Remembering is both a collective and a personal activity. In this exhibition, both are on display in relation to two World’s Fairs that took place in Flushing, Queens in 1939/40 and 1964/65. Within this exhibition, collective memory is represented by shared experiences of the Fairs and personal memory by the memorabilia drawn from the collections of people who attended and fondly recall the Fairs. While these Fairs were global in scope, their attendees were overwhelmingly local, many residing in Queens. All items on display in the exhibition have either been donated or loaned to the Queens Historical Society by those residents of Queens who attended the Fairs.

Open Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, 2:30 – 4:30 pm. Through May 31, 2015.

On this one-hour walking tour of the Noho Historic District, promenaders will see 11 buildings designated as individual New York City landmarks.

The tour will feature stories of famous as well as infamous residents and builders of these landmarks and the renowned architects who designed them. Stops will include Colonnade Row, the DeVinne Press Building, Astor Library, The Cooper Union, and the Bayard-Condict Building.

The Merchant’s House Museum’s original Greek Revival decorative plasterwork is considered by many to be the most important extant in a pre-Civil War residential interior in the United States. Its survival is now jeopardized by two major construction projects on East Fourth Street. Plaster restoration expert David Flaharty, who initially repaired portions of the Museum’s plaster in a major 1970s stabilization, will lead a unique “behind the ropes” tour and fascinating exploration of this outstanding 19th century craftsmanship. Flaharty will also discuss and demonstrate DIY decorative plaster techniques to create your own Merchant’s House.

David Flaharty, sculptor and ornamental plasterer, has worked on the restoration and new construction of ornamental plasterwork in the American Wing of the Metropolitan Museum, the Diplomatic Reception Rooms at the U.S. Department of State, and The White House. He has been involved in the preservation and restoration of the Merchant’s House for almost 40 years.

Attendance strictly limited to 30 participants; tickets available at http://merchantshouse.org/calendar/reservations/.

Awesome Asana Yoga is an hour-long exercise in body stretching and mind cleansing taught by registered yoga teacher Chelsea Best. As Chelsea says, “Awesome Asana offers a unique yogic journey, linking breath with movement in a meditative Vinyasa Flow class style designed to awaken the spirit and bring the body and mind back to a place of peace.” The class is Open Level Vinyasa, and is moderately challenging.

MJM’s Awesome Asana is part of Chelsea’s “Localize Yoga” project, which aims to make yoga affordable and accessible – to present it “as a possibility, rather than as a luxury” – to the denizens of upper Manhattan. The class is $5, and mats, should you need one, are provided.

On display in Eliza’s Tredwell’s bedroom: a two-piece day ensemble, ca. 1858, made of green silk taffeta trimmed with wide bands of black cut-silk velvet and narrow ruffles of cream-colored bobbin lace. It is likely this dress had an additional bodice with a lower neckline and shorter sleeves, which would have changed it into an evening ensemble. Also on exhibit is a theater handbill from 1860, which was discovered in the early 1960s in the pocket of the dress. The handbill is from Laura Keene’s Theatre, then located at 624 Broadway, just blocks from the Tredwells’ home.

Keene may be best known as the actress performing in Our American Cousin at Ford’s Theatre the night Abraham Lincoln was shot in April 1865. Keene rushed with water to the president’s side and cradled Lincoln’s head in her lap while waiting for help to arrive. One of her blood-stained dress cuffs is in the collection of the National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. Exhibition talk by Pamela Long, Textile Conservator.

As well as being the first designated exterior landmark in Manhattan, the Merchant's House is one of only 115 interior landmarks in New York City (1981). A significant presence in the house's interior is a pair of gas chandeliers - possibly the oldest gaseliers remaining in situ in the northeast. Conservator Julie Baker speaks on her 2006-7 project of dismantling, conserving, researching, and re-mounting these unique lighting fixtures, and explains how they influenced themuseum's future interpretation plans.

<![CDATA[Yoga At Morris-Jumel Mansion]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/07/09/yoga-at-morrisjumel http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/07/09/yoga-at-morrisjumel Date: July 9, 2015

Awesome Asana Yoga is an hour-long exercise in body stretching and mind cleansing taught by registered yoga teacher Chelsea Best. As Chelsea says, “Awesome Asana offers a unique yogic journey, linking breath with movement in a meditative Vinyasa Flow class style designed to awaken the spirit and bring the body and mind back to a place of peace.” The class is Open Level Vinyasa, and is moderately challenging.

MJM’s Awesome Asana is part of Chelsea’s “Localize Yoga” project, which aims to make yoga affordable and accessible – to present it “as a possibility, rather than as a luxury” – to the denizens of upper Manhattan. The class is $5, and mats, should you need one, are provided.

Start time: 1:00 pm

End time: 2:00 pm

Contact phone: (212) 923-8008

Location: Morris-Jumel Mansion (in Roger Morris Park)
