Forever Changed: Carrying the Pain of 9/11
SI Scenery Preview
Staten Island Scenery is a new large format book published by Historic Richmond Town in collaboration with the Staten Island Museum. This work is a definitive look at the borough of parks and how its beauty has helped define New York City. The documentary that accompanies the publication is a behind-the-scenes look at how a selection of images were created, preserved and presented in the book. Narrated by Historic Richmond Town's Director Emeritus and author of Staten Island Scenery, Barnett Shepherd, the film is an enjoyable half hour excursion into the woods, fields and hills of Richmond. The clip shown here is a short preview of the full film.
Through Kids' Eyes
Through Kids' Eyes is a new pilot program at Historic Richmond Town that immerses middle schoolers into history. We worked with Lavelle Prep 7th graders and their teachers to run the first program. This short video shows how we did it. The program has expanded to phase two in 2014.
Tourist in Your Own Town
This wonderful video was not produced by Historic Richmond Town but by our good friends at the Landmarks Conservancy. The Conservancy, chaired by Peg Breen, does amazing work on behalf of landmarked historic buildings. This video is one of a number the Conservancy has made available on the web. We recommend the entire series.
Peek at Tavern Concerts
This is a little peek at one of our Tavern Concerts. The Tavern is a building lit by candlelight, without running water or electricity. It's heated by a single wood stove. But the room is warm with music that is enveloped in amazing aged acoustics. There is no venue quite like it in NYC. Check out the video.
