South Street Seaport Museum Expands Schedule for Public Cruises on W.O. Decker @ South Street Seaport Museum
Sep 18 – Sep 22 all-day

South Street Seaport Museum
Expands Schedule for
Public Cruises on W.O. Decker

Wednesdays – Sundays
Through September

The South Street Seaport Museum announces an expanded schedule for the public cruises on Tugboat W.O. Decker. Take a 60-minute ride on New York’s last remaining New-York-built wooden tugboat and see the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and the lower Manhattan skyline as never before. Decker will cruise past Governor’s Island with Battery Park, One World Trade Center and all of the lower Manhattan skyline as a backdrop and head to the Statue of Liberty for stunning harbor views. This May marked the first time Decker was available for public cruises in nearly a decade, now with an expanded schedule: Wed-Friday: 2pm and 7pm. Sat & Sun: 1:30pm, 3pm, 4:30pm and 7pm. Decker Tours are $35 and include admission to the Museum. Cruises can be booked in advance at https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/1011575.

Tickets for a cruise plus Museum Admission are $35 ($29 for seniors and students, $15 for children 10 and up) The 7pm cruises do not include admission and are $25. Museum tickets alone are $20 ($14 for seniors and students, children under 8 NOW FREE) and can be purchased at www.southstreetseaportmuseum.org. The South Street Seaport Museum is located at 12 Fulton Street, NY, NY 10038.

W.O. Decker, the last remaining New-York built wooden tugboat, was built in 1930 by the Newtown Creek Towing Company and originally named Russell I,after the towing company’s owners. She was renamed W.O. Decker in 1946 after being sold to the Decker family’s Staten Island tugboat firm. The tugboat was donated to the Seaport Museum in 1986. Decker is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is an exemplary model of the types of steam tugs that were once an abundant sight in New York Harbor. This unique vessel is a true testament to New York City’s maritime heritage, which is a direct factor in the city’s global prominence today.

ABOUT SOUTH STREET SEAPORT MUSEUM

The South Street Seaport Museum, located in the heart of the historic seaport district in New York City, preserves and interprets the history of New York as a great port city. Founded in 1967, and designated by Congress as America’s National Maritime Museum, the Museum houses an extensive collection of works of art and artifacts, a maritime reference library, exhibition galleries and education spaces, working nineteenth century print shops, and an active fleet of historic vessels that all work to tell the story of “Where New York Begins.”

12:00 – 1:00 pm

This Event is Free and Open to the Public

City Hall Park, NYC

Join the Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York, Inc. as they commemorate martyred spy Nathan Hale at the foot of the Nathan Hale statue which stands at City Hall Park. The ceremony features the SRNY Color Guard, wreath laying, and more.

Nathan Hale was commissioned by George Washington to infiltrate the British ranks to gather intelligence. He was discovered on September 22, 1776 and hanged for treason, without trial, the next morning.

The Nathan Hale Commemoration Ceremony takes place in City Hall Park near the statue of Nathan Hale that was commissioned by the Sons of the Revolution in 1883 and stands facing the south main entrance to City Hall. Click HERE to see the exact location on Google Maps.  To enter the park, you may enter the secure area from either the west or east gate of Steve Flanders Square, which is on the south side of the City Hall building.  Everyone who enters will have to walk through a metal detector and have any bags scanned by an x-ray machine. Look for chairs set up where the commemoration is to take place.

New Museum Presents IdeasCity Bronx – 2019
Sep 21 all-day

New Museum Presents

IdeasCity Bronx

Saturday, September 21

A free public festival at Concrete Plant Park in the Bronx

New York, NY…The New Museum is pleased to announce IdeasCity Bronx, a free public festival taking place the afternoon of Saturday, September 21, 2019, at Concrete Plant Park in the Bronx.

IdeasCity Bronx will feature conversations, artist talks, performances, and activations by an array of cultural agents engaging the physical, social, and economic forces that define the Bronx and other cities. Highlights will include keynote conversations by Teddy Cruz and Fonna Forman and Jon Gray of Ghetto Gastro, and a series of participatory workshops organized by Xaviera Simmons, Torkwase Dyson, Oscar Oliver-Didier, Coco June, Marquita Flowers, and Monxo López and Libertad Guerra of South Bronx Unite. Pop-up activations by Bronx-based art and activist groups and food vendors will operate throughout the afternoon, organized with DreamYard, a nationally recognized community organization that works with Bronx youth, families, and schools to build pathways to equity through the arts.

