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.

<![CDATA[Creating Landmarks: Revival Style Townhouses of 19th Century Manhattan]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/03/10/creating-landmarks-revival-style-townhouses-of-19th-century-manhattan http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/03/10/creating-landmarks-revival-style-townhouses-of-19th-century-manhattan Date: March 10, 2015

The 19th century European and American passion for historic, romantic and picturesque architecture combined in a profusion of revival styles including the Greek, Gothic, Renaissance, Italian, French, and English among others. A rapidly expanding population with increasing wealth during this period made New York City a uniquely fertile site for architects, craftsmen and home goods manufacturers to develop their art and display their sophistication in the emerging “Empire City.” The resultant urban landscape became a fantastic mix of styles, colors, patterns and decoration – and ultimately the stuff of our beloved historic districts and individual landmarks of today.

Architect and lecturer Curtis Estes returns for the final installment in his three-part series exploring the development of that most essential of all urban building types – the townhouse.

Doors slam, floorboards creak, voices call into the night. For more than seven decades, mystifying and mysterious tales have surrounded the Merchant’s House, leading The New York Times to call it “Manhattan’s Most Haunted House.” On this candlelit tour, venture into the shadows of history to see the house where eight people died, and hear true tales of inexplicable occurrences from those who actually experienced them. Many of the most peculiar occurrences have been related to the Tredwells’ Irish servants, and so this special tour will include the 4th floor servants’ quarters.

<![CDATA[At the Tredwells’ Table: Cooking Demonstration and Tasting]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/03/14/at-the-tredwells-table-cooking-demonstration-and-tasting http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/03/14/at-the-tredwells-table-cooking-demonstration-and-tasting Date: March 14, 2015

Since ancient times, Irish cooking has been a simple, hearty cuisine full of tradition and strong ties to the land. Throughout the turbulent tale of Irish history, Irish cooking and its star ingredient, the potato, have taken culinary hard knocks, yet the cuisine emerges triumphant in its ability to coax exceptional flavor from natural ingredients with the simplest of preparations.

In celebration of the Tredwells’ Irish servants, we will examine the true history of Irish food and its well-deserved and celebrated modern renaissance. Professionally trained chef and Merchant’s House tour guide Carl Raymond offers a discussion of Irish cooking over the past 400 years with a focus on the 19th century and the lives of the Irish servants who once worked in the Merchant’s House, as well as a cooking demonstration and tasting. Two of Ireland’s classic dishes will be prepared: a rich Colcannon soup with potato and cabbage and an authentic meat and Guinness stew. In addition, modern culinary tips and techniques on preparing these classic dishes will be demonstrated. The presentation will take place in the original kitchen where the servants worked and will be accompanied by a choice of Guinness or wine. Each guest will receive a recipe booklet to take home.

Join us for a walking tour, In the Footsteps of Bridget Murphy, and a backstairs look at the Merchant’s House, “arguably the oldest intact site of Irish habitation in New York City” according to Time Out New York. Come climb the narrow staircase to the newly restored fourth-floor servants’ quarters and see where the Tredwells’ four Irish servants lived and did some of their work. You’ll learn why it would have been impossible to run a home like the Merchant’s House without them.

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.

The World of Tomorrow is a feature documentary that looks at the great 1939 New York World’s Fair. Five years in the making, this critically acclaimed film uses home movies, newsreels, industrial and promotional films, cartoons, still photographs and other vintage graphics to study the Art Deco extravaganaza that was the World’s Fair.

Since the whole Fair offered a look at Tomorrow and then documented that effort on film, The World of Tomorrow also offers a look back into the future.

NYC Parks is pleased to present the exhibition: “Native Ensemble: Artists Chronicle Staten Island’s Natural Spaces”, featuring local Staten Island artists that will run from February 13 – March 29, 2015, with an opening reception on Thursday, February 12th from 7-9 p.m. in the Lenape Gallery at the Conference House Park Visitor Center. The exhibition is curated by Sarah Yuster.

The eight artists featured in the show: David DiLillo, Ann Marie McDonnell, Michael McWeeney, Gail Middleton, Bill Murphy, Kristi Pfister, Melissa West and Sarah Yuster will present inspired 2-D and 3-D works created in a variety of art mediums that explore Staten Island’s natural elements and open spaces in conventional and unconventional techniques. Allusions to the human narrative in these works give way in an effort to shape the poetic and elusive concept of time and nature.

Lenape Gallery hours are Tuesday – Friday 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., and Saturday, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. For additional information please contact Frank Gessner at (718) 227-1463.

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.

Preservationists were once welcomed in urban environments as the lynchpin for stabilization and recovery and the key to balanced and intelligent development. Now they’re often portrayed as adversaries and obstacles to growth. Why this flip-flop? Is this accurate? Does the preservation movement still have an important positive role to play in New York City? And what is that role?

Hugh Hardy is the founding partner of H3 Hardy Collaboration Architecture, known for design of distinctive new buildings, restoration of historic structures, and planning projects for the public realm across America. A major presence in New York, H3 has completed restoration of Radio City Music Hall, multiple projects for the Brooklyn Academy of Music and New York Botanical Garden’s Leon Levy Visitor Center together with restoration of Bryant Park. Their faithful recreations of the New Victory and the New Amsterdam theaters on 42nd Street were pivotal to reemergence of this famed street as one of New York’s premier places of entertainment. Mr. Hardy’s work is consistently recognized by civic, architectural, and preservation organizations for a progressive spirit and sensitive understanding of context.
Reception follows.

29 East Fourth Street was home not only to the eight Tredwell children, but also to two young granddaughters. Come tour the house and learn what life was like for children (and adults) in the 1850s, from schoolwork and chores to games and play. Could you carry a bucket of coal up steep stairs? Do you have a calling card? A top hat? What, no hoop skirt? How did you take a bath? And penmanship really, really mattered.

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.

<![CDATA[Remembering Yesterday: Queens and Its World's Fairs]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/05/24/remembering-yesterday-queens-and-its-worlds-fairs http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/05/24/remembering-yesterday-queens-and-its-worlds-fairs Date: May 24, 2015

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.

Start time: 2:30 pm

End time: 4:30 pm
