The Dutch roots of the Alice Austen House
From 12 to 16 November, the Alice Austen House on Staten Island (NY) will go back to its Dutch roots:
"Explore the Dutch roots of the Alice Austen House Museum. During these five days, the Austen House will not be about photography or the Victorian Era but rather about the Dutch farmer that laid its foundation in 1690. Call for reservations: 718.816.4506 x 12"
The Alice Austen House is a museum devoted to the work of the photographer Alice Austen (1866-1952). The building that houses the museum was originally built by a Dutch farmer in 1690, but extensively renovated and expanded later.
The Explore the Dutch roots event is part of the 5 Dutch Days 5 Boroughs event that
"celebrates the continuous influence of Dutch arts and culture in New York City -- from the City's enterprising, multicultural origins as a Dutch colony to the pivotal role of contemporary Dutch artists and designers in today's international cultural scene."
