Join our next excursion to the very special ALICE AUSTEN HOUSE. Located on Staten Island, it's not only the best view of NYC anywhere (Ships and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge!) it also is the home of famed photographer Alice Austen and her life partner of 50 years Gertrude Tate. The Executive Director of the house museum - Janice (an honorary LGBT historic house nerd) - will pull out rarely seen photo albums, glass negatives and other artifacts to help us understand New York City, Staten Island, and what a "Boston marriage" could have been. The day will include open access to the house, free conversation and treats on the veranda! Janice has chosen a killer Sri Lanken Restaurant for our lunch (extra cost - bring cash!).
$20.00 per person (to cover treats at the house and admission)
