2 Gooden & Dykstra headline Expo at Civic Center this Saturday The ’86 Mets may be one of baseball’s starkest lovethem-or-hatethem propositions. Hatred for them is the one thing in the world that unites Yankees and Red Sox fans. To the Mets faithful, the believers, they are a vivid memory of the pride and second-tono one attitude that are, theoretically, possible for New York’s second team. Their personalities – Strawberry, Carter, Hernandez, Backman and more – were cocky and arrogant. They had to be, to do what they did. Two utterly critical players on that team, the great ace Dwight “Doc” Gooden and Lenny “Nails” Dykstra, headline the first annual BG Sports & Memorabilia Expo at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center this Saturday, May 19 from 2 to 7 p.m. Highlights include memorabilia blowout sales, autograph-signing, sports challenges, food vendors, silent auctions

MUSIC Jules Taylor show this Saturday in Saugerties

On his third record, Mountain Time, the Woodstock-area songwriter/producer Jules Taylor quickly announces the turf: a kind of high-drama ambient American rock with equal parts grit and ether. Its affinities are many: Wilco, Calexico, Ryan Adams, Driveby Truckers, Neil Young‌do I need to continue? What the references don’t necessarily suggest is how nicely crafted and layered these relatively crunchy, hard-rocking tracks are: dark, shimmering, electric desert snarl; good stuff, well-played and even-better-conceived. It is not hard to imagine any of these songs showing up in a stylized modern Western. Jules Taylor and his band celebrate the release of Mountain Time with a show on Saturday, May 19 at the Love Bites CafÊ, located at 69 Partition Street in Saugerties. Joining Taylor on this stacked bill are the Mead Mountain Resonators and John Holt’s long-running songwriting project Hallow Dog. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $13.50. For more information, visit www.projules.com. – John Burdick

Woodstock’s Colony presents Arlen Roth this Friday Longtime poster child for the Fender Telecaster and a roots virtuoso with tremendous range and stylistic fluency, the great Arlen Roth has also been a fixture at the regional clubs in the last couple of years. Roth has played with Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, John Prine, Phoebe Snow, Levon Helm, Ry Cooder, John Sebastian, Janis Ian, Eric Andersen and the Bee Gees, to name a few, and was famously the guitar coordinator in the popular movie Crossroads. The man can play. Arlen Roth visits Colony in Woodstock

ew Folk trailblazers, massive hitmakers and ardent social activists, the Indigo Girls are synonymous with the lighter side of ’90s music – which is to say pretty darn dark themselves, but leavened with a fine sense of close harmony and with songs that sport at least glimmers of hope and redemption. They have remained productive in the studio and are a failsafe concert attraction. On Saturday, May 19, Bardavon presents the duo of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers at the Ulster Performing Arts Center in Kingston (UPAC). Ticket prices for this Indigo Girls concert range from $48 to $62 ($5 off and preferred seating for members). Tickets may be purchased at the Bardavon box office at 35 Market Street in Poughkeepsie, (845) 473-2072; the UPAC box office at 601 Broadway in Kingston, (845) 339-6088; and online at www.bardavon.org. – John Burdick

Nick Hallett’s opera To Music this Saturday at Mount Tremper Arts Mount Tremper Arts has become known for bringing experimental, edgy and contemporary art to a virtually unpopulated swath of land in the Catskills. Strange, but we’ll take it. The 11th season opens with To Music, a new opera by experimental composer Nick Hallett in collaboration with filmmaker Josh Thorson. This darkly comic opera looks at the nature of inspiration, originality and illusion to attempt to answer the question: Where does music come from? It draws from pure vocalese, glossolalia, poetry and profanity weaving through German lieder, mobile-phone ringtones, Modernist dissonance and Top 40 radio. To Music (Scene 3) will be performed at 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 19 at Mount Tremper Arts.

Kingston at the Senate Garage, right in the heart of the Uptown action. Jazzstock was dealt a sucky hand when some kind of inscrutable, arcane state law regarding liquor and dangerous music stipulated that they cannot sell tickets at the door at this otherwise-ideal venue. You’d think someone could do something about that. But Jazzstock, which has many other venues at its disposal, has stuck with Uptown and is making it work. Get your tickets in advance. On Thursday, May 24, Jazzstock welcomes trumpet/flugelhorn legend Warren Vache and the John Di Martino Trio to the Senate Garage at 7:30 p.m. Vache’s “played with” credits aren’t so shabby. Any list that begins with Benny Goodman…and goes on to include Rosemary Clooney, Benny Carter, Hank Jones, Gerry Mulligan and Woody Herman tells you something about the man’s history. John Di Martino is a consummate jazz pianist, arranger, composer and producer: the model of the modern working jazz musician, serious and versatile. His own trio dates as leader, including 2012’s bluesy, lucid

and sophisticated Turnaround, speak to a musical identity you might call traditional – which, in jazz, implies profound mastery. Remember the unfortunate ticket deal. I wish you could stumble upon this show, drawn in by the smoky jazz without the smoke, but you can’t. You have to plan. Tickets cost $25. They are available next door at Rhino Records, online at www. jazzstock.com or by calling (845) 8020029. Wine is available at the event, as well as sandwiches, courtesy of Bread Alone.

