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

Book Discussion | Budapest’s Children: Humanitarian Relief in the Aftermath of the Great War


In the aftermath of World War I, international organizations descended upon the destitute children living in the rubble of Budapest and the city became a testing ground for how the West would handle the most vulnerable residents of a former enemy state. Friederike Kind-Kovács's book reconstructs how Budapest turned into a laboratory of transnational humanitarian intervention. Kind-Kovács explores the ways in which migration, hunger, and destitution affected children’s lives, casting light on children’s particular vulnerability in times of distress. Drawing on extensive archival research, Kind-Kovács reveals how Budapest’s children, as iconic victims of the war’s aftermath, were used to mobilize humanitarian sentiments and practices throughout Europe and the United States. With this research, Budapest’s Children investigates the dynamic interplay between local Hungarian organizations, international humanitarian donors, and the child relief recipients. In tracing transnational relief encounters, Budapest’s Children reveals how intertwined postwar internationalism and nationalism were and how child relief reinforced revisionist claims and global inequalities that still reverberate today.

Jazz | COBRA: A Jazz "Game Piece"


American composer/multi-instrumentalist John Zorn composed COBRA in 1984. The work, which has been performed regularly since, is elusive to describe. Commonly referred to as a “game piece," it is at once a composition, a framework for performance and a set of rules that organize a group of musicians into a community of sound. What sets Zorn’s game pieces apart is the intensity and degree of freedom and choice given to all members of the ensemble. Rather than a conductor who dictates interpretation or a score/lead sheet that specifies the music to be played, COBRA is led by a “prompter” who facilitates communication within the community-ensemble. All musical choices are determined through an intricate and delicate democratic process undertaken by all the members of the ensemble.
