    The Alice Austen House’s 30th Anniversary Exhibition, Becoming Clear Comfort: History of a Landmark, brings to light the history of the museum’s National and New York City Landmark building, tracing its path from one-room Dutch farmhouse in the 1690s, to Victorian Gothic cottage and home to early American photographer Alice Austen (1866-1952), to protected landmark, to public museum. Join us to celebrate the history and legacy of Clear Comfort with tours of the public and private spaces of the home and cake for Alice’s birthday. More information.
