Join us for an info session on doing the college search from home provided by The Princeton Review!

Finding Your Best Fit College (By Necessity) From the Comfort of Home!: Rising High School Seniors and Juniors have always faced difficult life changing decisions in making their post-graduation plans. Now, the decisions are more difficult than ever as families and students face the prospect of making this major step without the help of college fairs, school visits, or easy access to in-person meetings with college representatives. This information session will give students families tools and ideas about how to conduct the college search and feel confident throughout the application process.

Advanced registration is required. You will need an email address, a device with audio and/or video and an internet connection to join.

Geraldo Cadava: Hamilton’s America / Online Class

92Y@Home

Before there was an award-sweeping, record-smashing Broadway mega-hit, there was a book. Before there was a book, there was the history. And before the history, there was the man.

Why did Alexander Hamilton's story  captured in Ron Chernow’s biography — captivate Lin-Manuel Miranda? Why has his story captivated the millions who made the show the hottest ticket on Broadway ... ever? How did hip hop make history irresistible? What about Hamilton's America is relevant to our America right now? Or is there little that isn't?
 
Northwestern University associate professor of American and Latin American history Geraldo Cadava is a passionate scholar of both Hamilton's story and the musical it sparked. Join him for this unique five-session class mashing history into pop culture and back again.

Hope Wanted takes place outdoors in New-York Historical’s rear courtyard (entrance by 5 West 76th Street between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue), providing an open-air environment for visitors to view the exhibition and contemplate the impact of COVID-19 on New York City. Admission is free; access is limited and face coverings are required for entry, with social distancing enforced through timed-entry tickets and on-site safety measures. Curated by poet and journalist Kevin Powell and photographer Kay Hickman, Hope Wanted: New York City Under Quarantine features more than 50 photographs taken by Hickman along with 14 audio interviews with the photographs’ subjects conducted by Powell during the team’s intensive two-day odyssey across the city on April 8–9, 2020; the audio will be accessible to visitors through their cell phones. Hickman’s empathetic photographs of people and their neighborhoods in all five boroughs and Powell’s searching interviews of New Yorkers impacted by the crisis capture both tragedy and remarkable resilience at a moment in time during the pandemic. The exhibition text and audio will be offered in both English and Spanish. The exhibition also includes a quiet seating area, surrounded by plantings and conducive to reflection, where visitors can record their own experiences of the pandemic in an open-sided story booth. These oral histories will be archived by New-York Historical. Check out recent coverage of the exhibition in the New York Times and on NY1.