STAGE Failure of the will Leni opens this Thursday at Catskill’s Bridge Street Theatre

T

o what extent are we responsible for decisions we make as younger people without the knowledge of hindsight? And to what extent does the world have the right to pass judgment on us for those decisions? These are questions addressed by Sarah Greenman’s play Leni, which examines the moral and aesthetic complexities inherent in history’s evaluation of the career of Leni Riefenstahl, “Hitler’s chosen filmmaker.” Riefenstahl is widely acknowledged as a giant of documentary cinema, but she allowed her talent to be put to use by the Nazi propaganda machine. In the postwar era, she tried very hard to rewrite what her role had been, spinning her work as cinema vérité. Susan Sontag was one of many film critics who derided her attempts at revisionism as “nonsense,” but also had to admit that “Triumph of the Will and Olympiad are undoubtedly superb films (they may be the two greatest documentaries ever made).” Leni depicts the filmmaker late in life, trying to come to terms with her own inner conflict. In a limbo resembling a semi-abandoned soundstage, Helene (the aged Riefenstahl) hovers in a dream somewhere between life and death. There, she encounters Leni (her youthful self ) and is forced to confront the moral implications of the works she created and the ways in which those works helped to empower a fascist regime. Was she complicit or merely an artist attempting to create the finest films of which she was capable, blinding herself to their implications and to the evils of the party that engineered their creation? Together, the two Lenis (who are really one) attempt to create one final film that will justify both their work and their life. A searing examination of narcissism, denial and artistic responsibility, Leni stars Olivia Howell as Leni and Roxanne Fay as Helene; John Sowle directs this Bridge Street Theatre production. The show opens on Thursday, May 17 and runs through May 27. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with Sunday matinées at 2 p.m. Bridge Street Theatre dramaturg Steven Patterson will be presenting a preshow talk before each performance to put Riefenstahl’s life in context; come half an hour early for the presentation. Admission is free with your ticket. Tickets cost $22 general admission, $10 for students. To purchase, call (518) 943-3818 or visit https://leni.brownpapertickets.com.

thousand different accents from all over the world. But if we had to distill its voice down to a single one, that would undoubtedly be Runyonese: the politely profane dialect assigned to the streetwise characters in the glitzy/shady world of the Manhattan demimonde of the 1920s and ’30s in the short stories of Damon Runyon. The sound, the diction, the mode of expression impressed themselves indelibly on the public consciousness of his time and never truly faded. If someone acting in a film or TV show made outside the US wants to put on a “New York accent” (as if there were only one), the odds are great that its sound originated in Runyon’s renditions. Even if you’ve never read a Damon Runyon story, you know their flavor well. They were made into many a radio show and movie (including Little Miss Marker, The Lemon Drop Kid, Pocketful of Miracles, A Slight Case of Murder

and The Big Street) and their characters replicated in Looney Tunes fare that became Saturday-morning staples in the early days of TV. Most purely and enduringly of all, they were captured in

the Frank Loesser stage musical Guys and Dolls, whose book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows merged the plots of two Runyon stories: “The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown” and “Blood Pressure.”


8 When Guys and Dolls first opened on Broadway in 1950, it charmed the crowds and the critics, snagged five Tonys and was supposed to get the 1951 Pulitzer for Best Drama (though the latter was quashed due to Burrows being blacklisted). It went on to become a perennial classic, and for good reason. All these decades later, the dialogue remains as fresh and funny and snappy as ever, the songs as sprightly and singable: “Fugue for Tinhorns,” “A Bushel and a Peck,” “Adelaide’s Lament,” “If I Were a Bell,” “Luck Be a Lady,” “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” the title tune – you know them, even if you don’t realize that you do. Due for a revisit? Need to hang out for a couple of hours with some goodhearted gamblers, brassy showgirls and naïve street missionaries? Come see the County Players’ new production of Guys and Dolls, currently running at the Falls Theatre in Wappingers Falls. And if you know any “theater kids” who think that musicals started with Andrew Lloyd Webber, bring them along. The director is the estimable Christine Crawfis; it stars Brian Apfel as Sky Masterson, Amy Schaffer as Sarah Brown, Rick Meyer as Nathan Detroit and Michele George as Miss Adelaide. The show runs for one more weekend, with performances beginning at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, May 18 and 19 and a 2 p.m. Sunday matinée on the 19th. Tickets cost $25 general admission, $20 for seniors (60+), military and children under age 12. To purchase, call (845) 2981491 or visit https://bit.ly/2wv2rE7.

REQUIEM FOR ANNA POLITKOVSKAYA, WITH PUPPETRY, THIS WEEKEND AT FISHER CENTER

W

hen journalists die in action, it typically happens when they’re embedded in a military unit or otherwise covering the frontlines of a war zone. A few find that the most dangerous place to be is their own country. When Ukrainian writer/activist Anna Stepanovna Politkovskaya was assassinated by contract hitmen in 2006, her body was found in the elevator of her Moscow housing complex. It happened on Vladimir Putin’s birthday, and some observers of the Russian political scene believe that someone was sending him a present. Politkovskaya’s dogged coverage of the Second Chechen War (1999-2005), particularly her exposés of corruption and human rights abuses, won her a long list of international journalism awards along with some powerful enemies in the Russian government and military. By the time of her death she had already survived two poisonings, a mock execution, detentions and beatings, rape and death threats and frequent official interrogations. None of the danger deterred her in her work. Now, Alexander Bakshi, a Georgian composer living in Moscow, has written an oratorio to commemorate her heroism, titled Requiem for Anna Politkovskaya. It has been transformed into a puppet opera by Amy Trompetter, founder of the Rosendalebased Redwing Blackbird Theater. The hybrid work will be unveiled this weekend at the Luma Theater in the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts, featuring musicians and singers from the Bard College Conservatory of Music and undergraduate performers. Requiem for Anna Politkovskaya will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday, May 18 to 20, with 2 p.m. matinées on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets cost $15; admission is free for the Bard community with ID. To purchase, visit https://bit. ly/2KoHqgG.

