MANHATTAN —  Nothing says New York like a Jell-O-like model of Manhattan’s famous skyline.

Liz Hickok’s “Jelly NYC,” a 3-D replica of the Financial District and Lady Liberty, is just one of a series of unconventional cartographies on display at the Pratt Manhattan Gallery’s fall exhibit, “You Are Here: Mapping the Psychogeography of New York City.”

The collection, which also includes a chart of Craig’s List “missed connections” sites, a map of Manhattan bodegas, and an active bee honeycomb shaped in the form of the five boroughs, was brought together by Seattle-based guest curator Katharine Harmon.

Stonewall Inn (AP Photo/Kevin Larkin, File)

NEW YORK (AP) – A patron at the Stonewall Inn, a powerful symbol of the gay rights movement since protests over a 1969 police raid there, was tackled to the floor and beaten in an anti-gay bias attack over the weekend, authorities said Monday.

Two men were arrested in the early Sunday beating, which came little more than a day after a group of male friends bidding an affectionate good night to each other were attacked in another anti-gay assault elsewhere in Manhattan, prosecutors said.  (more…)

23-year-old Lewis and Clark graduate teaching student Seth Stambaugh claims he has been discriminated against while on an assignment as a student teacher at an elementary school in the Beaverton, Oregon Student District. This comes after a second complaint from a parent who had initially already complained about the way Stambaugh was dressed. What was he wearing at the time? According to Oregon Live, “pressed pants, an oxford shirt, a tie and a cardigan. Stambaugh has a light Van Dyke and pulls his hair back into a pony tail.” Stambaugh is represented by an attorney, Lake Perriguey.

The Portland Mercury details the second complaint by the very same parent:

Later in the week, Stambaugh was leading a journaling activity in the classroom when one of the students asked whether Stambaugh was married. Stambaugh said he was not and, when the student asked why, replied that it would be illegal for him to get married because he “would choose to marry another guy.” The student pressed further, asking if that meant Stambaugh liked to hang out with guys and Stambaugh responded, “Yeah.” That was the end of the conversation.

After that, says Perriguey, word of the short conversation apparently got back to parent who had previously complained about Stambaugh’s appearance. The parent called the school and threatened to remove his child from the classroom. (more…)

The 48th New York Film Festival Centerpiece Selection North American Premiere of:
Julie Taymor’s The Tempest

Renowned for her wonderfully inventive works for both stage and screen, Julie Taymor has applied her considerable talents to this fascinating rendering of Shakespeare’s late, great mystical romance. Exiled on a remote island, Prospera (Helen Mirren, extraordinary), the duchess of Milan, conjures up a storm to lure a bevy of characters from her past to shore, revealing in the process a skate of human frailties, illusions, kindness and nobility.
