www.merchantshouse.org Built in 1832, the Merchant's House Museum is New York City's only 19th century home preserved intact, with original family furnishings and personal belongings. A unique survivor of Old New York, the House offers a rare and intimate glimpse of how a prosperous merchant family and their four Irish servants lived from 1835 to 1865, when New York grew from seaport to thriving metropolis. "The distinction of the Merchant's House -- and it is a powerful one -- is that it is the real thing. One simply walks through the beautiful doorway into another time and place in New York." The New York Times

We strive to give reason to emotion and understanding to our impulses. This is not a place for the expected: we are a kunsthalle, a cabinet of curiosities, a collection of the rare, repulsive, delicious, old, new, high, low, good and bad that serves as a barometer of contemporary culture. We encourage the simultaneous occupation of the city, the marketplace and the mind by presenting work that mines the fringes of society and exposes our unique behaviors through the lens of the most fundamental human activity: sex. This is more than a museum: We are an institution that believes in embracing society and existing beyond its walls. We promote organic growth and foster an entrepreneurial spirit that values original ideas. To do this, we seek the engagement and collaboration of fearless visionaries from all industries who challenge, stimulate and disrupt the status quo. Together we develop innovative events, exhibits, products and experiences that bring the best of current scholarship on sex and sexuality to the widest possible audiences.

The Eldridge Street Synagogue, built in 1887, is a National Historic Landmark synagogue in Manhattan's Chinatown neighborhood.HistoryThe Eldridge Street Synagogue is one of the first synagogues erected in the United States by Eastern European Jews (Ashkenazis). One of the founders was Rabbi Eliahu the Blessed (Borok), formerly the Head Rabbi of St. Petersburg, Russia. It opened at 12 Eldridge Street in New York's Lower East Side in 1887 serving Congregation Kahal Adath Jeshurun. The building was designed by the architects Peter and Francis William Herter, (but unrelated to the Herter Brothers cabinet-makers). The brothers subsequently received many commissions in the Lower East Side and incorporated elements from the synagogue, such as the stars of David, in their buildings, mainly tenements. When completed, the synagogue was reviewed in the local press. Writers marveled at the imposing Moorish Revival building, with its 70-foot-high vaulted ceiling, magnificent stained-glass rose windows, elaborate brass fixtures and hand-stenciled walls.Thousands participated in religious services in the building's heyday, from its opening through the 1920s. On High Holidays, police were stationed in the street to control the crowds. Rabbis of the congregation included the famed Rabbi Abraham Aharon Yudelovich, author of many works of Torah scholarship. Throughout these decades the Synagogue functioned not only as a house of worship but as an agency for acculturation, a place to welcome new Americans. Before the settlement houses were established and long afterward, poor people could come to be fed, secure a loan, learn about job and housing opportunities, and make arrangements to care for the sick and the dying. The Synagogue was, in this sense, a mutual aid society.

STUDIO D'ARTE GR Established almost 40 years ago in the late 1970s, Studio d’Arte GR quickly focused its activity on the promotion and valorization of postwar avante-garde artwork of clear Latin matrix, favoring those artists who had created a special, personal propulsion and thrust during the triumph and eclipse of “Informale”. In the 1980s, Studio d’Arte GR became intent upon relaunching certain aspects of Abstractionism of the 1950s and 1960s which in Europe and especially Italy had been compared to American Abstract Expressionism, interesting itself in the works of artists such as Afro, Alberto Burri, Giuseppe Santomaso and Emilio Vedova. Studio d’Arte GR then promoted and underscored the season of Spatialism – the real conclusion of the trajectory of “Informale” – with the diffusion of masters of relevance like Edmondo Bacci, Marco De Luigi, Lucio Fontana, Riccardo Licata and Tancredi. In the 1990s, Studio d’Arte began dedicating great energy and insight to the rediscovery and relaunching of the last true avante-garde movements of Kinetic, Programmed, and Optical art, establishing direct, often exclusive relationships and dealings with artists such as Getulio Alviani, Alberto Biasi, Gianni Colombo, Carlos Cruz Diez, Julio Le Parc, Francois Morrelet, Horacio Garcia Rossi, Francisco Sobrino and Victor Vasarely. Often carried forward in profound solitude, at most with a small number of faithful friends, this project was ahead of its time in advancing artists who had been almost completely forgotten but whose work has since been enthusiastically recognized by both critics and the market in the new millenium. All this was possible thanks to the ongoing collaboration of Professor Giovanni Granzotto, a founding partner of the Studio and more importantly, one of the most expert and passionate supporters of postwar Latin art. Today, Studio d’Arte GR alternates its activity with the discovery and promotion of young talent that challenges itself with the most varied of media, maintaining a dynamic attitude towards chromatic vibration and luministic inquiry. In addition to its business activity, Studio d’Arte GR has always engaged in dynamic, purely cultural endeavors at regular intervals, organizing exhibitions and artistic reviews in prestigious museums such as GNAM in Rome, the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, MMOMA in Moscow, MACBA and Museo di Bellas Artes in Buenos Aires, and Palazzo Ducale in Venice. The staff of Studio d’Arte GR pride themselves on having organized and curated almost 300 public exhibitions. With this premise, New York GR Gallery has recently been born, a structure completely centered on the culture and market of the United States. Formed by a mix of both young and expert personalities, New York GR Gallery is dedicated to distinguishing those movements and artists that the art world has finally acknowledged and now celebrates, but is also committed to promoting innovative talent and worth. Studio d’Arte GR has already demonstrated special expertise and intuitive flair for this in the last few decades, thus allowing us to foresee a great future in the world of contemporary art.

After its founding in 1974 by Gerardus Widdershoven, Maison Gerard quickly established a reputation as New York’s premier source for fine French Art Deco furniture, lighting and objets d’art. In addition to presenting important works of Jules Bouy, Jean-Michel Frank, Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann, Jules Leleu, and Jacques Adnet, the gallery helped assemble numerous private and public collections, notably, the collection of Walter Chrysler Jr. (now housed in the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, VA), and the Design Collection of the Utsonomia Museum in Japan. In the late ‘90s, twentieth century decorative arts specialist Benoist F. Drut joined Maison Gerard as a partner. An innovator from the start, Benoist began broadening the gallery’s scope to include both Midcentury and contemporary design, cultivating a wide range of recognized and emerging artists alike—artists such as Hervé van der Straeten, Jean Girel, Marc Bankowsky, Matthew Solomon, and Miguel Cisterna—and collecting a body of work as well-grounded in the past as it was keenly attuned to the future. Today, Maison Gerard exhibits a range of work from French Art Deco and antiques to contemporary lighting and ceramics with an emphasis on authenticity, historical context, and expertise. The gallery occupies two storefronts on 10th Street. At 43 E 10th St. you will find exhibitions of work on the cutting edge of contemporary design. The space has hosted a series of compelling exhibitions that focus on artists and designers including Eric Astoul, Franck Chartrain, Carol Egan, William T. Georgis, Kiko Lopez, Achille Salvagni, and Ayala Serfaty. At 53 E 10th St. you will find newly discovered artists and Art Deco titans nestled together comfortably—their work in a cohabitation so natural it’s difficult to imagine their distinct origins. Benoist carefully curates these spaces with works which are at once aesthetically and historically relevant, and, above all, incredibly welcoming.
