New Exhibition: The Printed Port
The Printed Port illuminates an industry central to the development of New York City: job printing. Printers were a mammoth force in the 19th-century Port of New York; they produced all manner of printed materials for the businesses flourishing on South Street, including those in the maritime trades. The South Street Seaport Museum’s printing office and stationers, Bowne & Co. was one of hundreds of shops that made up New York’s first neighborhood. The exhibition features original and reproduced artifacts from the South Street Seaport Museum’s collection, including working printing presses. A survey of printed ephemera presents the tools and techniques involved in their production. The Museum’s working collection artifacts are activated daily, as the professional printing staff at Bowne & Co. host live demonstrations and workshops. Entrance to this exhibit is included with Museum admission https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/957100.

NEW: Visit the Cargo Hold of Wavertree
Included in the price of admission, the South Street Seaport Museum now offers a new level of access to Wavertree, a 134-year-old ship built of riveted wrought iron and the iconic centerpiece of the “Street of Ships” at South Street. For the first time, visitors can take a tour into the belly of the ship to view the breathtaking main cargo area as tours are conducted into the massive lower hold space to a viewing platform. Tickets are available at https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/957100.

Maritime Song Sessions Aboard Wavertree
Join us for our final maritime singing session aboard Wavertree from 2pm to 4:30pm, led by members of the New York Packet chantey singers. Free with Museum admission, or $5 for Song Session only with promo code CHANTEY2019. Head to https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pe/10366236 and select a General Admission ticket.

On-Going Exhibition:
Millions: Migrants and Millionaires aboard the Great Liners, 1900-1914,
familiarizes viewers with passenger life aboard ocean liners, the defining differences between travel for wealthy Americans in First Class and future Americans immigrating to the United States in Third Class, and the continuing importance that immigration plays in American history. Millions is one of the first exhibitions to examine, side-by-side, the dichotomy between First Class and Third Class passengers aboard ocean liners in the early 20th century. From 1900 to 1914, nearly 13 million immigrants traveling in Third Class arrived in the United States. During this same period, America’s wealthiest citizens, totaling no more than a hundred thousand passengers each year, traveled to Europe in First Class, spending the equivalent of over $11.5 billion on luxury vacations. Even though First Class and Third Class sailed on the same ships, their journeys were worlds apart. This exhibition features both original and reproduced artifacts from the South Street Seaport Museum’s permanent collection including ocean liner memorabilia and ephemera, ceramics, and luggage trunks from both immigrants and First-Class passengers. The exhibition highlights a few ship models of New York Harbor working vessels that played critical roles in immigration, including a model of the Museum’s lightship Ambrose (LV-87).

About Bowne & Co., New York’s oldest operating business under the same name. Bowne & Co. was established by Robert Bowne in 1775 and grew as a financial printer throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. In 1975, Bowne & Co. Inc. partnered with the Seaport Museum to open a 19th-century-style print shop at 211 Water Street in the South Street Seaport Historic District. Today Bowne and Co. is comprised of a 19th century Printing Office which houses our new exhibition in a workspace where we continue the age-old tradition of job (or small batch) printing alongside our Stationers which serves as a recreation of 19th-century-style print shop selling gifts and fine goods.

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.”

West 24th St between 9th and 10th Avenue

Look below for their official flyer

The 27th Annual London Street Fair is coming up on Saturday, September 22, 2018.  We like to call ourselves “The Best Little Street Fair in Manhattan”.  It is not your usual commercially run fair.

There will be a myriad of vendors: artists selling their own work, dealers of antiques, clothing, jewelry, furniture, clothing, collectibles of all sorts, records/CDs/DVDs, comic books, tchotchkes (big and small), and a children’s face painter from 12 noon-3pm.  Adults are welcome for face painting as well, there is nothing like a grown man with cat whiskers and glitter.

The street fair will start at 10am and run till 5pm, and is on 24th Street between 9th and 10th Avenue.  Don’t forget the date either, Saturday September 21, 2019.  It is a neighborhood gathering, with families and friends spending time together beneath a canopy of trees, as the leaves are starting to change color.  We consider it our way of welcoming the Autumn season.  Those visiting New York from all over the world show up to see the neighborly hospitality that West Chelsea has to offer.

So, don’t think twice or make other plans.  This is the place to be, and all are welcome.  Hope to see you there!

At the Great Hall at The Cooper Union

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.
