The Institute is free, and a light breakfast and lunch will be provided for all participants.

    EXHIBITION

    On view in the main gallery is A Bridge to Bayside, A Corridor through Community: Construction of the Throgs Neck Bridge and Clearview Expressway. This exhibition examines two Robert Moses inter-related projects that had a profound impact on Bayside and the surrounding communities. The bridge, and more so, the expressway, physically and emotionally redefined how we think about sense of place: our home, our neighborhood, our interactions with others, and how we go from "here" to "there" on a daily basis.


    About the Bayside Historical Society (BHS):

    BHS is located in the Castle within Fort Totten Park. Built in 1887, the building was originally used by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as their Officers' Club. The Gothic Revival style Castle is a NYC designated landmark, and is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places. BHS at the Castle serves as a learning destination, a resource for researchers and the community, and a venue for the visual and performing arts. Each year it offers exhibits, education programs for schools, public programs including lectures, workshops, classes; and access to an archival collection of more than 10,000 items documenting the development of this locale over the past 300 years.

    HOURS:

    Ongoing

    Saturday (10/11) and Sunday (10/5) 12pm-4pm

    “Strong Minds, Generous Hearts, and Powerful Arms”: A History of the Foundations of the Archdiocese of New York

                                                                                         

    Since it was established over 200 years ago, the Archdiocese of New York has been a major force in both New York City and the larger world. From its origins in St. Peter’s Church, Barclay Street, to the over 400 parishes that exist today, generations of New York Catholics have truly, as Archbishop John Hughes said at the laying of the cornerstone of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, put their “strong minds, generous hearts, and powerful arms” to work building what to this day remains a foundation of the everyday lives of millions of people. While many are familiar with the major dates and players of the Archdiocese’s history, this exhibit, while not overlooking those important features, also draws attention to lesser-known people, events, and places, with particular attention on the charitable works overseen by the Archdiocese and the various religious groups operating within it.

    Exhibition runs beyond New York Archives Week through January 2015.

    LOCATION:

    St. Joseph's Seminary

    201 Seminary Avenue                                           Yonkers, NY 10707

    FREE! RSVP REQUIRED.

    Registration Info:

    The exhibit is by appointment only. To schedule an appointment to visit the exhibition please contact the Archives of the Archdiocese of New York at archives@archny.org or (914) 968-6200 x. 8365.

    A presentation by William A. Casari, Hostos Community College Library Archivist & Librarian

    Hostos Community College was founded in 1968, a turbulent time for the South Bronx. In the fall of 1970 classes began in a renovated tire factory on the Grand Concourse. This presentation will highlight the history of Hostos Community College and analyze the impact it has had on the surrounding community. Eugenio Maria de Hostos, the college’s namesake, was a Puerto Rican educator, writer and fighter for social justice who traveled widely and visited New York City. Biographical information will bring his story to life and illustrate why his teachings are still relevant today as we celebrate the 175th anniversary of his birth and his lasting legacy in New York City.
