THIS SAT SEPT 10TH!
3PM & 6:30PM returns to



A thrillingly unique ensemble meets an equally thrilling and unique venue. Enter the splendor of The Widow Jane Mine with Dzieci Theatre, where their riotous clan from the "Old Country" will greet you with song, dance, and divination, then lead you between the gargantuan stone pillars and around the subterranean pools,in a riotous whirlwind of spine-tingling theatrical invention. With feats of astonishing physicality and otherworldly choral chanting, Dzieci’s Makbet (their boldly visceral take on Macbeth), comes alive through the unflinching performance of a handful of actors who take turns spontaneously trading off parts at the drop of a hat, exploding the art of storytelling, and creating a one-of-a-kind experience which audiences have said is, "Absolutely liberating!"

I tripped over this wonderful link from another feed. Love FB for this ! I have never seen this pier without cables, nor lower Manhattan of this time. The D&H Canal, Rosendale Cement, the Roeblings-all had some much going on in a short few decades.

Great piece on British canals. They discuss lime, mortar, and kilns at ~4:00. Enjoy!

The Century House HIstorical Society now has Tree Ornaments available in the Company Store along with a lot of other great items.