tories set in the past or future. Hudson’s Carrie Haddad Gallery has been a longtime champion of the duo’s creations, which Art + Design has described as “cautionary mythology.” In addition to exhibitions and installations, the pair have already published three books with Aperture Press: Scotlandfuturebog, City of Salt and Apollo Prophecies. Their latest, 100 Views of the Drowning World, was issued by Candela Books in 2017, and will be the basis of their live presentation on Saturday, May 19 at Hudson Hall in the historic Hudson Opera House. Against a backdrop of ecological decline, this

memoir/travelogue follows Dr. Falke, Count Orlofsky and Madame Lulu, three members of an itinerant theatrical troupe known as the Truppe Fledermaus, as they perform in various locations in Europe, England, America and Japan. The book, modeled on ukiyo-e series such as Hiroshige’s 100 Views of Edo, contains photographs of the Truppe, their travels and their performances with corresponding text narrating the images. It is the authors’ preference to have the pages of the book be loose and nonlinear, so that readers can explore the images and story in any order they prefer. A reading of 100 Views of the Drowning World will begin at 5 p.m. on Saturday, May

Rabbit Hole Ensemble performs Disappearing Act in Woodstock The Rabbit Hole Ensemble, a novel and small New York City-based theatrical company, introduces itself to the Woodstock community with a staged reading of Disappearing Act at the Kleinert/James Center for the Arts on May 18 and 19 at 7 p.m. and on Sunday, May 20 at 2 p.m. Written by Rabbit Hole artistic director and NYIT Award-winner Edward Elefterion, Disappearing Act examines the cost of making art in a world of increasing indifference. Cindy is a budding playwright who is studying (and having an affair) with her professor Dale, who chose a career in academia over moving to New York and trying for an acting career. Dale’s old flame Eleanor, who moved to New York and has just won the Pulitzer for Drama, is invited to speak at Dale’s college. While rehearsing the play, the three actors are forced to reassess their own careers, motives, goals and definitions of success/failure. The suggested donation is $10. The Kleinert/James Center for the Arts is located at 36 Tinker Street in Woodstock. For more information, visit www. rabbitholeensemble.com.

ALMANAC WEEKLY

May 17, 2018

ave you ever desired some homemade pie, but couldn’t resolve the craving yourself by baking one? That used to be me. I had fears of crust complications and suffered from rolling-pin repulsion. After a baker’s dozen of sticky and dusty, floury failures, I stopped

trying. If you can relate, I have a filling for this week’s column that just might ins-piere you. One day, I discovered this pie-ce de résistance, and everything changed. Introducing Slacker Pie Crust! Its charming, (c)rustic look and delicious taste transformed me from a dough dork to a crust connoisseur.

SLACKER PIE CRUST Ingredients: ½ cup of melted butter (or vegetable oil) ¼ cup of milk ½ teaspoon of salt 1 ½ cups of flour Mix all of the ingredients together (I melt the butter in the pie plate in the microwave and mix everything in the same dish). Then press along the bottom and sides of the pan. That’s it. You’re ready to fill or prebake it at 350 degrees. Pinch off the edges, or make more dough for a crumb topping. It’s as easy as pie!

“A cherry pie is…ephemeral. From the moment it emerges from the oven it begins a steep decline: from too hot to edible to cold to stale to mouldy, and finally to a post-pie state where only history can tell you that it was once considered food. The pie is a parable of human life.” – Nick Harkaway, The Gone-Away World I see parallels with Slacker Pie Crust in my cancer journey. The biggest one is that the impossible can be possible. Just as I couldn’t imagine pie crusts ever being in my future, I never expected I’d get terminal cancer, yet here we are. I never thought I’d get my family to Disney World, but we did, thanks to Inheritance of Hope. I never anticipated experiencing unendurable pain in my body, but I also never guessed I would surpass my pre-cancer weight levels at the gym. Not driving continues to be an intense struggle. Yet catching rides with friends brings me joy to spend that time together. Making homemade pie invites me to be present, assembling the ingredients and creating the dessert step-by-step, just like organizing the who, what, where, when and hows of my daily schedule and our family calendar requires mindfulness. I am grateful for the wafts of aroma from the oven that draw my kids into the kitchen wondering when we get to eat! Meds swirl through my body like my love for this family fuses into the food. No matter how we slice it, life is short. Perhaps we would all do well to follow Shel Silverstein’s example: “I might as well have one more piece of pie. / MMMM– OOOH–MY! / Chomp – Gulp – ‘Bye.” Head On and Heart Strong!

HISTORY that ultimately led to the founding of Greenmarket in New York City. Today, Benepe and his wife, Judith Spektor, divide their time between their home in Greenwich Village, which he has had for decades, and their Saugerties farmhouse, bought in 1983. Married three times (Benepe notes that the twists and turns of his career were in some instances determined by his relationships), he has five children. His son Adrian followed in his father’s footsteps, serving as New York City’s parks commissioner for eleven years (currently he is senior vice president and director of city parkland for the Trust for Public Land). Benepe remains active in local planning efforts, serving as vicechair of Saugerties’ Comprehensive Planning Committee and a member of its Historic Preservation Commission. He is also a founder and active organizer of the Saugerties Farmers’ Market. Almanac Weekly’s Lynn Woods recently interviewed Benepe.

Root of the matter One of the founders of NYC’s wildly successful Greenmarket (as well as the one in Saugerties), Barry Benepe recalls planting the seeds of a green revolution

O

ver the course of his long career, Saugerties’ Barry Benepe has had a beneficial impact on the quality of life in our cities and towns. His greatest contribution is perhaps the founding, with colleague Bob Lewis, of Greenmarket, the network of New York City farmers’ markets that began in 1976. The rest is history: New York City now has 70 market days – some locations, such as Union Square, have two or more markets a week – and the trend has spread to cities and towns all over America. Benepe, who looks amazingly fit for age 89 – he still climbs the stairs to his fourth-floor walk-up apartment in Greenwich Village – earned degrees from Williams College and MIT, with a stint at Cooper Union in between. He is a licensed architect who worked at several architectural and planning firms starting in the 1950s. In the early 1960s, he was a planner in Newcastleupon-Tyne, England, designing and overseeing the engineering of a series of pedestrian walkways and public squares; it was a radical departure from the job he was hired to do – design new highways and malls – but won the support of the municipality. Back in America, he did design and planning work for New York City’s urban renewal agency, creating plans for the Upper West Side. By then, planning had evolved from Robert Moses’ brutal slum clearance, and the projects that Benepe worked on sought to rehabilitate existing buildings for low-income housing and preserve others, as well as tear down some tenement buildings on the basis of their poor design. He created a design that would integrate the American Museum

