprising interplay between people and pathogens in an urban context. Among the Fair’s many engaging activities, adults can play an actual role in Weill Cornell’s “StuckOnU” study. By providing their cell phones for swabbing, they can learn about their phone’s molecular signature – and may even get interesting insights into aspects of their lives from their own personal ancestry to the last thing they ate! (This is limited to the first 96 participants.) Children can get in on the action by swabbing their hands and learning how to plate bacteria for culturing.  Looking under a microscope will help them see the rich combination of bacteria that make up our microbiome. Among many health-related activities, the fair will feature a free acupuncture experience with Proyecto Salud y Acupuntura Para El Pueblo and opportunities to learn about healing objects from community-based organizations such as Moon Mother Apothecary. And there will be plenty of healthy food tastings.

Talk | Honoring the Creators of The Negro Motorist Green Book

The event will include appearances by members of Victor and Alma's families and presentations from local elected officials. Refreshments will be provided by Trader Joe's and the National Writers Union.   Published between 1936-1967, the Green Book was a travel guide which provided information to black families on where it was safe for them to stop, buy gas, eat, and spend the night across the U.S. during Jim Crow. The book was sold by mail order and through black-owned businesses with an estimated 15,000 copies published per year. Victor Hugo Green was a New York postal worker who lived in Harlem. Along with his wife Alma, the couple provided an invaluable service to the black community during Jim Crow.

Play | The Uncanny Adventures of Robert Robur: Futuristic Murder Mystery


The play is an adaptation of the last, unfinished novel by Mirosław Nahacz. Its action takes place in the future, when the media has taken total control of reality, fabricating information that society blindly believes. Public opinion is shaken, however, by a series of mysterious deaths, and all the clues lead to the protagonist, Robert Robur, a young screenwriter. As revolutionary fervor builds and a group of rebels plots the overthrow of the Office of Energy dictatorship, the audience follows attempts to solve the mysterious murder case. A production of The Lang Theater Program.

Poetry Reading | Under the Aleppo Sun: Remembering a City That Is No More


As the Syrian war has raged over the past several years, the world has watched in horror. And that horror is particularly concentrated on the city of Aleppo, which has been subject to almost incomparable devastation and deprivation. Aleppo is Alice Attie’s home city, where her grandparents were born, and with the poems in Under the Aleppo Sun, she takes us there—to the months before Assad unleashed his attack in 2011. Through her eyes we see a city that is largely no more.
