Stuyvesant's Ghost

This map comes from a recent radio project about Stuyvesant's Ghost:"Brooklyn's own experimental radio art station Free103.9 presents Peter Stuyvesant's Ghost, a multi-event project that is inspired by the cultural and physical changes in the landscape that is now New York City. Events bring together artists and researchers from NYC and the Netherlands to explore the link between art, performance, and environmental history around the footprint of Peter Stuyvesant's 17th-Century farm, which once occupied a significant part of the East Village and surrounding neighborhoods. Projects include the PSG Telephone Tour in which the audience utilizes cell and pay phones to access pieces of original sound art, and the Pre-Urban World Walking Tour and Talk which focuses on the environment of the pre-urban East Village and the changes that took place since. Free103point9 will broadcast daily transmissions on their website. Every day from 4PM to 5PM during the festival, the web site will feature sound art, discussion, environmental recordings and other relevant sound bytes. Wednesday, November 15 through Sunday, November 19 $10 per event Multiple locations around Manhattan, see the website for schedule and locations. City in a Soundwalk. Here's a pdf file of a chapter from a book, "NYC Ghost Stories," that is about Stuyvesant's Ghost 4MB, be patient the pdf's come in slower than the mov's.