of Natural History and other institutions into the neighborhood and streetscape, made renderings of multifunctional street amenities and benches and designed ways to improve that area’s walkability. While some of his plans sat on the shelf (one of the frustrations of the municipal planner is that he or she lacks the political clout and administrative tools to get the job done), decades later certain elements became reality. In 1968, Benepe brought his planning expertise to Newburgh, when he was hired as the city’s first planner. He discovered that the Newburgh Urban Renewal Agency was tearing down chunks of the early-19thcentury streets that had attracted him to the city in the first place. He fought for plans that would harmonize with the existing neighborhood and save rather than destroy the historic buildings. He was successful in proposing a mixed-income housing project and spearheaded the creation of the East End Historic District, which stopped the bulldozers and saved many buildings of historic significance, such as the Dutch Reformed Church, the County Courthouse and several homes along Grand and Montgomery Streets. Benepe’s passion for historic

preservation manifested in two books: Early Architecture in Ulster County, commissioned by the Junior League of Kingston, and Newburgh Revealed, a survey of outstanding Victorian architecture, including buildings that had been torn down by urban renewal, with

In the late 1970s, he started spending time in Woodstock and had a hand in creating its first zoning map, which incorporated contour lines, floodplains and water bodies. It was at this time that he hired Bob Lewis to work at his planning firm. The two men began talking about how to save the farmland that was vanishing around them: a conversation

You were born in 1928 and grew up in Gramercy Park. What did your parents do, and what were your childhood and student years like? My mother was an artist who did fashion illustration, and my father had an embroidered-linen business on Madison Square. His company also imported Madeira wine from Portugal. I went to Friends’ Seminary, walking to school through a neighborhood dating from the mid-19th century: an exposure that probably explains why I have always been attracted to older parts of the city. I later went to St. Andrew’s, a boarding school in Delaware, then attended Williams College, where I initially majored in Economics and Spanish because I thought I would go into my father’s business. I took an art class in my junior year, which got me interested in European culture, and switched my major to Art History. My dad paid for me to spend the summer in Europe; I traveled around on a bike with a roommate, staying in hostels. The influence was pretty profound: Amiens Cathedral impressed me, because even though it was so massive, the columns met the floor on a human scale. On a later trip, I saw Le Corbusier’s Ronchamp Chapel, which is extraordinary. I entered a painting and a mixed-media piece into a student art show in my senior year, and both won First Prizes. I did stage design for the theater and worked on the class musical with Stephen Sondheim, who was a fellow student. After graduating from Williams, I went to Cooper Union. My father was really encouraging: When I was a child, he’d always take me to his office on Saturday and give me art materials. He had a resident artist who designed his printed cottons, and he had him teach me art. My mother gave me all her drawing materials and was a big influence also. I had an older brother who did go into the family business, so I was off the hook. You were first exposed to planning principles at Cooper Union. One of the basic courses I took at Cooper was Architectural Rendering, taught by Robert Stein, who was a member of the International Congresses for Modern Architecture, an interdisciplinary group of architects and artists who were following Le Corbusier. We would meet in the evenings at his office and discuss planning principles. I was part of a team project in which we had to design an outdoor museum. My task was to draw the site plan and coordinate the location of the buildings; even then I was doing planning, though architecture was the focus. Stein talked about how to define communities in terms of their population.


May 17, 2018 Planning intrigued me because it involved people and real life. Space can have a profound emotional impact, even if it’s not occupied. There’s a highrise by Catalan architect Ricardo Bofill in Montparnasse, in Paris, that works with classical forms in a modern way. The building rises on classical columns and the scale is massive, but at the bottom of the building, people are having a good time running around. It works in a human way. Whereas the Barbican Center, in London, is dead. You made a significant art purchase when you were at Cooper Union. One of my teachers told me about a show at the Sidney Janis Gallery, so I went. The artist was Willem de Kooning, and I wanted to buy a small pastel priced at $350, entitled Woman. I only had $200 in my bank account, so Sidney said I could have it for that. I learned later I was the only buyer except for the Museum of Modern Art. De Kooning’s studio was in back of my loft, which was on the top floor and had a skylight; I never met him, but would see him painting. I later sold the pastel for $5,000. Recently it was featured on the cover of a brochure for an auction at Sotheby’s and was sold for $3.2 million. What brought you to MIT? Any interesting summer jobs during this time? One of my teachers suggested I apply to MIT, so I left Cooper after my second year (and never consulted my father; he was furious). I went to Morristown, New Jersey one summer to work on a housing project designed by Abraham Geller, who studied under Marcel Breuer. I was impressed with his approach: His ranchstyle houses had low shed or peaked roofs and were connected to the garage or a carport with a breezeway, and he varied the texture of the board exteriors, which were vertical and horizontal, and painted them in earth colors. He also sited the houses so they fitted the land well. Part of my job was shaping the land, which I’d rake, like Rodin doing a sculpture. One of the lecturers at MIT was Buckminster Fuller, and Carl Koch was a teacher of Architecture who designed a housing project in which the houses had a glass gable end, from the peak to the ground, outside of Cambridge. I took a course in Planning and left with a degree in Architecture, graduating in 1955. What were some aspects of your plans for the Upper West Side? The plan that encompassed West 86th, Central Park West, West 96th and Columbus Avenue had a three-pronged approach based on conservation, especially along Central Park West, rehabbing the brownstones on the side streets and redevelopment of Columbus Avenue. We tried to convert rooming houses into single-family homes. I was doing propaganda for urban renewal – making before-and-after renderings that showed a room with a single lightbulb, which after rehab had a modern elegant bedroom with good daylight. Some of the tenements were bought by the New York City Housing Authority and converted into apartments, which was the most successful low-income housing because it was integrated into the existing housing. I made models of high-rises with glass fronts that weren’t great. We created pedestrian walkways that were set back 100 feet from the avenue, which didn’t make sense; later we refocused the sidewalk back to the avenue, to emphasize the traditional retail component. I also had open spaces created mid-block between the sides of the buildings. It didn’t happen in this project, but the concept has been adopted in the last 30 years. What are your ideas for affordable housing? When I was in Newburgh in 1968, I designed a housing project for singleperson houses. I called them patio houses, since each had a veranda. The problem with public housing is the design is separate from the city, and there’s no

