For over 20 years, Bastille Day on 60th Street, presented by the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), has been New York’s largest public celebration of France’s national holiday and its historic friendship with the United States. The day commemorates the storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789 and the birth of the modern French nation.

Abounding with French cuisine, musique, dance, and myriad attractions for the whole family, this three-block fête populaire invites New Yorkers to revel in the flavors, sounds, and joie de vivre of France!””

Keep in mind that yours truly, New Yorkled, has been to this festival twice long ago. Gotta mention how crowded it was. I mean, wall to wall or rather building to building people. Took maybe fifteen minutes to get from one corner to another. BUT, what a blast it was! I totally enjoyed the energy! You just might as well.

Intrepid Presents: Upright Citizens Brigade Touring Company

Join for an evening of wonder and hilarity with a celebrated New York improv troupe. In 1961, President John F. Kennedy announced the audacious goal of landing an American on the Moon before the end of the decade. How was this going to be accomplished? We will explore this challenge with the improv group (and guest celeb) as well as former NASA astronaut Mike Massimino and NASA’s Noah Petro, deputy project scientist for the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. This is an after-hours program for adults 21+. Beer and wine will be available for purchase with ID.

 

Giant Leaps Planetarium Show

A planetarium show that will enable visitors to journey through the small steps that resulted in humanity’s giant leap to the Moon. 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.

Students will imagine the challenge of creating technology that operates in the vacuum of space and discuss the engineering behind the space shuttle orbiter Enterprise and its robotic arm. Students will then construct their own “robotic arms” to capture and move objects.

Intrepid Presents: Upright Citizens Brigade Touring Company

Join for an evening of wonder and hilarity with a celebrated New York improv troupe. In 1961, President John F. Kennedy announced the audacious goal of landing an American on the Moon before the end of the decade. How was this going to be accomplished? We will explore this challenge with the improv group (and guest celeb) as well as former NASA astronaut Mike Massimino and NASA’s Noah Petro, deputy project scientist for the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. This is an after-hours program for adults 21+. Beer and wine will be available for purchase with ID.

 

Giant Leaps Planetarium Show

A planetarium show that will enable visitors to journey through the small steps that resulted in humanity’s giant leap to the Moon. 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.

Students in grades 7­–12 will delve deeper into the history of the Space Race and the competition between the United States and the former Soviet Union. Students will imagine the challenge of creating technology that operates in the vacuum of space and discuss the engineering behind the space shuttle orbiter Enterprise and its robotic arm. Students will then construct their own “robotic arms” to capture and move objects.

A regularly scheduled short educator talk One Giant Leap: The 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11 will run for the length of the Apollo 11: Media, the Moon and Beyond installation.

MASSIMO FERRAGAMO NAMED GRAND MARSHAL

OF 2019 NEW YORK CITY COLUMBUS DAY PARADE

Chairman of Ferragamo USA to Lead the 75th Annual Columbus Day Parade Up Fifth Avenue on October 14, 2019

NEW YORK – June 20, 2019 – The Columbus Citizens Foundation announced today that Massimo Ferragamo, the Chairman of Ferragamo USA, has been named Grand Marshal of the 75th annual Columbus Day Parade. Mr. Ferragamo is a proud Italian, who divides his time between Italy and the USA, and is deeply involved in the Ferragamo business started by his father in California in the 1920’s.

The annual Columbus Day parade, the largest celebration of Italian-American heritage and culture in the United States, will take place on Monday, October 14, 2019, beginning at 11:30 a.m. As Grand Marshal, Mr. Ferragamo will lead dozens of marching bands and floats and over 100 marching groups up the Fifth Avenue parade route, from 44th Street to 72nd Street.

In naming Mr. Ferragamo Grand Marshal, Columbus Citizens Foundation President Marian Pardo praised his success as a prominent Italian business leader and referenced his contributions to philanthropy and community service.

“Massimo’s role as the vanguard of a classic Italian brand makes him the perfect choice to serve as Grand Marshal for our 75th Anniversary of the Columbus Day Parade,” Ms. Pardo said. “And his individual accomplishments in wine-making and the creation of one of the most luxurious getaways in Italy; Castiglion del Bosco, are exceptional. His status as an Italian with roots in both Italy and the USA are perfectly themed to have him lead our Parade as we celebrate our Diamond Anniversary.”

“I am honored and pleased to join the ranks of distinguished Italians and Italian-Americans who have served in this incredibly special role before me,” Mr. Ferragamo said, “The special relationship between Italy and the United States has been at the core of the Ferragamo business since its inception, and I’m so very proud to accept this honor also in memory of my parents Salvatore and Wanda who loved the USA as if it were their second home country.  It is wonderful to be able to celebrate all the creativity and blessings that come with our two great countries working together. My family and I are so excited to march up Fifth Avenue on Columbus Day.”

In addition to the ongoing development of one of the world’s most iconic luxury fashion labels,  Mr. Ferragamo purchased the property Castiglion del Bosco in 2003. “CdB” is one of the 25 wineries who founded the Brunello di Montalcino denomination, and has been producing wine from the early 1900’s. Mr. Ferragamo, together with his wife Chiara, developed Castiglion del Bosco into a 5 star plus luxury resort currently managed by the Rosewood Hotels & Resorts Group.

The tradition of a Columbus Day Parade began when Generoso Pope led a group of Italian Americans from East Harlem to Columbus Circle in 1929. The parade was formalized as an official celebration of Columbus and Italian heritage in 1994, and this year’s event marks its 75th Anniversary.

Past Grand Marshals of New York’s Columbus Day Parade have included: Sophia Loren; Frank Sinatra; Luciano Pavarotti; Lidia Bastianich; Joe DiMaggio; Mario Andretti; Roberto Cavalli and Maria Bartiromo.
