It is said that the Internet is making the world a smaller place, connecting people and places that were once hugely separated by many miles and mindsets. However, the world has been getting “smaller” for years — in large part due to immigration and the free flow of ideas that come with it.

Now on view at the Conference House Park visitor center and at the Biddle House in Conference House Park, this exhibit highlights narratives of important pioneers in the fields of maritime navigation and communication so people today can understand how our ancestors started making the world “smaller” slowly but surely over centuries by learning how to travel vast oceans. The exhibit also includes a selection of devices, navigational maps and prints from the Museum of Maritime Navigation and Communication (located in Rosebank, S.I.), devoted to preserving and displaying devices and equipment that were used over the years to navigate waters worldwide. This exhibit also includes a working model of a dry dock.

<![CDATA[The World's Fair That Almost Was and Other Stories of Marine Park]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2018/06/28/the-worlds-fair-that-almost-was-other-stories-of-marine-park http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2018/06/28/the-worlds-fair-that-almost-was-other-stories-of-marine-park Date: June 28, 2018

A lecture given by Urban Planner/Historian Thomas J. Campanella of Cornell University.

This talk will focus on the largely forgotten history of Brooklyn's Marine Park, an ancient estuarine landscape and native American settlement site that became a kind of "blank slate" for visionary proposals in the early 20th century. Among these was Congressman Sol Bloom's plan for a 1932 Washington Bicentennial Exposition. Meant to be the largest fair ever staged, it would feature pavilions for 46 nations, a Knute Rockne stadium for 200,000 spectators and a centerpiece tower "taller and greater than either the Woolworth Building or the Eiffel Tower.” Though the initiative fell apart, it set into motion a campaign that eventually led to the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Before and again after Bloom, Marine Park was the focus of efforts to build a vast urban playground to complement the passive, pastoral landscape of Prospect Park. Stretching from Fillmore Avenue to Plum Beach, the 1,700-acre complex was laid out as a recreation ground of industrial scale—to tap and defuse the restless energies of the urban working classes, and impart paternalistic lessons of discipline, cooperation and civic virtue.

It is said that the Internet is making the world a smaller place, connecting people and places that were once hugely separated by many miles and mindsets. However, the world has been getting “smaller” for years — in large part due to immigration and the free flow of ideas that come with it.

Now on view at the Conference House Park visitor center and at the Biddle House in Conference House Park, this exhibit highlights narratives of important pioneers in the fields of maritime navigation and communication so people today can understand how our ancestors started making the world “smaller” slowly but surely over centuries by learning how to travel vast oceans. The exhibit also includes a selection of devices, navigational maps and prints from the Museum of Maritime Navigation and Communication (located in Rosebank, S.I.), devoted to preserving and displaying devices and equipment that were used over the years to navigate waters worldwide. This exhibit also includes a working model of a dry dock.

America turns 242 this year, and even if we start counting from the arrival of the Dutch in 1642, New York City is less than 400 years old — a baby by global standards!

As a burgeoning metropolis in a young republic, 19th-century New York sought to strengthen its position in the world by connecting itself to history—especially Ancient Greece, regarded as the birthplace of democracy. From these efforts, the Greek Revival style of architecture was born, linking New York to the glorious “Golden Age” of Athens in the 5th century BCE.

Join us for a walking tour focused on Greek Revival architecture in the neighborhood of the 1832 Merchant’s House Museum, itself an example of this powerfully symbolic style. Along the way, we’ll learn about the specific features of Greek Revival and compare the realities of Ancient Greek civilization with the ideal presented in 19th-century America. Enjoy Greek nibbles in the garden.

5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. – Walking tour #1
6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. – Reception in the garden of the Merchant’s House Museum
7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. – Walking tour #2

Co-sponsored by the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation.

Please note: Reservations required. Open in late June.

Join us for a journey back in time to the elite ‘Bond Street area’, home to Astors, Vanderbilts, Delanos – and the Tredwells, who lived in the Merchant’s House. You’ll see how the neighborhood surrounding the Tredwells’ home evolved from a refined and tranquil residential enclave into a busy commercial center. Visit important 19th-century landmark buildings on this tour through 21st century NoHo.

And what’s a plunge into the past without a little scandal? On the bustling Astor Place, imagine the drama of events that led to the Opera House riot of 1849, among the bloodiest in American history. And visit the site of the notorious 1857 Bond Street murder of Harvey Burdell, one of the City’s still unsolved crimes!

The tour begins promptly, outside the Merchant's House Museum.

Embark on an adventure back in time at our Summer History Camp at Van Cortlandt House Museum. Your child will learn about the Van Cortlandt Family’s and New York City’s important roles in the formation of our country all while having fun.

Campers are immersed in the everyday life of a child in the 18th century as they wear period style clothing and make and play 18th century toys and games. Typical chores such as churning butter, cooking, gathering wood and hauling water are all part of the full History Camp experience.

Children will also travel in time back to the early years of the Revolutionary War and experience the life of a soldier in General George Washington’s army. They will lend a hand with pitching tents and setting up camp. “Enlistment” in the army, military drill, and reconnaissance, are also part of the action.

Camp is lead by Van Cortlandt House Museum’s professional staff, talented living history volunteers, and college students studying material culture and history. Daily activities for Adventures in Time Summer History Camp are designed in keeping with New York State 4th grade curriculum standards and are appropriate for children ages 6 - 12. Campers bring their own lunches but VCHM provides daily snacks and drinking water. Adventures in Time is a technology-free experience. Campers may bring a cell phone with them to camp but all phones will be left with the administrative staff in the Welcome Center/Office during camp hours.

Join us for a journey back in time to the elite ‘Bond Street area’, home to Astors, Vanderbilts, Delanos – and the Tredwells, who lived in the Merchant’s House. You’ll see how the neighborhood surrounding the Tredwells’ home evolved from a refined and tranquil residential enclave into a busy commercial center. Visit important 19th-century landmark buildings on this tour through 21st century NoHo.

And what’s a plunge into the past without a little scandal? On the bustling Astor Place, imagine the drama of events that led to the Opera House riot of 1849, among the bloodiest in American history. And visit the site of the notorious 1857 Bond Street murder of Harvey Burdell, one of the City’s still unsolved crimes!

The tour begins promptly, outside the Merchant's House Museum.