ALMANAC WEEKLY frontage on the street. The developers didn’t create any ground-floor use, where people could sit outside and have a barbecue. What was different about your experience in England? Newcastle-upon-Tyne was unique because enormous numbers of people walked to the center or took buses. We linked the walkways to the center, the heartblood of the city; and we valued the historic architecture, including stairs that went down to the waterfront. All that history was still there. In England they take planning seriously; here it’s seen as advisory, with developers making the determination. How did you learn about Newburgh? I read about Newburgh in The New York Times and was intrigued by the photos of cobblestone streets; it was a hotbed of Romantic 19th-century architecture. I was hired by the city manager as the first city planner. John Stillman, who came from a lot of money – his family had given money

“Those artists in the 1850s had a vision of nature and architecture working together that’s very relevant today.” for Palisades Park – was the director of urban renewal. He’d been hired through the Democrats and was a friend of Hubert Humphrey. I learned about the Hudson River School of painting and landscape architecture and how that tradition was represented in Newburgh, and I found out on the job that it was being destroyed. I went into the houses, which were pretty much owned by black people, such as the Samuel Hodge funeral home on Montgomery, designed by Calvert Vaux for W. E. Warren in 1857. It was described by professor George Tatum as “the most outstanding of Vaux’s residential designs in the United States.” These people were middle-class black families who had moved to Newburgh early on, and the owners were proud of their homes. There were still remnants of professionalism and a solid middle-class community, but people were moving out to the Town of New Windsor. What were some of your ideas? Part of Colden Street had been torn down when I got there, and I brought in the developers Bogdanoff and Tangredi, who worked in Westchester, to show how the waterfront could be built. The city manager was very supportive and arranged a meeting with mayor George McNeally. After McNeally refused to meet with the developers, they concluded, “We know when we're not wanted.” I designed Palatine Square, a public space fronting the monumental 1835 Dutch Reformed Church. My design served to integrate the historic structure with three existing buildings around a square with a view of the Hudson; parking was provided underground. Unfortunately, it was never built. [Instead, the new public library was constructed with little regard for the adjacent church, which is now in a desperate state of neglect and serves as a backdrop for parked cars.] Rosen Associates had produced a plan in 1966 that would have leveled the entire East End, which Stillman supported. After a public hearing at which I spoke about the value of 33 historic buildings slated for demolition, Stillman said, essentially, “Drop dead.” The Federal Housing Act had just been amended to require urban renewal plans to take into account historic resources, which the Rosen plan did not do. One of the Republican members of the City Council supported my plan for the East End, because retaining the buildings meant there would be less pressure to relocate people.

Was racism a factor in making these decisions? In 1970 I was living on Grand Street, and an interracial couple wanted to get married in a public park, where there was a natural amphitheater of evergreens. They had a permit, but at the last minute the city prevented them from having the wedding. I said, “You can have it on my lawn,” which they did. I had a sailboat, and I later heard from the head of the Planning Board, who was a member of the Yacht Club, something disturbing. A county legislator, who was head of the Yacht Club, had told the members, “Benepe wanted to become a member of the Yacht Club, but I told him I didn’t want him or his nigger friends here.” Wow, that’s terrible. And this was in the early 1970s. Did anything positive come out of your plans? Mario Cuomo was wrong when he championed the people in Queens who didn’t want low-income housing in Forest Hills Gardens. I proposed that the Lake Street District low-income project in Newburgh planned for the West Side of the city include middle-class housing and shopping. Mid-Hudson Patterns for Progress enlarged my project to three times the size and made it work. The state wanted to reroute a proposed arterial to the west, but I opposed that, and lobbied to keep Route 9W as an avenue and create a greenway that links to the waterfront. After your job was eliminated by the new city manager, you didn’t go away. With others, I started the Greater Newburgh Arts Council to carry through a plan for the East End Historic District. We produced an alternate plan entitled Newburgh Revealed, which was funded by the National Trust and New York Council of the Arts. Jack Present, who took over from Stillman, wanted to tear down the Dutch Reformed Church. That plan led to the creation of the Historic District by the State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, one of the earliest state-designated Historic Districts. You and Bob Lewis had a great idea: starting urban farmers’ markets as a way to keep local farms in business. How did you actually make it happen? We had a model in Syracuse, which we read about in The New York Times. I got in touch with Susan Snook, director of the Syracuse Chamber of Commerce, who started the market, and found it was very successful. We went to foundations to fund a feasibility study and presented a proposal to the Council of the Environment of New York City, a nonprofit run by city agencies and businesses. I became their consultant and the head of the newly formed Greenmarket. My role was to raise money to pay my salary. An employee of the Kaplan Foundation suggested using a lot near her house, on 59th Street and Second Avenue, which was used by the police to park their cars; I had to meet with a lot of people to make this happen. The market opened in 1976, and the locale was ideal because Bloomingdale’s and Alexander’s department stores were a block away. I

