Greenmarket's gateway to the Upper West Side, the Richard Tucker Park Greenmarket, offers locally grown produce just across the street from Lincoln Center. Seasonal vegetables range from fresh staples like corn and greens to delicacies like squash blossoms and fairtytale eggplant. Orchards boast sweet berries, stone fruit, and over 80 varieties of apples. Knowledgeable growers are at the market to explain just how to care for their plants, flowers, and herb pots indoors and out. Impeccable farmstead cheeses, fresh seafood, grass fed beef, duck and duck charcuterie, eggs, artisanal baked goods, and New Yorks' only producer of both sorghum and maple syrup round out the offerings. Open Saturdays year-round. This location is also open on Thursdays. GrowNYC's Food Scrap Composting: 8:00am - 1:00pm.

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.

An immersive exhibition of more than 100 works of stained glass, compositions in lead, and related drawings will showcase British artist Brian Clarke as one of the most important artists working in stained glass, at once a leader in new technology and a brilliant aesthetic innovator. Since the early 1970s, Clarke has collaborated with some of the world’s most prominent architects to create stained-glass designs and installations for hundreds of projects worldwide.

Animated by changing light and stained with exuberant, saturated colors, these dramatic works will transport audiences to the very frontier of what is possible in stained glass today.

Hispanic Society Museum & Library

The Hispanic Society Museum & Library is pleased to present this outdoor installation of photographic reproductions of works found its unparalleled collections. This remarkable institution reflects the vision of its founder Archer Milton Huntington who had the unique insight to create a museum that focused on all aspects of the cultures of Spain and Latin America. Archer Huntington’s fascination with the subject started at the age of twelve; by fourteen he had begun to study the Spanish language; and by nineteen he had revealed his aspiration to found a “Spanish Museum.” He traveled extensively developing friendships with intellectuals and collectors as he became an exemplary scholar of the subject. As a result, it is not surprising that his institution boasts an outstanding collection. The exhibition on the terrace highlights some of its treasures in painting, ranging from Spanish Old Masters such as El Greco, Velázquez, and Goya to twentieth-century figures like Sorolla and masterpieces from Latin America by Arrieta, Campeche and Rodríguez Juárez, which attest to the visual splendors of those countries. But these masterpieces comprise only a part of the Hispanic Society’s rich holdings which also include major examples of sculpture and decorative arts while the library offers unrivaled resources for researchers interested in the history and culture of Spain, Portugal, and the Americas. Finally, the prints and photographs feature masterpieces by distinguished artists as well as offering an invaluable repository of images of a way of life now vanished. Since its opening, the Hispanic Society has been committed to making the culture of the Hispanic world available to New Yorkers. As such, it reflects the pioneering vision of Huntington who not only championed this endeavor but wanted the entire plaza to become a cultural center open to all. In that spirit, while the Hispanic Society today renovates its buildings, we welcome our neighbors to programs that we hope will inspire everyone during these challenging times.
