This fall, a classic New York City block party becomes the enchanted setting where fairies work their mischief in Shakespeare’s beloved play A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Acclaimed director Jenny Koons takes you to the royal wedding of Theseus and Hippolyta, where a celebratory play is being rehearsed. But the real drama is unfolding in the concrete jungle of fairy King Oberon. There, four young New Yorkers discover the course of true love runs anything but smooth, as supernatural sprites and the lovable Puck conspire to reveal what fools we mortals be, and draw us all into the collective dream of romance and merriment.

Please note: RSVP is required. Please RSVP to hold your spot by emailing benny.adorno@parks.nyc.gov.

About the PublicTheater Mobile Unit
The Public Theater’s Mobile Unit is a reinvention of Joseph Papp’s “Mobile Theater,” which began in 1957. Papp’s original touring company evolved into the New York Shakespeare Festival, and ultimately became The Public Theater. All of it was built on a simple idea: Culture belongs to everyone. This idea remains at the heart of The Public Theater’s work to this day. And our Mobile Unit still takes this mission out to the communities across New York City, providing free performances to all. The Mobile Unit presents free Shakespeare to prisons, homeless shelters, and community centers throughout New York’s boroughs. Over the years, the Mobile Unit has served thousands of audiences with critically acclaimed productions. In addition to the community tour, each Mobile Unit show “sits down” at The Public Theater’s Astor Place home to perform for Public audiences and community organizations from all over the city.

In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City—a place where history is made, not merely recorded.

As a historic house museum run by NYC Parks, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together.

In celebration of our 75th Anniversary of Gracie being a mayoral residence, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled New York 1942. This is the second in a series of installations envisioning New York through the framework of Gracie Mansion as it has been inhabited over time. It includes artwork, documents and objects from the period that the La Guardias lived in Gracie, shown together to tell a more complete story of the overall historic context as perceived from diverse perspectives.

Art and science are more alike than one would think: a hypothesis or question turns into research and data collection, which is studied and digested, and then a product or conclusion is made. Both artists and scientists undergo novel and generative processes of inquiry and knowledge production. New York City Urban Field Station brings art and science together with their Artists in Residence program to foster this intersection and new ideas and programs about urban conservation and stewardship will emerge.

Join us as the current group and past group of NYC Urban Field Station Artists in Residents talk about their work and its possibilities and role in New York City. The event will take place at the Arsenal Gallery in Central Park, the headquarters of the NYC Parks Department, where the work of the first six participating artists will be featured.

This exhibition highlights projects explored in a variety of media by UFS resident artists Katie Holten, Matthew Jensen, Mary Mattingly, Lize Mogel, Heidi Neilson, and Adam Stoltman. The NYC UFS is a partnership between The USDA Forest Service, NYC Parks, and the Natural Areas Conservancy.

The Tottenville Historical Society invites you to visit Alice’s Garden, an arrangement of rare and unique architectural terra cotta ornaments. The garden is dedicated to the artisans of the Atlantic Terra Cotta Co., Tottenville, who crafted them more than 100 years ago.

The sculptured pieces, displayed with native plants in a natural landscape on the side lawn of the Biddle House, 70 Satterlee Street, exemplify the artistry of the firm’s talented but, for the most part, anonymous workforce.

Alice’s Garden is free and open to the public during regular park hours. Additional information about the Atlantic Terra Cotta Co. is available inside the H.H. Biddle House (open Saturdays from noon to 3:00 p.m. or by appointment)

The garden is made available with funding support from The Staten Island Foundation, The Nicotra Foundation, and members of the Tottenville Historical Society.

The Tottenville Historical Society invites you to visit Alice’s Garden, an arrangement of rare and unique architectural terra cotta ornaments. The garden is dedicated to the artisans of the Atlantic Terra Cotta Co., Tottenville, who crafted them more than 100 years ago.

The sculptured pieces, displayed with native plants in a natural landscape on the side lawn of the Biddle House, 70 Satterlee Street, exemplify the artistry of the firm’s talented but, for the most part, anonymous workforce.

Alice’s Garden is free and open to the public during regular park hours. Additional information about the Atlantic Terra Cotta Co. is available inside the H.H. Biddle House (open Saturdays from noon to 3:00 p.m. or by appointment)

The garden is made available with funding support from The Staten Island Foundation, The Nicotra Foundation, and members of the Tottenville Historical Society.

"Threads" examines the history of linen production from field to fabric. Visitors can examine the Conference House collection of antique tools of the trade such as flax break, hackle, carder, and spinning wheel.

The exhibit includes dried flax plant samples, yarn, and linens. Linen, a natural textile used and valued by humans for thousands of years for its useful properties, was the fabric of choice in colonial America. Linen fabric is made from the cellulose fibers that grow inside of the stalks of the flax plant. Linum usitatissimum is one of the oldest cultivated plants in human history.

The Tottenville Historical Society invites you to visit Alice’s Garden, an arrangement of rare and unique architectural terra cotta ornaments. The garden is dedicated to the artisans of the Atlantic Terra Cotta Co., Tottenville, who crafted them more than 100 years ago.

The sculptured pieces, displayed with native plants in a natural landscape on the side lawn of the Biddle House, 70 Satterlee Street, exemplify the artistry of the firm’s talented but, for the most part, anonymous workforce.

Alice’s Garden is free and open to the public during regular park hours. Additional information about the Atlantic Terra Cotta Co. is available inside the H.H. Biddle House (open Saturdays from noon to 3:00 p.m. or by appointment)

The garden is made available with funding support from The Staten Island Foundation, The Nicotra Foundation, and members of the Tottenville Historical Society.
