Exhibition Tour—The Colmar Treasure: A Medieval Jewish Legacy at The Met Cloisters

A cache of jeweled rings, brooches & coins, the precious possessions of a Jewish family of medieval Alsace, was hidden in the 14th century in the wall of a house in Colmar, France. Discovered in 1863 and on view in this exhibition at The Met Cloisters, the Colmar Treasure revives the memory of a once-thriving Jewish community that was scapegoated and put to death when the Plague struck the region with devastating ferocity in 1348–49.

Heather Garden Conifers Tour with Author Leslie Day at Fort Tryon Park

Come tour Fort Tryon’s Heather Garden and the former Billings Estate entrance area and learn about Fort Tryon’s many conifers and evergreens with Leslie Day, author of A Field Guide to New York City. Find out which conifers pre-date the park, and which have been added in recent park restoration projects to add to the year-round beauty and horticultural appeal of the park. These tours are wheelchair-accessible but persons with mobility issues may find the tour route challenging because of the park’s many steep paths.
