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

Book Club | Saved at the Seawall: Stories from the September 11 Boat Lift by Jessica DuLong


Jessica DuLong's book is the definitive history of the largest ever waterborne evacuation. DuLong reveals the dramatic story of how the New York Harbor maritime community heroically delivered stranded commuters, residents, and visitors out of harm's way. Even before the US Coast Guard called for "all available boats," tugs, ferries, dinner boats, and other vessels had sped to the rescue from points all across New York Harbor. In less than nine hours, captains and crews transported nearly half a million people from Manhattan.

Book Discussion | Baldwin Lee: Picturing Black Americans


In 1983, Baldwin Lee (b. 1951) left his home in Knoxville, Tennessee, with his 4 x 5 view camera and set out on the first of a series of road trips to photograph the American South. The subject of his pictures were Black Americans: at home, at work, and at play, in the street, and among nature. This project would consume Lee--a first-generation Chinese American--for the remainder of that decade, and it would forever transform his perception of his country, its people, and himself. The resulting archive from this seven-year period contains nearly ten thousand black-and-white negatives. This monograph presents a selection of eighty-eight images edited by the photographer Barney Kulok, accompanied by an interview with Lee by the curator Jessica Bell Brown and an essay by the writer Casey Gerald. Arriving almost four decades after Lee began his journey, this publication reveals the artist's unique commitment to picturing life in America and, in turn, one of the most piercing and poignant bodies of work of its time.

Lecture | Ashes to Artifact: Cultural Death, Repair, and Restitution of the Benin Bronzes (online)


Is it possible—or desirable—to ‘correct’ a relation of power between subjugated peoples and their colonizers if the originary imperial violence continues to be perpetuated in the present day? In 1897 during the height of the Scramble for Africa, the British colonial military invaded the Kingdom of Benin (modern day Nigeria) and looted 10,000 sacred ancestral artifacts from the royal palace. These pieces, often referred to as the Benin bronzes, largely remain scattered across North America and Western Europe in museums and galleries despite decades of calls for their restitution. Cresa Pugh, Assistant Professor of Sociology at The New School for Social Research, explores what it means to attempt to overcome more than a century of imperial violence against this collection of artifacts and their descendants by their captors, Western governments, and the contemporary museum industrial complex. What does corrective repair look and feel like in the postcolonial context and can contemporary Indigenous art forms and practices provide one method through which restitution is achieved and the healing process between oppressor and oppressed begins? Pugh’s lecture is punctuated by poetry readings by Nigerian poet Inua Ellams.

Book Discussion | I Fear My Pain Interests You: Perils of a Famous Family


In Stephanie LaCava’s new novel, Margot is the child of renowned musicians and the product of a particularly punky upbringing. Burnt-out from the burden of expectation and the bad end of the worst relationship yet, she leaves New York and heads to to the Pacific Northwest. She’s seeking to escape both the eyes of the world and the echoing voice of that last bad man. But a chance encounter with a dubious doctor in a graveyard, and the discovery of a dozen old film reels, opens the door to a study of both the peculiarities of her body and the absurdities of her famous family.

Book Discussion | The Divorce Colony: Author Talks About her Book and History of How Women Revolutionized Marriage and Found Freedom on the American Frontier


For a woman traveling without her husband in the late nineteenth century, there was only one reason to take the train all the way to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. On the American frontier, the new state's laws offered a tempting freedom often difficult to obtain elsewhere: divorce. With the laxest divorce laws in the country, five railroad lines, and the finest hotel for hundreds of miles, the small city became the unexpected headquarters for society divorcees--infamous around the world as the "divorce colony." These Gilded Age divorce seekers put Sioux Falls at the center of a heated national debate over the future of American marriage, one that would forever change the country's understanding of marriage. In this talk, April White, author of The Divorce Colony, will explore this enlightening, infuriating, and surprisingly feminist chapter in American history. It is a story both deliciously scandalous and undeniably important, as the United States continues to debate a woman's autonomy over her own life.
