Producer: ( New-York Historical Society)
New-York Historical Society
City: New York

Additional Notes:

In the heart of New York City's bustling metropolis, Central Park's 36-acre Ramble is a bird watcher's paradise, where more than 270 species have been spotted in a single year. With New York being located along one of North America's busiest migratory routes, the spring months are an ideal time to spot the city's avian visitors on their trip north.


Journey with wildlife artist and illustrator Alan Messer to some of the most magical places in Central Park's wooded Ramble, discovering along the way both resident and migrating birds. Walks are limited to 35 guests per tour.


During the April walks through Central Park's Ramble, we will search for resident, late winter, and early migrants, including common birds at feeders. Chickadees, nuthatches, woodpeckers, finches, and sparrows may be seen at this time.


Alan Messer is a wildlife artist and illustrator of books, field guides, and periodicals. He is a former president of the Linnaean Society of New York. Mr. Messer's illustrations are included in the exhibition, Focus on Nature XI, on view at The New York Museum, Albany, New York from April 12 through October 31, 2010.

Ranging from grand sculptures, like Karl Illava's 107th Infantry Memorial, to serene green spaces, New York has venerated its heroes with civic and community memorials and tributes to its fighting regiments. This survey of Central Park's memorials will explore how the city has personified the idea of American Victory, and gloried in its own importance from the Civil War era through the World Wars.

Additional Notes:
Naked Girls Reading NYC is the perfect intimate live event: a monthly nude literary salon featuring in-the-buff readings by local burlesque luminaries, professional librarians, authors and other Naked Girls. Past themes have included Banned Books, Science Fiction, and Tween Lit, as well as their annual holiday presentation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Guests to the salon are invited to sip a drink and listen with their eyes wide open as full-frontal literature meets fine art in this intimate theatrical setting.

Naked Girls Reading began in Chicago in March 2009 as the creation of international showgirl Michelle LAmour and Franky Vivid. The idea had rolled around in their heads for a few years in different formats, but with the opening of Studio LAmour in 2008 it materialized as the perfect intimate live event. Naked Girls Reading now has branches across the country and around the world; the New York chapter, produced by Nasty Canasta, was opened in October 2009 to great acclaim (Great literature stripped bare -Entertainment Weekly; It was a remarkable experience. -Tor.com) and was named New York's Best Story Hour by the Village Voice in 2010. www.NakedGirlsReadingNYC.com

Naked Girls Reading has clearly evolved into something more than just titillation. It is titillating, but after the first thrill of the initial disrobing, the pleasure of seeing beautiful women undressed fades besides the sense of intimacy achieved from someone bearing both their body and their soul at the same time. -Tor.com
