September 11th, 2016

Fundraiser Dinner – Turkish Festival
Event on 2016-09-22 19:00:00
The American-Turkish Association of Washington D.C. is proud to present the 14th Annual Turkish Festival, offering a day of free activities including dance, music, cuisine, fashion and arts & crafts. Every year, the festival draws tens of thousands of Washingtonians to the streets to enjoy delicious Turkish food and traditional Turkish coffee, to browse and shop at the Turkish Bazaar, and to watch mesmerizing stage performances. This year, once again festival goers will have the opportunity to journey from Washington D.C. to Turkey through experiencing Turkey’s rich cultural history, its culinary delights, and a variety of live Turkish music and engaging folk dance performances. The festival will also reach beyond Turkey’s borders featuring the rich cultural presence of the Balkans, Central Asia, and the Middle East. The Turkish Festival is a community event. It is organized, delivered, and financed by the Turkish American community and businesses in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area. Each year, ATA-DC’s Festival Committee works hard to develop a more attractive event so as to increase the number of visitors and thus, to more fully accomplish our event's mission. Over the years, these efforts have paid off, and the festival now has more artists, more food vendors, and more retail vendors than in previous years. In 2009, for the first time ever, the Festival received a grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.As ATA-DC is preparing for the 11th Annual Washington, DC Turkish Festival, they are proud that this exciting, colorful, and rich event has become a DC tradition that contributes to the city’s ethnic, cultural and religious diversity For more information on Turkish Festival, check out their website at http://www.turkishfestival.org/

NYC – Greenwich Village: Washington Mews – NYU – La Maison Française
Washington music
Image by wallyg
La Maison Française, at 16 Washington Mews, houses New York University’s French House, which has beenn the center of French-American cultural and intellectual exchange since its founding in 1957.

When Capt. Richard Randall died in 1801, he left his large farm north of Washington Square to be improved with a home for elderly and disabled sailors. But Sailors’ Snug Harbor, as the institution became known, never followed Randall’s plan instead leasing the land under a master plan that resulted in row houses along Washington Square North and Eighth Street. A back alley, dividing the two rows between 5th Avenue and University place was dedicated to two-story stables.

Various lessees, working under a uniform master plan, built rows of houses along the north side of Washington Square and the south side of Eighth Street, from Fifth Avenue to University Place. They established a back alley dividing the two rows, dedicating it to two-story brick stables.

Originally open, the alley was gated off in 1881 to distinguish the privately owned Mews from public streets. By the early 20th century, the motor car rapdily phased out the horse and carriage and in 1916 Sailors’ Snug Harbor converted 12 of the stables into artist studios. Architects Maynicke & Franke covered the stables with light stucco and decorative tile. They replaced the old iron gate at University Place with an elaborate Mediterranean style birck and stucco gateway with lanterns.

In 1950, NYU leased the property. What was up until then a haven for artists like Paul Manship and Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney gradually became offices and faculty housing. Manship lived at No.44 and set up a studio was No. 46, the current site of Deutches Haus at NYU, where he made the John Pierpont Morgan Memorial and Jack Dempsey once shadow-boxed with Charlie Chaplin. Donald Desky designed the interior of Radio City Music Hall at the same No. 46. Beyond NYU’s purchase, though, Edward Hopper remained and died here in 1966.

The lane still has its distinctive Belgian block pavement, and in some cases, like that shown here, the stones are worn down sufficiently enough to resemble cobblestones.

Despite being private property, tourists have strolled their way onto the Mews. In the 1980’s, NYU built a six-foot-high gate for the Fifth Avenue end that is locked at night to protect residents.

Deputy FM Ayalon meets Turkish journalists 6Dec09

A few nice FM Washington images I found:

Deputy FM Ayalon meets Turkish journalists 6Dec09

On Sunday, 6 December 2009, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon met with a delegation of Turkey’s most influential media figures and academics on the issue of Turkish-Israel relations.

Ayalon told the delegation that relations between the two nations were back on track and as good as ever despite the recent harsh rhetoric. He rejected associating good relations with Turkey based on the conflict with Syria, Hizbullah or Hamas. "We can not allow them to have a veto on our strategic relations," Ayalon said.

On the question of Turkey’s role as mediator between Syria and Israel, Ayalon called on the Syrians to meet Israel face to face and without third party mediation. "We appreciate Turkish efforts and the previous talks did not fail because of Turkey but rather because of Syrian intransigence. However, if in the future we make progress with the Syrians and we will seek assistance from a third party, Turkey will be the first nation we will turn to," Ayalon continued.

The Deputy Foreign Minister also fielded questions on Iran and said that Turkey is important to send the correct messages to Tehran and hoped that if there are to be sanctions that Turkey will be on the right side.

The briefing was organized by Washington, DC and Jerusalem-based Project Interchange (an institute of the American Jewish Committee) and follows last month’s diplomatic visit to Turkey by Benjamin Ben-Eliezer, Israel’s Minister of Industry, Trade and Labor, during which he and Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc called for improved bilateral ties.
