PROTECTING THE ABUSED Larissa MacFarquhar, in her piece about Transition House, which serves domestic-violence survivors, portrays the organization as one in conflict with its past, by focussing on the dismantling of its early radical feminist agenda and relying, in part, on oddly juxtaposed and exaggerated comments to heighten the appearance of controversy (“A House of Their Own,” August 19th). As a result, the Transition House that MacFarquhar describes does not accurately reflect the one that I led, from 2008 to 2018. In one particularly misleading quotation, a former volunteer claims that, when I was the executive director, I would “trot” out the shelter’s residents during “parties.” MacFarquhar acknowledges that, once everyday technology made data mining and geo-tracking a ubiquitous part of life, it became impossible to conceal the addresses of domestic-violence shelters.…

goings on about town: this week

For the first time since the Met opened its Beaux-Arts building on Fifth Avenue, in 1902, works of art will grace the niches of its exterior. On Sept. 9, the museum inaugurates its Façade Commission with a quartet of seven-foot-high bronzes by the Kenyan-born artist Wangechi Mutu (pictured), who divides her time between Nairobi and New York City. The female figures are reminiscent of caryatids, seen in both ancient Greek temples and in the centuries-old carvings of the Luba people from Central Africa. CLASSICAL MUSIC Du Yun The Stone at the New School At first glance, the one predictable thing about Du Yun, the Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, performer, and multimedia artist, is her unpredictability. Dig deeper, though, and you can sense the conjoined strands of curiosity and compassion that run through everything she makes.…

tables for two: hutong

In northern China, hutongs are thin, narrow alleyways lined with cramped single-story houses in which families live communally, sometimes for generations. Depending on your point of view, to enter Hutong, the palatial Chinese restaurant that occupies the ground floor of the Bloomberg Tower, where the legendary Le Cirque once resided, is to feel either the triumph of Chinese haute cuisine as it conquers one of the world’s preëminent food capitals or disorientation at its newfound inaccessibility to the masses; the restaurant’s prices would cause a stroke for most real-life occupants of its humble namesake. At Hutong, opulence is an atmospheric condition, apparent as soon as you step into its blue-and-silver dining room: with its soaring vaulted ceiling, white mausoleum marble, and chandeliers resembling alien deities, the space evokes an Art Deco…

comment: another race to run

This summer, a Dallas Morning News poll asked Texas Democrats to pick their favorite from a list of declared candidates for the 2020 U.S. Senate race. The winner was: “Someone else.” This shadowy figure, who garnered nineteen per cent of the vote—almost twice that of the next nearest contender—was easily recognizable: he has the tall, lanky profile of former congressman Beto O’Rourke, of El Paso. About half of those polled said that O’Rourke should drop his Presidential bid and take on the Republican senator John Cornyn, whose approval rating is in the thirties. (Even Ted Cruz, whom O’Rourke almost defeated last year, does better than that.) “Beto, if you’re listening: Come home,” the Houston Chronicle said in an editorial after the poll was released. “Texas needs you.” He heard, but…

dept. of teen spirit: arrival

In “Moby-Dick,” Ishmael says that “whenever it is a damp, drizzly November of the soul,” when the impulse to knock people’s hats off for no reason gets too strong, it is time to take to the sea. Melville described men “posted like silent sentinels” at the edges of Manhattan, “fixed in ocean reveries.” Last Wednesday, in drizzly August, a crowd of two hundred or so waited at the North Cove Marina, in lower Manhattan, for the arrival of Greta Thunberg, the sixteen-year-old climate activist from Sweden. There were reasons to “start growing grim about the mouth,” as Melville put it: the Amazon rain forest was on fire; glaciers were calving into the sea; Tropical Storm Dorian was gathering strength in the Caribbean; scientists were trying to artificially inseminate the last two…
