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.

Do you feel like there is creativity hiding inside of you, but are not sure where to find it? There are endless tutorials on taking pictures, but how do you figure out what to shoot in the first place? In order to develop a unique point of view, we have to understand how creativity works. To answer to these questions and many others surrounding the creative process Adam Marelli will take you through his findings which are the subject of his new book, Picture This: A Roadmap for Photographers and Their Creativity. He will also reveal a twenty three point process he uses for all of his work and lay out a map so you can successfully navigate the uncharted waters of your own imagination.

Life in today’s world is stressful. People are anxious about their health, their finances, their relationships, their safety and their work. Doctor’s and medical practitioners are promoting the benefits of meditation to relieve stress and anxiety.  By sitting in meditation, we can calm the body and the mind. We can slow our brain waves to states of relaxation. When we are in a state of physical and mental calmness, we have more control over our reactions towards life’s stressors.  Through meditation we can cope with the stresses of life. Meditation helps us replace anxiety with joy and peace. Dr. Frank Pawlowski delivers this informative lecture. There will even be a short meditation sitting.

Pyong Gap Min, Distinguished Professor of Sociology at Queens College, will give a talk on his critique of Sara Soh’s rejection of the Japanese “comfort women” system as sexual slavery. According to Min, Soh’s 2008 book, The Comfort Women: Sexual Violence and Postcolonial Memory in Korea and Japan, is the only comprehensive English-language book that covers both the “comfort women” issue and the redress movement for the victims of Japanese military sexual slavery, but it has provided many controversial arguments.  Prof. Min will try to show that many of Soh’s arguments provided to reject the sexual slavery thesis conflict with facts and logically unsound. Prof. Min is completing a book project focusing the redress movement for the victims of Japanese military sexual slavery.

What do we mean when we use the term 'failed states'? This book presents the origins of the term, how it shaped the conceptual framework for international development and security in the post-Cold War era, and why. The book also questions how specific international interventions on both aid and security fronts - greatly varied by actor - based on these outsiders' perceptions of state failure create conditions that fit their characterizations of failed states.

In 1975, news broke that New York City was on the brink of fiscal collapse, shocking people in the city and around the nation. How could the country’s largest metropolis be nearly broke? Over the rest of the year, the city’s fate hung in the balance as it struggled to win aid from Washington, DC—where President Gerald Ford and his advisers greeted New York with the attitude summed up in the famous Daily News headline, “Ford to City: Drop Dead.” Even though the city did not, in the end, go bankrupt, the crisis and response transformed approaches to city governance and popular views of the role of business in New York. How can the story of New York’s fiscal crisis help us think about the possibilities and limits of urban politics today, especially as Mayor Bill de Blasio seeks re-election? What relevance does the fiscal crisis of the 1970s have for our current era of fiscal crises—in Detroit, Hartford, Puerto Rico, and for many states around the nation? And how might the history of New York in the 1970s enable us to reflect on the rise of Donald Trump, who got his start in Manhattan real estate at that time? Featuring: Kimberly K Phillips-Fein

From the vantage point of 100 years, what was the lasting significance of the Russian Revolution? Some have argued that European fascism was a direct response to the Bolshevik seizure of power, and hence that the Russian Revolution helped produce the Second World War and the postwar division of Europe. Others have seen the Revolution as inaugurating a form of rule continuous with earlier Russian authoritarian patterns; from this perspective, the Revolution had relatively little impact on the long-term trajectory of Russian society itself, at least. Against this background, the panelists will address the nature of the Russian Revolution and its historical consequences up to the present day.

With incredible views and countless amenities, New York City’s waterfront parks are year-round destinations for visitors and residents alike. And while these waterfront parks have been traditionally designed for recreation, with increasing frequency, coastal cities are redesigning waterfront parks and public spaces for the dual purpose of providing both recreational spaces as well as protection from flooding and extreme weather events. This panel will discuss the benefits, challenges, and opportunities in designing resilient and sustainable parks and public spaces that protect our neighborhoods while also providing the recreational opportunities and amenities for all New Yorkers. NYC Parks Commissioner Mitchell J. Silver will host a public discussion on resilient and sustainable design with Principal of SWA/Balsley Thomas Balsley, and Principal-in-Charge of WXY architecture + urban design Claire Weisz.

Craig Gropper,  the artist’s grandson, discusses Gropper’s art from the political cartoons to murals, and how his convictions guided his life’s work but, ultimately, cost him his livelihood. After an accomplished career as a TV journalist, Craig Gropper decided to devote himself to the family business. He now manages his grandfather’s legacy. From the 1920s through the middle of the 20th century, artist William Gropper was one of the country’s best known social critics. His drawings and paintings challenged the powerful on behalf of the powerless, whether featured in newspapers and magazines or in galleries and museums.
