New York City’s Paradise Lost
There’s nothing more interesting for us at City Lore than bridging a cultural time gap to see the dual realities of a culture from a fresh perspective. Relinquish yourself to the exquisite past and conflicting present that coalesce at the Andrew Freedman Home in the exhibit, This Side of Paradise. No Longer Empty, a fellow public-service arts organization, champions the unique vision of Andrew Freedman’s home in the Bronx, which from 1924 to 1984 was a home, believe it or not, for rich people who had lost all their wealth. This unique art installation in the Home will show us the grandiose vision of an idealistic man who opened his heart, and his wallet, to care for those who had fallen from paradise. On opening night, make sure to stay after for the Speakeasy After Party and Fundraiser sponsored by St. Germain and featuring the dance band, Bobby Sanabria and Ascension, starting at 8:30pm. Support No Longer Empty and future exhibitions by purchasing tickets here.
