Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings for one hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises.

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions.

SummerStage is the largest free performing arts festival in New York City. To celebrate its 30th season, SummerStage is showcasing nearly 200 unique artists.

This concert is presented in association with the Latin Alternative Music Conference.

Vicentico
Vicentico has long been a crucial figure in the history of rock music in Latin America. On top of a significant career as the lead vocalist of Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, he has also developed a successful solo career. Vicentico boasts six solo albums under his belt (all certified Platinum), successful international tours, and MTV, Gardel, and Latin GRAMMY awards. His most recent album Ultimo Acto, was released in January of this year. Recorded in Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, Kingston, and Buenos Aires, the album adds new takes to some of Vicentico’s most well-known solo hits. The album also includes collaborations with Willie Nelson, Sly & Robbie, Intocable, Our Latin Thing and Vicentico’s wife, Argentinean actress Vaeria Bertuccelli.

Ximena Sariñana
Ximena Sariñana Rivera is a Mexican singer-songwriter and actress. Sariñana has starred in and composed music for numerous films, including 2007’s Dos abrazos, for which she won ‘Best Female Actress’ at the 38th Diosas de Plata of Pecime awards. In 2009, she received critical acclaim, a GRAMMY nomination, and two Latin GRAMMY nominations for her debut album, Mediocre (2008). Sariñana went on to release two more albums, 2011’s self-titled Ximena Sariñana and 2014’s No Todo lo Puedes Dar. In September 2014, she was revealed as one of the judges for the reality talent show competition, Mexico tiene talento, the Mexican version of America’s Got Talent.

No Te Va Gustar
NO TE VA GUSTAR (translated in English to “you won’t like it”), was formed in 1994 in Montevideo, Uruguay. To date, the band has recorded and released 8 studio albums and 3 live DVDs, with every album going certified Gold or Platinum in Uruguay and Argentina. Their latest album, El tiempo otra vez avanza (2014) had a smashing number one debut in charts all over Latin America. NO TE VA GUSTAR has been on tour over the last decade travelling throughout South America, North America, and Europe. Nevertheless, the band’s heart and sound are firmly rooted in Montevideo. With its melancholic peace, the intellectual breeze of its pubs and cafés, and music floating in every corner, NTVG has built an expanding musical universe, inspired by the context of their hometown, as well as the stories they find and live along the way around the world.

In this 18th century play by Oliver Goldsmith, wealthy countryman Mr. Hardcastle arranges for his daughter Kate to meet Charles Marlow, the son of a rich Londoner, hoping the pair will marry. Unfortunately, Marlow is nervous around upper-class women, yet the complete opposite around working-class women. On his first acquaintance with Kate, the latter realises she will have to pretend to be 'common', or Marlow will not woo her. Thus Kate 'stoops to conquer', by posing as a maid, hoping to put Marlow at his ease so he falls for her.

The mission of Hudson Warehouse is to present the classics in exciting productions inspired by our past and relevant to our present day.

Located along the esplanade leading up to the recently opened High Bridge, Oh Sit! 14 Sculptors Consider the Chair is a group exhibition of nine artists’ public artworks. In a frantic world, finding a chair can be almost impossible and settling comfortably into one can be an enormous satisfaction. Sitting in the wrong seat can cause anxiety and an even pain. Exhibiting artists Dan Bergman, Allan Cyprys, Robert Dell, Gregoire Ferland, Esther Grillo, Christina Jorge, Siena Gillann Porta, Herb Rosenberg and Chuck von Schmidt respond imaginatively to the notion of sitting or using a chair. Oh Sit! is framed as an imperative, a command—a way of asking the viewer to look and really consider the concept “chair” both objectively and subjectively.
