Jack Kerouac penned The Subterraneans and Tristessa at The Marlton.
 
Even Jack Kerouac wearied of the road sometimes. “As far as I’m concerned the only thing to do is sit in a room and get drunk,” he once advised. Now literary-minded travelers can inhabit one of the rooms where he did precisely that: the historic Marlton Hotel—built in 1900—reopened after an extensive renovation masterminded by Sean MacPherson, co-owner of New York City’s Bowery Hotel, Jane hotel, and a bevy of other Zeitgeist-defining properties on both coasts.

Tchekhov Forever | Le Cocktail Français | National Arts Club

 

The Cocktail Français is very pleased to welcome back Sylvain Beltran-Lamy, author, actor and director of his latest play, « Tchekhov Forever ».   The play will be presented in French.

The play takes place in January 1904, when the audience saw Anton Chekhov for the last time.  With laughter and tears, the audience admired an extraordinary theatrical personality, as well as the medical doctor that he was.  The play opens the curtain on the inner life of one of the most important Russian playwright.

No reservations required.

Visit and Apéro | 170 Central Park West (at 77th St)
 
 
Self-taught and ahead of her time, Anne Marguérite Joséphine Henriette Rouillé de Marigny, Baroness Hyde de Neuville (1771–1849) was the first woman artist in America to leave a substantial body of work.
 
Granted exile by Napoleon, she first made her mark in New York City and later Washington, D.C., and her art celebrates the people and scenes of the early American republic, documenting the young country’s history, culture, and diverse population. Neuville’s status as a woman and an outsider made her an astute observer of people from varied backgrounds, and her work documents such significant figures as one of the first visitors to America from China and the earliest accurate portrayals of Indigenous Americans.
 
The first serious consideration of her life and art, this exhibition showcases 114 watercolors and drawings by Neuville, including many that were recently discovered.
