The NYC 19th Century Extravaganza! April 27-29

The NYC 19th Century Extravaganza is a three-day, all-ages expo featuring historically-focused classes, hands-on experiences, and performances highlighting nineteenth-century life in New York City. The festival culminates in a full-day of Victorian-style picnicking, performances, and celebration on the lawn of Brooklyn’s Old Stone House Museum!

Presented by the New York Nineteenth Century Society (nyncs.org), the Extravaganza aims to be an immersive educational experience. A hand-picked group of renowned historians and passionate artists will share their love of nineteenth-century New York, encompassing everything from the culinary arts, fashion, and photography to 19th-century baseball games, STEAMPUNK [my emphasis], and the early origins of our famous transportation system.

All the events are either free or VERY affordably-priced, and are open to the public, either by RSVP or on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please join us in exploring the past of our great metropolis.

For more information visit them at: http://nyncs.wordpres...­ for a full schedule and descriptions of all the events, presentations, lectures, and activities.

Don't forget the NYC 19th Century Extravaganza starts off with a free taste of Victorian cooking and 19th century culinary practices. Check out the schedule for Friday night's "Timeline of Taste" with historic gastronomist Sarah Lohman.

Please sign this petition... it's the ONLY true, 1800's heritage museum left in Manhattan that was kept in it's original form.
(There's no money involved in this.)

Thanks for bringing it to our attention. Several of us are attending the hearing tonight:

Church of Our Lady of Pompeii, 25 Carmine Street, Father Demo Hall. Please attend and speak (up) at the Community Board 2 (CB2) hearing on the proposed 9-story hotel next door. The potential damage to the MHM during demolition of the garage and construction of the new hotel is huge. We need to be assured of a detailed protection plan.