was in charge of publicity, sending out news releases, since there was no money for ads. The TV networks covered the story as a wrap-up on the weekend news. The word was out big-time. The next year two additional markets opened in the city, including one at Union Square. The park was dying on its feet; drug traffic had taken over, and the adjoining stores were closing. After seeing the market at 59th Street, the head of the Manhattan Planning Office asked if we could open a market at the Square as a way to help save the neighborhood. I said, “Sure, if you can get the required permits from the Traffic and Highway Departments.” We got them, and the first few years were dismal. But people began writing about us. Bob also opened a market in Harlem, partnering with Harlem Teams for Self-Help, and got writer John McPhee to work at the market behind a stand, which led to a story published in The New Yorker entitled “Giving Good Weight.” “Giving Good Weight” was read into the Congressional Record by a congressman from California. The farmers’-market movement went national. You’re currently active in planning efforts in Saugerties. What are the challenges? I’ve spoken to the woman who runs the HUD office in Saugerties, and she said the waiting list for low-income housing runs into the hundreds. There’s a great need and a lot of resistance. Although there is a provision in the zoning law that stipulates ten percent of new housing in conservation subdivisions should be affordable, no developers have adopted this. The provision allows for cluster planning, which creates an average zoning density for a given parcel, saving open space and allowing for ribbons of open space connecting development; but no such developments have yet been built. There’s also a proposal by the town to allow illuminated moving-image signs. I’ve done drawings showing both how bad they would look and how much better the normal permitted signs appear. Any suggestions on how to change this mindset? We should go back to the 19th-century roots of the Hudson River School of painting, architecture and landscape architecture. Those artists in the 1850s had a vision of nature and architecture working together that’s very relevant today. One positive effort is the creation of the Saugerties Farmers’ Market, which connects people to the land and saves working farms. – Lynn Woods The Saugerties Farmers’ Market opens its 17th season on Saturday, May 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Cahill Elementary School parking lot at 115 Main Street in Saugerties.

After a hiatus of six years, the Saugerties Historic House Tour is back. Two bus tours, each carrying a guide, will be available on Saturday, May 19: a morning excursion leaving Saugerties High School at 9 a.m. and an afternoon tour leaving from the same location at 1 p.m. Each tour will last approximately three hours. The tours are sponsored by the Town of Saugerties Historic Preservation Commission, and they will focus on the northern quadrant of Saugerties, where tourgoers will learn about the area’s historic connection with the Palatine immigrants of 1710, who established a community in West Camp. Some members of that original community moved west, reaching central New York and northern Pennsylvania, but others stayed in Saugerties, particularly in the Asbury area. Earlier this year, the Town of Saugerties Historic Preservation Commission began the process of designating the Asbury settlement as a historic rural landscape district – a first for Saugerties, according to Preservation Commission member Susan Puretz. “We have individual houses registered as historic,” she says, “but this is the first district.” The designation will include the Trumpbour Homestead (a National and State Historic Register landmark) along with several stone houses, two Colonial roadbeds, a Methodist cemetery of national significance and archaeological sites of lost settlement areas recorded on old surveys. The bus-tour route will offer views of some of the 68 stone houses in Asbury, Saxton and Blue Mountain. In addition to the Palatines, the influence of the English,

May 17, 2018 German and Dutch settlers is also found in the northern quadrant. While there are many similarities in construction techniques of the various groups of settlers, there are also notable differences. The guide on each bus will point out interesting details on the drive, and an informative brochure will be provided with route descriptions as well as useful architectural and historic facts. The bus will stop to explore the interiors of three of these stone houses, which date from the late 1700s to the early 1800s. The first house, says Puretz, is an elegant home that was built on land farmed by one of the original Palatines. House two is a working farm, in the owners’ family for many generations. The third house, where the tour concludes, is an example of a “bank house,” built into the side of a bank. “You enter downstairs,” Puretz explains. “If you look at it from one side, you only see the top floor, but on the other side, you can see it’s actually two-and-a-half stories.” Complimentary refreshments will be served at the third house, whose owner is also on the Preservation Commission committee organizing the tour. In a fun twist on the historic theme for the day, she will offer refreshments of a type that would have been served in the era when the house was built.

ART

REGISTER FOR GLASSMAKING DEMOS ABOARD GLASSBARGE

T

he Corning Museum of Glass is a must-see stop if you’re touring New York’s Southern Tier or the Finger Lakes, but Corning is a bit of a schlep from the Hudson Valley for a day trip. Now, in honor of the 2018 bicentennial of the Erie Canal, and the 150th anniversary of the relocation of the Brooklyn Flint Glass Company to Corning, this center of the US glassmaking industry is bringing its fascinating art right to us, via a one-of-a-kind floating venue called GlassBarge. This 30-by 90-foot steel canal barge has a glassblowing demonstration studio built-in, and it’ll be on tour in the mid-Hudson in June. GlassBarge will be open for free public deck tours each day, and provide free glassblowing demonstrations from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. All demos are approximately 30 minutes long, and seating is limited, so guests are strongly encouraged to register online for specific demonstration locations and times. Registration will be available four to six weeks prior to each stop – which means that you can sign up now, folks. This opportunity won’t last. Launching in Brooklyn Bridge Park on May 17, GlassBarge will make its way up the Hudson, stopping at Poughkeepsie’s Waryas Park June 8 through 10, the Hudson River Maritime Museum on Kingston’s Strand June 15 to 17 (joined by the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum’s replica canal schooner Lois McClure) and Historic Catskill Point on June 19. It will then travel north on the Hudson, then westward along the Erie Canal before making its way to the Finger Lakes.

