If you’ve never been to an event at the historic Alice Austen House, you’re missing out. Also known as “Clear Comfort,” the Alice Austen house was home of Alice Austen, a storied photographer, for most of her lifetime, and is now a NYC landmark, a museum and a member of the Historic House Trust.

In the upcoming weeks, there are a trio of great events that Staten Islanders can attend and visit the site. Here’s some information about each:

30th Anniversary Community Festival

Sunday, July 26th, 2015 (12-4PM) | Free

Including food, music, family activities, and tours to celebrate their 30th Anniversary, this festival also features music by Bob Wright & Bill Doerge (12:30) and Karlus Trapp (2:30). Food sponsors include Met Foods and Williams Eye Works.


Lori Belilove and the Isadora Duncan Dance Company

Saturday, August 1st, 2015 (6:30pm) | $10 Suggested Donation/$8 for Members

Lori Belilove & The Isadora Duncan Dance Company honor their namesake, revolutionary dancer Isadora Duncan, and Victorian rebel photographer Alice Austen, in a program of dances choreographed by Duncan, on the stunning grounds of the Alice Austen House. The dance company, the Beliloveables, and guest dancers will perform solos and group works inspired by Duncan’s technique and aesthetic. Bring your friends and a picnic: it promises to be a memorable evening.