Themed New Ecologies 3755, this iteration of IdeasCity focuses on the effects of climate change faced by communities in the Bronx, and the inextricable link between the conditions of our planet and the state of culture and society. IdeasCity has invited locally and internationally recognized practitioners to design interactive workshops focused on key areas of inquiry pertaining to the theme of New Ecologies. Workshops are centered on topics ranging from Waterfront De-Industrialization, Divesting from Whiteness, Borders and Migration, Housing Production and Preservation, Public Health and Pleasure, and Food Justice, and highlights include a somatic movement workshop on strategizing Resources for Resistance, storytelling performances combating Food Apartheid through agricultural autonomy, and a livestream conversation on the Architecture of Diaspora between South Bronx activists and allied groups in Santurce, Puerto Rico.

“The number 3755 refers to the 3,755 days between IdeasCity Bronx and the start of 2030, noted internationally as the deadline for irreversible climate crisis. The number also evokes a distant future, over a millennium away, one that we might imagine shaped by the Bronx and by communities that were erased or marginalized in the last millennium,” stated V. Mitch McEwen, Curator of IdeasCity. “Inspired by the urgency around climate change, artists and organizations in the Bronx are working to address structural inequality, real estate development models, and even national politics, topics that will take center stage at IdeasCity Bronx.”

Prior to the festival, IdeasCity will release a podcast produced in collaboration with Gesso, members of NEW INC, the New Museum’s cultural incubator, who have developed a free location-based mobile app for innovative audio content. The podcast is designed to accompany visitors en route to the festival, expanding on the program’s themes with additional information, conversations, and interviews with IdeasCity Bronx speakers and community leaders.

On Friday, September 20, 2019, IdeasCity and the Bronx Museum of the Arts will cohost a workshop for local and emerging practitioners that will consider the inequalities produced and reproduced by urban spatial relationships, and the shifting approaches devised by artists, designers, planners, and architects engaging with public space in the Bronx’s contemporary landscape.

IdeasCity Bronx will be held at Concrete Plant Park, located on the Bronx River between Westchester Avenue and Bruckner Boulevard. Home to a functioning concrete plant from the late 1940s to 1987, Concrete Plant Park’s revitalization began in 2000 under the stewardship of the Parks Department and the Bronx River Alliance. In addition to salt marshes, greenways, a promenade, and boat-launch, Concrete Plant Park is also home to the Bronx Foodway, a pilot project examining how a sustainable food landscape can be integrated into a public park.

IdeasCity Bronx follows IdeasCity New Orleans, which took place in April 2019 and was centered on the theme of “Everyday Festival,” and IdeasCity Toronto, which took place in September 2018 and was centered on the theme of “City of Cities.”

ABOUT IDEASCITY

IdeasCity is a collaborative, civic, and creative platform that starts from the premise that art and culture are essential to the future vitality of cities. This international initiative provides a forum for designers, artists, technologists, and policymakers to exchange ideas, identify challenges, propose solutions, and engage the public’s participation. The initiative was cofounded at the New Museum by Lisa Phillips, Toby Devan Lewis Director, and Karen Wong, Deputy Director. Past IdeasCity programs have taken place in New York (2011, 2013, 2015, and 2017), Istanbul (2012), São Paulo (2013), Detroit (2016), Athens (2016), Arles (2017), Toronto (2018), and New Orleans (2019).

Author Sidney Blumenthal Discusses the Political Life of Abraham Lincoln

Tuesday, September 24, 2019
6:30 – 8:00 pm

The Great Hall of The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art
7 East 7th Street, between Third and Fourth Avenues
New York, NY 10003

(6 to Astor Place/R-W to 8th Street)

MORE: Strand Book Store will sell books at the event and Sidney Blumenthal will sign copies following the discussion.

The event is free and open to the public. General public should reserve a space at http://bit.ly/sblincoln. Please note seating is on a first come basis; an RSVP does not guarantee admission as we generally overbook to ensure a full house.

