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.

During the last 60 years, no cookbook editor has influenced American culinary life more than did Judith Jones (1924-2017). In her 57 years at Alfred A. Knopf, she launched the careers of many major food writers, beginning with Julia Child, Marcella Hazan, and Madhur Jaffrey. Almost 50 years ago she introduced the British scholar-writer Claudia Roden to American audiences. In 1976 she inaugurated an era of serious investigation into African American cooking with Edna Lewis's The Taste of Country Cooking. She created the ambitious series Knopf Cooks American, which surveyed traditions ranging from Southern baking (Bill Neal's Biscuits, Spoonbread, and Sweet Potato Pie) to the Italian-American kitchens of Rhode Island (Nancy Verde Barr's We Called It Macaroni). She made Lidia Bastianich a household name, and gave cooks an enlarged understanding of American and worldwide Jewish cuisine through her many editor-writer partnerships with Joan Nathan. Panelists include Joan Nathan, author of King Solomon's Table: A Culinary Exploration of Jewish Cooking from Around the World (2017); Ray Sokolov, author of Steal the Menu: A Memoir of Forty Years in Food (2013); Laura Shapiro, author of What She Ate: Six Remarkable Women and the Food That Tells Their Stories (2017); Anne Mendelson, author of Milk: The Surprising Story of Milk Through the Ages (2008); Madhur Jaffrey, author of Vegetarian India: A Journey Through the Best of Indian Home Cooking (2015); and Bronwyn Dunne, Judith Jones's step-daughter. Moderated by Food Studies faculty member Andrew F. Smith.
