Mark the 241st anniversary of the Battle of Brooklyn with a truly revolutionary night. Stroll Green-Wood’s dusk-lit landscape as Revolutionary War reenactors illuminate life at the time of our country’s battle for survival: setting up camp, cooking, socializing, and steeling themselves for the next day’s battle. There will be dance demonstrations, festive music, 18th-century food to sample, and storytelling about battles won and lost amidst the glow of a campfire. The songwriting duo Charming Disaster will provide musical interludes.

The Death Café is inspired by the centuries-old European salon (or café), an informal gathering to discuss philosophical, political or scientific ideas. In 2011, British entrepreneur Jon Underwood brought this concept to discussions of the most universal topic of all: death. Underwood’s intention was to provide an opportunity to “increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their lives.” Today, there are over 4,400 Death Cafes in 26 countries around the world.

The Savior of Modern Art

Saturday, September 9, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
varian-fry-1

With $3,000 hidden on his body and the backing of the Emergency Rescue Committee, Varian Fry flew from New York to Marseilles in August, 1940, to begin one of the least known, but most heroic actions of the twentieth century. Carrying a list of 200 luminaries in the fields of art, science, literature and medicine, Fry began his dangerous rescue of some of the world’s most famous artists who were then trapped in Nazi-occupied France. By the time he returned to New York a little over a year later, Fry had saved 2,000 souls, some famous, some unknown.