Michelle Shocked

SHOW

MICHELLE SHOCKED TO HEADLINE THE FALCON’S SPRINGFEST NEXT SATURDAY

T

he Falcon began as a labor-of-love venue for intimate house concerts, but it expanded rapidly to a new building (a renovated button factory) with great acoustics and top-tier jazz, blues, world, folk and rock musicians. Then it added a second stage to provide airtime for more experimental (and local) music. From its early days, it has also been an actively curated art gallery and – as of recently – a museum as well (the Avalon Archives, located in the Falcon Underground). Given this scope, it is not really such a surprise that the Falcon’s Springfest all-day event on Saturday, May 26 is a highly conceptual unified multimedia event: The Falcon in Delusionville, a festival revolving around Ron English’s Rabbits in Delusionville rock opera and artwork. Curated by Ron English, the three-stage, noon-to-close show boasts an impressive list of performers, including the incendiary folk/rocker Michelle Shocked, legendary jam band (and Soulive antecedent) Moon Boot Lover, local star Decora, former We Must Be songwriter Christine Dominguez and many more. Per usual at the Falcon, there is no cover charge – even for a full-day, 12act festival in an utterly classy environment by the stunning Marlboro Falls– but generous direct-to-the-artist donation is what keeps the boat afloat. The Falcon is located at 1348 Route 9W in Marlboro. For more information, visit www.liveatthefalcon.com. – John Burdick

Tangles of yarn An update on String Theory

F

or nearly a century, science has tried to create a Grand Unified Theory. It’s a noble goal, attempting to tie together all the universe’s forces. Einstein struggled unsuccessfully with this most of his life, and he wasn’t alone. But, listening to PBS specials or self-serving books, the struggle seems almost over, the goal almost at hand. Its name is String Theory. String Theory claims that at the tiniest levels of existence – a trillionth of a trillionth of a trillionth the size of an atomic nucleus – vibrating threads can link up in various ways to produce the universe’s four forces. Such an image is simple, but the actual theory is complex and fragmentary. Right from the get-go, many physicists – including those in our region at Vassar and Bard – have been shaking their heads. Problem One is that String Theory doesn’t work in our reality of three dimensions, plus a dimension of time. To make it work, its creators had to invent seven additional dimensions, for which our own senses and the rest of science have not a shred of evidence. Nor can the existence of any of those dimensions be tested. Problem Two is that String Theory is unfalsifiable. This means that no experiment can tell if it’s right or wrong. Problem Three is that String Theory’s only prediction proved to be incorrect by 50 orders of magnitude. All this made Columbia University physicist Peter Woit adapt Wolfgang Pauli’s old exclamation from a lifetime ago. Woit says of String Theory: “It’s not even wrong!” (Not Even Wrong is also the title of Woit’s 2006 book on the subject.) We might wonder why universities and the mass media would play with strings for decades if it’s imaginary and untestable. Until recently, science dealt with new theories mercilessly – by testing them. Confirmed ones were kept; wrong ones were tossed. But this time, string theorists have managed to include dreamlike dimensions, argue that no testing is possible, and yet somehow keep the fantasy train chugging along. Peter Woit thinks the main reason is because it’s the only game in town, the hot-button label, the sure way to get funding and publicity. But he wonders how much longer the

media will focus on a well-promoted-but-never-successful theory that has no connection with the physical world. In a Scientific American blog last April, John Horgan wrote: “At its best, physics is the most potent and precise of all scientific fields, and yet it surpasses even psychology in its capacity for bullshit.” To support this harsh assessment, he offered a recent conversation that he had with Woit, who said, “Experimental results from the Large Hadron Collider show no evidence of the extra dimensions or supersymmetry that string theorists had argued for as ‘predictions’ of string theory. The internal problems of the theory are even more serious now, after another decade of research. These include the complexity, ugliness and lack of explanatory power of [efforts] to connect String Theory with known phenomena, as well as the continuing failure to come up with a consistent formulation of the theory.” Yet another string aspect is its fallback on multiverses. Said Woit in the Scientific American Horgan blog, “The problem with such things as String-Theory multiverse theories is that ‘The multiverse did it’ is not just untestable, but an excuse for failure. You might as well say, ‘The Jolly Green Giant did it.’” To be fair to multiverses, there are different versions of them – like the edition that’s central to quantum theory’s “Many Worlds Interpretation.” That multiverse topic is a realm unto itself. Let’s devote a column to it soon. – Bob Berman Want to know more? To read Bob’s previous columns, visit our Almanac Weekly website at HudsonValleyOne.com.

GARDENER’S NOTEBOOK

Garden beds: To raise or not to raise?

M

y vegetable garden is in beds. Your vegetable garden is in beds. Seems like just about everybody plants in beds these days – and with good reason: Beds make more efficient use of garden space. Soil compaction is avoided because planting, weeding, pruning and harvesting can be done with feet in the paths. And the shapes of the beds can help make even a vegetable garden look prettier, especially with decorative plants edging the beds. Raised beds are also one way to grow happy plants in otherwise-poorly-drained ground, or in ground that has been contaminated by lead or arsenic. Such contamination is likely to occur from past use of leaded gasoline near roadways, from old paint near buildings and from residual pesticides in sites that were once orchards. My vegetable garden is laid out in threefoot-wide beds with 18-inch-wide paths between them that feed into one five-footwide bed down the center of the garden. Many gardeners, when considering planting in beds, equate that with raised beds. My vegetable beds are not intended to be raised even a hair above the paths. When I began my garden, I laid out the beds and covered them with compost, and then laid wood chips from local arborists in the paths. The difference in appearance of the two materials makes it easy to see where to walk and where not to walk. (For most people, that is: A well-known food writer once visited my garden. As I walked up a path, he tromped along next to me – right up the middle of the bed adjacent to the path! – until I let out a scream that brought him to an abrupt stop. Some lush plants in the bed were admittedly flopping onto the path, obscuring the difference between walking and planting areas.)

Most people bring in soil for raised beds, and, in the interest of having the best possible garden, make that “soil” compost. Not a good idea.