During this free, open event, Sidney Blumenthal, the acclaimed author of two previous volumes on Abraham Lincoln, recounts Lincoln’s astonishing return from the political desert and ascent to the presidency, including his landmark speech at Cooper Union in February 1860. In the talk, Blumenthal discusses his latest book, All the Powers of Earth: The Political Life of Abraham Lincoln, 1856-1860 (Simon & Schuster) which is the third volume of a projected five-part work.

To fulfill his own burning ambition and become the unlikely savior of the Union, Lincoln had to first build a new national political party, confront the brilliant demagogue Stephen Douglas, and outmaneuver politicians of far greater standing. History is inevitably seen through the lens of the present moment, but Blumenthal’s account of Lincoln’s political life in the years immediately preceding the Civil War sounds remarkably contemporary. With All the Powers of Earth, Sidney Blumenthal carries the story of Lincoln’s political life through the most intense and crucial years yet, offering a penetrating and panoramic portrayal of American politics on the brink of the Civil War, and of the man who miraculously arose to lead the nation during its time of greatest trial.

Sidney Blumenthal is the acclaimed author of A Self-Made Man and Wrestling with His Angel, the first two volumes in his five-volume biography, The Political Life of Abraham Lincoln.  He is the former assistant and senior adviser to President Bill Clinton and senior adviser to Hillary Clinton.  He has been a national staff reporter for The Washington Post and Washington editor and writer for The New Yorker. His books include the bestselling The Clinton Wars, The Rise of the Counter-Establishment, and The Permanent Campaign.

South Street Seaport Museum Expands Schedule for Public Cruises on W.O. Decker @ South Street Seaport Museum
Sep 25 – Sep 29 all-day

South Street Seaport Museum
Expands Schedule for
Public Cruises on W.O. Decker

Wednesdays – Sundays
Through September

The South Street Seaport Museum announces an expanded schedule for the public cruises on Tugboat W.O. Decker. Take a 60-minute ride on New York’s last remaining New-York-built wooden tugboat and see the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and the lower Manhattan skyline as never before. Decker will cruise past Governor’s Island with Battery Park, One World Trade Center and all of the lower Manhattan skyline as a backdrop and head to the Statue of Liberty for stunning harbor views. This May marked the first time Decker was available for public cruises in nearly a decade, now with an expanded schedule: Wed-Friday: 2pm and 7pm. Sat & Sun: 1:30pm, 3pm, 4:30pm and 7pm. Decker Tours are $35 and include admission to the Museum. Cruises can be booked in advance at https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/1011575.

Tickets for a cruise plus Museum Admission are $35 ($29 for seniors and students, $15 for children 10 and up) The 7pm cruises do not include admission and are $25. Museum tickets alone are $20 ($14 for seniors and students, children under 8 NOW FREE) and can be purchased at www.southstreetseaportmuseum.org. The South Street Seaport Museum is located at 12 Fulton Street, NY, NY 10038.

W.O. Decker, the last remaining New-York built wooden tugboat, was built in 1930 by the Newtown Creek Towing Company and originally named Russell I,after the towing company’s owners. She was renamed W.O. Decker in 1946 after being sold to the Decker family’s Staten Island tugboat firm. The tugboat was donated to the Seaport Museum in 1986. Decker is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is an exemplary model of the types of steam tugs that were once an abundant sight in New York Harbor. This unique vessel is a true testament to New York City’s maritime heritage, which is a direct factor in the city’s global prominence today.

ABOUT SOUTH STREET SEAPORT MUSEUM

The South Street Seaport Museum, located in the heart of the historic seaport district in New York City, preserves and interprets the history of New York as a great port city. Founded in 1967, and designated by Congress as America’s National Maritime Museum, the Museum houses an extensive collection of works of art and artifacts, a maritime reference library, exhibition galleries and education spaces, working nineteenth century print shops, and an active fleet of historic vessels that all work to tell the story of “Where New York Begins.”

Audiences will travel alongside astronauts on the Mercury and Gemini missions to discover the techniques and technology that NASA had to invent and perfect before attempting a trip to the Moon. Viewers will then travel 240,000 miles with the Apollo 11 crew and experience the lunar landing from the perspective of Michael Collins, command module pilot, who continued to orbit the Moon as Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin explored its surface. The show will close with a discussion of how the lessons learned from the Space Race will be used to help humans return to the Moon and travel to Mars and beyond.
