Come out and join us for two events that we are co-hosting this December in association with two terrific New York institutions.
TRIVIA NIGHT WITH THE BOWERY BOYS
TENEMENT MUSEUM — DECEMBER 14, 2016
“Hosts of the popular podcast The Bowery Boys: New York City History, Greg Young and Tom Meyers, test your wits with a night of trivia. Admission is $10, and comes with two drink coupons. Teams of no more than six and no smaller than four will compete over five rounds of trivia. If you don’t come with a team, we’ll be happy to add you to one. Doors and the bar open at 6 p.m. If you haven’t arrived by 6:30 p.m. to claim your spot, the Tenement Museum reserves the right to re-sell your ticket to those waiting in a stand-by line. Prizes will be awarded to the first, second, and third place teams. The Bowery Boys’ book, The Bowery Boys: Adventures in Old New York: An Unconventional Exploration of Manhattan’s Historic Neighborhoods, Secret Spots and Colorful Characters will be for sale with a 15% discount. If you have any questions, contact Laura Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org or (646) 518-3032.

400 YEARS OF HISTORY, LIVE FROM NEW YORK!
WITH THE BOWERY BOYS AND THE MUSEUM OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK
THE GREENE SPACE — DECEMBER 15, 2016
“How do you make history accessible, relevant, and exciting for overstimulated New Yorkers today?
Though they employ very different media, one aural, the other visual, The Bowery Boys and the Museum of the City of New York share the common goal of investigating the city’s rich past and making it relevant to today’s audiences. How do you work with older forms of media — a 1923 building, a physical exhibition mounted on four walls, or a radio podcast — to render and interpret key moments of history in digestible and interesting bursts? In our hyper-connected world of instant and ever-present communication, how do you stoke people’s interest in digging into the city’s past?
Join Greg Young and Tom Meyers of the acclaimed local history podcast The Bowery Boys and Dr. Sarah Henry, chief curator and deputy director of the Museum of the City of New York, for a conversation that goes behind the scenes of the making of New York at Its Core, the museum’s new landmark permanent exhibition. Hosted by Andy Lanset, director of archives for New York Public Radio.”
