Come discuss plans for the future of one of New York's oldest houses, the John Bowne House in Flushing, Queens, built in 1661. Volunteering on behalf of the Bowne House Historical Society, students from St. John's University will lead two tours at 1:30 p.m. and again at 3:30 p.m. One tour will focus on how the house changed over time with the addition of utilities and other modern conveniences. Visitors can view the contents of a "forgotten" cistern revealed during archaeological excavation. A second tour will focus on the landscape, and discuss the once sprawling boundaries of the Bowne property. Special attention will be given to the surrounding neighborhood and Flushing's history as a center for nursery plants and trees.

Presented by WNET and Indie Lens Pop UP.

Join us for a preview screening of Peace Officer by Scott Christopherson and Brad Barber before it airs on PBS on May 9 at 9:00 p.m.

The increasingly tense relationship between law enforcement and the public is seen through the eyes of someone who's been on both sides: a former sheriff who established Utah's first SWAT team, only to see the same unit kill his son-in-law in a controversial standoff 30 years later. Now a private investigator, Dub seeks the truth in this case and other officer-involved shootings.

j and the 9s are a hard hitting, costumed flute rock experience from Brooklyn that breed together rock-and-roll riffs, the raw sound of punk, and an entertaining interactive stage show.

An artist reception for Dee Briggs in Foley Square will take place in the park on Thursday, May 19. The opening remarks will include Thomas Woltz, FASLA, Principal, Nelson Byrd Woltz; Jennifer Lantzas, Deputy Director of Public Art, NYC Parks; and the artist Dee Briggs.

Located in Thomas Paine Park, part of the larger Foley Square area in Manhattan’s Civic Center, these three monumental public artworks deal directly with Briggs’ fascination with geometry and a form of symmetry called chirality. Chirality is defined as a three-dimensional object that has no internal plane of symmetry along the x, y or z-axis, which means that the object is different from its reflection.

Growing up in western Pennsylvania’s 1970s industrial landscape had a profound impact on Briggs and inspired her deep affinity for industrial materials and processes. For this exhibition, she explored the possibilities and limitations of weathered steel.

This event is FREE and open to the public.

Kick off the weekend with some local sounds at this monthly musical get-happy hour.

Every month Summer on the Hudson features a different artist to get your weekend started right. Meet up in West Harlem Piers Park with friends on the last Friday of the month for great music, fresh air, and beautiful scenery.

May 27
Elle Winston - This Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter's sound might best be described as a meeting of folk-legend James Taylor and powerful songstress Jill Scott. Her music is a deep mixture of jazz-inspired soul music, with hints of blues and rock—true American roots music.

June 24
Tattoo Money - Downtown stories fuse indie rock sounds with an 808

July 29
Consumata Sonidera - This performance features heavy tropical rhythms, sweet horn melodies, and vibrant percussions. Consumata collages a full spectrum of local and global sounds by means of cut-ups.

Aug 26
The Bones of J.R. Jones - "He's a one man band who can hold an audience rapt, rendering the cacophony of a stage full of musicians utterly unnecessary." - Noisey.Vice
