The Tottenville Historical Society invites you to visit Alice’s Garden, an arrangement of rare and unique architectural terra cotta ornaments. The garden is dedicated to the artisans of the Atlantic Terra Cotta Co., Tottenville, who crafted them more than 100 years ago.

The sculptured pieces, displayed with native plants in a natural landscape on the side lawn of the Biddle House, 70 Satterlee Street, exemplify the artistry of the firm’s talented but, for the most part, anonymous workforce.

Alice’s Garden is free and open to the public during regular park hours. Additional information about the Atlantic Terra Cotta Co. is available inside the H.H. Biddle House (open Saturdays from noon to 3:00 p.m. or by appointment)

The garden is made available with funding support from The Staten Island Foundation, The Nicotra Foundation, and members of the Tottenville Historical Society.

Start time: 7:00 am

End time: 7:00 pm

White-tail deer are herbivores, which means they eat plants. While there are no plant species that are truly deer-proof, deer do develop preferences and will ignore many types of plants in their grazing patterns. Planting with a high diversity of plant species will minimize the impact that any deer will have in your garden.

The gardens around the Conference House Visitors' Center feature plants that deer are less likely to eat. See which plants may work for your home!

WildlifeNYC is a campaign launched by the City of New York to increase public awareness about urban wildlife, and how humans can live harmoniously with the animals who also call the Big Apple home.

A Collective Utterance is a solo exhibition of photographs by the artist Naima Green, presenting a selection of images culled from her ongoing series “Jewels from The Hinterland” (2013–present). With black and brown artists, writers, culture workers, and thinkers positioned centrally in each image, the exhibition spans green spaces throughout New York City—such as Riverside Park, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and Central Park—as well as select sites across the United States.

With each photograph, Green offers a statement of quietude, solace, insistence, and strength, making visible a community purportedly relegated to the margins, yet who critically inform dominant tastes and trends. These gentle, nuanced compositions are particularly urgent within the context of seemingly interminable sociopolitical crisis, where black and brown bodies are continually imaged as sites of violence and trauma. Within the framework of A Collective Utterance, each individual is left to be—in all of their tenderness, complexities, and intricacies.

A Collective Utterance is organized by Oluremi C. Onabanjo.

"I can't believe that it has taken me 46 years to complete this challenging exhibit. A project that I never dreamt could possibly fulfill such an exciting promise, let alone take as long as it has! It started out innocently enough in the winter of 1972, on an early Sunday morning drive in and around New York City's fabled waterfront, accompanied by my then 4-year-old son James, plus an old Ciroflex camera and a few rolls of black and white film. I remember how fascinated the little fellow was by the sights, smells, and texture of the area. Since this visit occurred on a Sunday, all was quiet on the waterfront. There were, anchored right next to him, tugboats, cargo ships, ocean liners and U.S. naval vessels to name just a few of the more impressive sights. And then, I must not forget to make mention of the spectacular view from the Staten Island Ferry, of the Twin Towers looming proudly in the distance. Since that time many things have changed in and around the harbor. However, the nostalgia of that visit still dwells within and has been captured by me in this series of stunning watercolors executed over a period of years, with diminutive James ("Jamie") as poignant model." - Michael Mendel

Dr. Dolittle
After a fender bender, Dr. John Dolittle gets back his childhood ability to converse with animals.

When Dolittle's strange behavior catches the attention of his wife, Lisa, he winds up in a mental institution. Luckily, he has some animal friends to help him out of his hairy situation.

Dr. Dolittle is PG-13 for crude humor, and some language. This movie is 85 minutes long.

Join NYC Parks and the New York City Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment for a free film.

When the transition is being made from silent films to 'talkies', everyone has trouble adapting. Don and Lina have been cast repeatedly as a romantic couple, but when their latest film is remade into a musical, only Don has the voice for the new singing part. After a lot of practise with a diction coach, Lina still sounds terrible, and Kathy, a bright young aspiring actress, is hired to record over her voice.

The Tottenville Historical Society invites you to visit Alice’s Garden, an arrangement of rare and unique architectural terra cotta ornaments. The garden is dedicated to the artisans of the Atlantic Terra Cotta Co., Tottenville, who crafted them more than 100 years ago.

The sculptured pieces, displayed with native plants in a natural landscape on the side lawn of the Biddle House, 70 Satterlee Street, exemplify the artistry of the firm’s talented but, for the most part, anonymous workforce.

Alice’s Garden is free and open to the public during regular park hours. Additional information about the Atlantic Terra Cotta Co. is available inside the H.H. Biddle House (open Saturdays from noon to 3:00 p.m. or by appointment)

The garden is made available with funding support from The Staten Island Foundation, The Nicotra Foundation, and members of the Tottenville Historical Society.

White-tail deer are herbivores, which means they eat plants. While there are no plant species that are truly deer-proof, deer do develop preferences and will ignore many types of plants in their grazing patterns. Planting with a high diversity of plant species will minimize the impact that any deer will have in your garden.

The gardens around the Conference House Visitors' Center feature plants that deer are less likely to eat. See which plants may work for your home!

