Harlem's history is also one of the city's most dramatic, having gone through many ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic changes over the past roughly 400 years, which have resulted in a diverse array of places of worship, theaters, homes and eating establishments.

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 every Tuesday at 10am, 11am, 2pm, and 3pm until Dec. 12, 2017.

Lecture |
As millions of men, women, and children seek passage to Europe in order to escape violent conflicts, repressive governments, and a lack of economic opportunity, their movements are enabled and actively encouraged by networks of smugglers and traffickers that amass billions of dollars by facilitating their transport. Many smugglers carry out their activities with little regard for human life. Others are revered by their clients, considered saviors who deliver them to safety and the chance for a better life. Peter Tinti, co-author of Migrant, Refugee, Smuggler, Savior, will discuss the people who comprise these networks, and why efforts to combat them often do more harm than good. Speaker: Peter Tinti is an independent journalist and Senior Research Fellow at the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime. Among other outlets, his writing, reporting, and photography has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Foreign Policy, and Vice.

The Arab Spring began and ended with Tunisia. In a region beset by brutal repression, humanitarian disasters, and civil war, Tunisia's Jasmine Revolution alone gave way to a peaceful transition to a functioning democracy. Within four short years, Tunisians passed a progressive constitution, held fair parliamentary elections, and ushered in the country's first-ever democratically elected president. But did Tunisia simply avoid the misfortunes that befell its neighbors, or were there particular features that set the country apart and made it a special case? In Tunisia: An Arab Anomaly, Safwan M. Masri explores the factors that have shaped the country's exceptional experience.

Started in 1975, Metropolis Video was formed by a group of young filmmakers working in and around Manhattan Cable TV's Public Access Department. Working with one of the earliest live-switched multi-camera systems and small sound mixers, the group adopted a verité shooting style that mirrored the intensity and exuberance of the musicians, and together they captured breakout early performances by Talking Heads, Heartbreakers, Tuff Darts, and several other groups. The screening includes the world premiere of several songs from a recently discovered and digitally restored fall 1975 performance by Talking Heads at CBGB (music club in East Village). A discussion with members of Metropolis Video will follow.

This book is all pictures, no words, and shows how the animals liberate themselves from their oppressors. It’s Orwell’s Animal Farm, but in this version, the animals win, as no animal is more equal than another. Sue Coe is considered one of the foremost political artists working today. Born in England in 1951, she moved to New York in the early 1970’s. In the years that followed, she was featured on the cover of Art News and in numerous museum collections and exhibitions, including a retrospective at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington. A firm believer in the power of the media to effect change, Coe has seen her work published in The New York Times, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone and countless other periodicals.

Of all of the legendary figures who thrived in mid-19th-century Paris—a cohort that includes Victor Hugo, Baudelaire, Gustave Courbet, and Alexandre Dumas—Nadar was perhaps the most innovative, the most restless, the most modern. The first great portrait photographer, a pioneering balloonist, the first person to take an aerial photograph, and the prime mover behind the first airmail service, Nadar was one of the original celebrity artist-entrepreneurs. A kind of 19th-century Andy Warhol, he knew everyone worth knowing and photographed them all, conferring on posterity psychologically compelling portraits of Manet, Sarah Bernhardt, Delacroix, Daumier and countless others—a priceless panorama of Parisian celebrity.

The Lost Keys is a co-ed a cappella group based in New York City. From flashmob weddings to Rockwood Music Hall, this group has become a staple in the aca-music scene. 2015 marked the release of their debut EP, Unlocked. It was named one of the Top Albums of the Year by RARB, including two songs on the “Top songs of the year” list. Visit www.thelostkeysnyc.com for more information. The evening will be hosted in a site-specific installation titled La Deliciosa Show, conceived by the artist Radamés “Juni” Figueroa as part of the High Line’s open-air group exhibition, Mutations, which looks at how boundaries between the natural world and culture are defined, crossed, and obliterated.
