POSEZENI: Remembering New York’s Little Bohemia

discussion 20 February, 2018 - 7:00 PM

[BBLA at Bohemian National Hall]


An informal POSEZENI, a chat around a table with wine or beer and memories of the old timers who live(d) in the neighborhood of the Bohemian National Hall (BNH) on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Some of the speakers are also active in the Bohemian Benevolent & Literary Association (BBLA), which built the Hall in 1897. 

POSEZENI will be moderated by Vit Horejs, with a brief introduction to the history of the community by Dr. Vlado Simko. In English with Czech songs.


The event is part of a series commemorating the 100th-year anniversary of the creation of Czechoslovakia in 1918 and the contribution that BBLA and New York Czechs and Slovaks made.