A Collective Utterance is a solo exhibition of photographs by the artist Naima Green, presenting a selection of images culled from her ongoing series “Jewels from The Hinterland” (2013–present). With black and brown artists, writers, culture workers, and thinkers positioned centrally in each image, the exhibition spans green spaces throughout New York City—such as Riverside Park, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and Central Park—as well as select sites across the United States.

With each photograph, Green offers a statement of quietude, solace, insistence, and strength, making visible a community purportedly relegated to the margins, yet who critically inform dominant tastes and trends. These gentle, nuanced compositions are particularly urgent within the context of seemingly interminable sociopolitical crisis, where black and brown bodies are continually imaged as sites of violence and trauma. Within the framework of A Collective Utterance, each individual is left to be—in all of their tenderness, complexities, and intricacies.

A Collective Utterance is organized by Oluremi C. Onabanjo.

"I can't believe that it has taken me 46 years to complete this challenging exhibit. A project that I never dreamt could possibly fulfill such an exciting promise, let alone take as long as it has! It started out innocently enough in the winter of 1972, on an early Sunday morning drive in and around New York City's fabled waterfront, accompanied by my then 4-year-old son James, plus an old Ciroflex camera and a few rolls of black and white film. I remember how fascinated the little fellow was by the sights, smells, and texture of the area. Since this visit occurred on a Sunday, all was quiet on the waterfront. There were, anchored right next to him, tugboats, cargo ships, ocean liners and U.S. naval vessels to name just a few of the more impressive sights. And then, I must not forget to make mention of the spectacular view from the Staten Island Ferry, of the Twin Towers looming proudly in the distance. Since that time many things have changed in and around the harbor. However, the nostalgia of that visit still dwells within and has been captured by me in this series of stunning watercolors executed over a period of years, with diminutive James ("Jamie") as poignant model." - Michael Mendel

We are going to have a cooked pot of the traditional cultural Pueblo dish of Anasazi beans and Ham Hock made from these beans. While enjoying these unusually tasty beans, a garden member will be reading an illustrated children's Native American folktale called The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses by Paul Goble.

The storytelling and artwork of The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses expresses love and harmony with nature. It is the story of a young Native American girl devoted to the care of her tribe's horses and how she eventually becomes one of the horses forever running free.

Please bring your kids; the food is first come/first serve with priority given to families who come for the book reading.

A Brief History of Beans and Peas

Beans are intricately woven into the fabric of human history. The first "permanent cultures" evolved when hunter-gatherers and nomadic people began tilling the earth and developing systems of agriculture, and beans were among the first cultivated crops.

Peas have been carbon dated back to 9750 BC in Thailand; Native people of Mexico and Peru were cultivating bean crops as far back as 7000 BC; the use of lentils has been traced back as far as 6750 BC in parts of the present day Middle East. Chickpeas, lentils, and fava beans have been found in Egyptian tombs that date back at least 4000 years. About the same time, (around 1500 BC) parts of present-day Asia were growing and using soybeans. In a completely different part of the world, Native Americans and Mexicans were working with the haricot bean, a diverse category that includes runner beans, kidney beans, and lima beans, and its adaptability helped it to become a stable crop. It is apparent that beans were an integral part of the development of many cultures throughout the world.

Anasazi Beans at Dorothy K. McGowan Memorial Garden

The garden has acquired some Anasazi Beans of the Ancestral Pueblo. These beans were found in the cliff dwellings of Mesa Verde National Park. Mesa Verde was the home of the Ancestral Pueblo people of Southwest Colorado for over 700 years from 600 to 1300 AD. Anasazi is a navajo word meaning ancient one and these beans are indeed ancient. These beans have been continously grown for over 1,400 years on the same high altitude of 7,000 feet on dry land soil. They are considered the most prettiest and tastiest of all the beans that the Ancestral Pueblo grew.

Kedi (Turkey)
Directed by Ceyda Torun; 2017, 79 mins.
*Preceded by CatCam. Directed by Seth Keal; 2012; 16 mins.
Programmed by Film Forum.

The street cats of Istanbul: hundreds of thousands of them roam Turkey’s megacity freely, wandering in and out of people’s lives, an essential part of the communities that make the city so rich. In KEDI, filmmaker Ceyda Torun and her nimble cinematographer, Charlie Wuppermann, train their prowling, cat’s eye-level cameras on the stories of seven such felines — Sari, Bengü, Aslan Parçasi, Psikopat, Deniz, Gamsiz, and Duman— stalking these peripatetic creatures through streets, alleyways, deserted basements, and rooftops. “Delightful and visually splendid” – Stephanie Zacharek, TIME.

The Tottenville Historical Society invites you to visit Alice’s Garden, an arrangement of rare and unique architectural terra cotta ornaments. The garden is dedicated to the artisans of the Atlantic Terra Cotta Co., Tottenville, who crafted them more than 100 years ago.

Alice’s Garden is free and open to the public during regular park hours. Additional information about the Atlantic Terra Cotta Co. is available inside the H.H. Biddle House (open Saturdays from noon to 3:00 p.m. or by appointment)
