  12. Great Yachts of Long Island Lecture

    September 17 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

    Great Yachts of Long Island

    Special Illustrated Lecture at Coe Hall, Planting Fields

    By Dr. Robert B. MacKay

    Sunday, September 17th, 2017

    At the turn of the twentieth century Long Island’s North Shore was the most prized residential area of the United States. This was where captains of industry and financial titans built lavish estates on the bluffs and bays across from the shoreline of New York City where they worked. With Long Island Sound literally in their backyards the Astors, Morgans, Goulds, Roosevelts and Vanderbilts commissioned fast, luxurious yachts which they used for everything from commuting to the city to racing and voyaging. Dr. MacKay’s presentation explores this extraordinary world of fabulous boats, many of which were built on the Island.

    This lecture is offered in conjunction with the exhibition “Sporting Life on Long Island: The Great Estates Era” which will be open before and after the Sunday lecture, and continues daily through October 1st.  Robert B. MacKay, a North Shore sailor who remembers some of the last of the great yachts, received his doctorate in American and New England studies from Boston University in 1980 and has written extensively about Long Island country houses and commuting yachts.

    Lecture 4 pm – Wine and cheese after lecture – FREE ADMISSION

  16. MUSIC AT THE MANSION – 10/13 THE MASTER KEYS

    October 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

    Sponsored by AARP Long Island

    $30 Non – Members / $20 Members

    The Master Keys is a unique jazz and blues band that is stacked with some of the finest young musicians in New York City today. They specialize in the kind of soulful, jazz-inflected rhythm and blues that was popularized by greats like Ray Charles in the 50’s and 60’s, but also play jazz from the 30’s through the 50’s – with a whole lot of swing and verve. After all, one of their goals is to evoke the cool sophistication of jazz with the deep rootsy-ness of the blues. Another is to get everyone moving with them, and maybe even traveling to another time with them – to an era when real musicians, with real instruments, reached and moved people through music that was live, real, and raw.