Soil in raised beds is usually held there with boards or other edging. That edging material might itself be decorative: lumber, bricks, roof tiles or, in a “Colonial” garden, logs. Ideally, any wooden edging is rot-resistant. Locust or redwood would be my top choices, but hard to get. “Manufactured” lumber, such as Trex, is another possibility. Then again, pine or spruce boards are readily available, relatively inexpensive and should last quite a few years. A six-inch-high bed provides enough well-drained root depth for pretty much all vegetable plants. One disadvantage to raised beds is that you have get soil to fill them up. That soil could, of course, come from what will be the paths. If the area is wet, though, taking soil from paths is going to lower them, making them that much wetter. Most people bring in soil for raised beds, and, in the interest of having the best possible garden, make that “soil” compost. Not a good idea. For one thing, compost is mostly “organic matter,” meaning compounds of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. With time, as organic matter decomposes to nourish soil microorganisms and plants, it disappears, literally, becoming carbon dioxide and water. So a raised bed filled with compost will eventually shrink down to almost nothing. The thing to do is to fill beds almost to their brims with any well-drained soil. Fertility is not important; that will come from the one to two inches of compost with which the soil is topped. Replenishing the compost each year will provide all the nutrition that plants need for that year; no additional fertilizer is necessary. And no need to dig or rototill the compost into the ground. One more thing about raised beds: The improved drainage also means that they dry out faster, so benefit from irrigation. residents 55 and older. $1 donation.

DION OGUST | ALMANAC WEEKLY

If you were to walk into my garden, you might notice that my planting beds are indeed a bit higher than the paths. This was not deliberate. Each year for many years, I’ve topped all my beds with an inch or two of compost. Paths get replenished with wood chips only if they start to get weedy or bare soil starts peeking through. If it weren’t for decomposition, those yearly additions of compost would have made each bed into a “table” more than three feet high. It hasn’t. QED. Upcoming event: Saturday, June 2 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. is my annual plant sale of permaculture plants, native plants, beautiful plants, luscious plants and beautiful-and-luscious plants – all organically grown.

Emigrants Leaving the Palatinate for America (Courtesy of Mainz University)

HISTORY

ost Hudson Valley residents are at least somewhat familiar with the history of Dutch, English and Huguenot settlements in the region; but who were these mysterious Palatines? And why did they come to these parts in the first place? The Palatinate is a region in southwestern Germany, sandwiched between the Rhine Valley in the east and Lorraine in the west. It’s where Moselle wine comes from, among other desirable attributes. Its proximity to the French border was the source of most of its troubles in the late 17th and early 18th century, when Louis XIV was gradually expanding his empire by nudging out his frontiers wherever he could find some dubious document or other to substantiate France’s land claims. With his eye on annexing the rich agricultural Rhineland, the Sun King came up with a hypothesis that the Palatinate really belonged to his sisterin-law, and proceeded to try to take it over. By the late 1680s, the mostly Protestant Palatinate – die Pfalz, in German – was already playing host to Huguenot refugees who had been forced to flee France when Louis revoked the Edict of Nantes. The Nine Years’ War between France and the Holy Roman Empire’s Grand Alliance commenced in 1688 when Louis’ army invaded the Rhineland. The Huguenots in the Palatinate – mainly educated, bourgeois families with the means to travel – escaped to England, South Africa and the New World, including the founding families of New Paltz. Not so lucky were the masses of native German Palatines, who were largely illiterate and unskilled farm laborers. Throughout the Nine Years’ War and subsequent War of Spanish Succession, passing French armies devastated the region, ransacking towns, forcibly conscripting young men and torching the croplands. The Palatines were reduced to desperate poverty and famine; and although the region usually enjoys a mild climate, the winter of 1708 is said to have been so harsh that birds froze solid in midair and grapevines were blasted to the roots. Meanwhile, agents from the American Colonies had been recruiting Germans to emigrate and work on plantations. Britain under Queen Anne began to create incentives for mass immigration to build up the nation’s workforce. So in 1709 German Protestant peasants began to flee down the Rhine Valley by the thousands, headed for England. The trouble was that a divided Parliament couldn’t quite figure out what to do with the 13,000 or so “Poor Palatines” – so-called for their destitute condition – who arrived in that one year. Then as now, political parties had very different views on whether the most recently arrived crop of immigrants was an asset (the Whigs) or a scourge (the Tories). A huge winter camp for the refugees was set up on the outskirts of London, and efforts – mostly unsuccessful – were made to relocate them throughout the British Isles. Most of the Palatines had already heard the siren call of the Golden Land of the Americas, however, and resisted being sent to the poorer parts of Scotland and Ireland. In 1710 the English acquiesced, providing ten ships to relocate nearly 3,000 of the refugees to New York, although hundreds of the malnourished passengers succumbed to illness and died en route. The survivors were settled in the mid-Hudson on both banks of the river, at the sites still known as West Camp, near Saugerties, and East Camp, on the Livingston estate in Columbia County, giving Germantown its present-day name. By 1711, seven Palatine settlements had been established on the Livingston manor. To work off their passage, the Palatines were required to toil at the production of supplies needed by the British Navy. Unfortunately, what the Navy needed most were tar, which didn’t occur in significant natural deposits in the Hudson Valley; pitch, which the local species of pine were not suited to produce in reasonable quantities; and hemp, to whose cultivation the Northern climate was inhospitable. So in 1712, the British government stopped supporting the Palatine settlements, and the inhabitants began to find themselves new places to live and new sources of livelihood. – Frances Marion Platt

Immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity. Oh, Star of the Sea, help me and show me herein you are my mother. Oh, Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth! I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to succor me in this necessity. There are none that can withstand your power. Oh, show me herein you are my mother. Oh Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee (3x). Holy Mother, I place this cause in your hands (3x). Holy Spirit, you who solve all problems, light all roads so that I can attain my goal. You who gave me the divine gift to forgive and forget all evil against me and that in all instances in my life you are with me, I want in this short prayer to thank-you for all things as you confirm once again that I never want to be separated from you in eternal glory. Thank-you for your mercy towards me and mine. The person must say this prayer 3 consecutive days, the request will be granted. This prayer must be published after the favor is granted.
