Obie Award-winning director Robert O’Hara (Bootycandy, The Brother/Sister Plays (Part 2)) brings a warring King and his band of brothers to communities all across New York with Mobile Unit’s spring production of Henry V.

Insulted by the regent of France, Britain’s King Henry V decides to wage war and claim the throne across the Channel. But Henry’s charm only distracts the soldiers for so long before the dire stakes of their task call into question the King’s true motives and direction. Resonating across the centuries—wherever there may be a kingdom for a stage, and royalty to act—Shakespeare’s drama about invasion, ego and leadership, delves into history’s thorniest questions: What makes a person worthy of wearing the crown, and what do they owe the people they lead?

Seating is limited so please RSVP to vivian.jett@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.

Native American footpath, Dutch farm road, and site of NYC’s first free Black settlement, the Bowery stretches 1.25 miles from Chatham Square to Cooper Square. It was an early hub for the working class, gangs, gays, and immigrants. It has seminal links to dance, theater, baseball, streetcars, modern tattooing, Stephen Foster, Irving Berlin, Abe Lincoln, and Harry Houdini. In the 20th century, it helped launch Abstract Expressionism, Beat Literature, and punk rock. It is one of NYC’s most architecturally diverse streets, home to its oldest brick house and more. Now, it’s one of America’s most endangered historic streetscapes.

Program includes an illustrated talk by David Mulkins, vintage songs by Poor Baby Bree, and an interview with architectural historian Kerri Culhane, celebrating 5 years of the Bowery’s listing on the National Register of Historic Places

Please note: Reservations are required.

Co-sponsored by the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, Bowery Alliance of Neighbors, and The Cooper Union.

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.

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 workouts, 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.

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.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions. Saturday morning walks begin at 8:30 a.m.

The Bronx and La Villette are two very similar areas in the cities of New York City and Paris. Considered for a long time as dangerous areas, they are becoming very fashionable neighborhoods, where artists and families live. Their configuration has changed so much that now the two neighborhoods are literally the opposite of what they used to be.

The aim of the project The Bronx - La Villette is to give value to the work that has gone into these areas, in spite of the misconceptions people may have about them, and to highlight the diversity of these neighborhoods by showing everyday people from a local’s perspective.

Matteo Pellegrinuzzi is a photographer/cinematographer. He has been living in Paris for the past ten years, working between Paris and Italy on social issues. He studied the History of Cinema at the University of Pavia in Italy. Mr. Pellegrinuzzi has contributed to the making of many movies as a camera man and cinematographer since 2005, but photography is still his first love. His visit to the Bronx inspired this exhibition.

The tension between mankind and Mother Nature has long been a disturbing battleground. There is a tendency to level the ground and bulldoze over anything in our way—often realizing after the fact that we built too big, too bold, and too quickly.

In “Natural Impact,” the new exhibit on view at NYC Parks’ Arsenal Gallery in Central Park, visual artists highlight the ingenuity and absurdity of this cycle through their work. Artists look at how nature sneaks back into our precisely constructed world and either softens the edges, or abruptly overwhelms them.

Curated by D. Dominick Lombardi, “Natural Impact” features a variety of mediums including painting, screenprints, and sculpture, from artists Tim Daly, Lina Puerta, Brant Moorefield, Cecilia Whittaker Doe, Dominick Rapone, and Jodie Mim Goodnough.

This exhibition is FREE and open to the public. For more information, please call (212) 360-8163.

Women’s Suffrage and New York City: A Centennial Celebration

In celebration of the 100 years New York State signed women’s suffrage into law, three years before the United States passed the 19th Amendment, The Society will showcase a marvelous collection on the subject.

Bronx Expo – The Starlight Park Story

Starlight Park originally opened as The Bronx International Exposition of Science, Arts and Industries in 1918. A world’s fair for The Bronx, the idea became unpopular, prompting developers to convert the site into an amusement park. Starlight Park soon became an epicenter of family fun and outdoor recreation for all Bronxites.

This event is free to the public and all are welcome. We hope to see you there.

Join NYC Parks for a discussion with artists Tim Daly, Cecilia Whittaker Doe, Brant Moorefield, and Lina Puerta, moderated by curator D. Dominick Lombardi.

The tension between mankind and Mother Nature has long been a disturbing battleground. There is a tendency to level the ground and bulldoze over anything in our way—often realizing after the fact that we built too big, too bold, and too quickly. In “Natural Impact,” the new exhibit on view at NYC Parks’ Arsenal Gallery in Central Park, visual artists highlight the ingenuity and absurdity of this cycle through their work. Artists look at how nature sneaks back into our precisely constructed world and either softens the edges, or abruptly overwhelms them. Curated by D. Dominick Lombardi, “Natural Impact” features a variety of mediums including painting, screenprints, and sculpture, from artists Tim Daly, Lina Puerta, Brant Moorefield, Cecilia Whittaker Doe, Dominick Rapone, and Jodie Mim Goodnough.

The tension between mankind and Mother Nature has long been a disturbing battleground. There is a tendency to level the ground and bulldoze over anything in our way—often realizing after the fact that we built too big, too bold, and too quickly.

The Bronx and La Villette are two very similar areas in the cities of New York City and Paris. Considered for a long time as dangerous areas, they are becoming very fashionable neighborhoods, where artists and families live. Their configuration has changed so much that now the two neighborhoods are literally the opposite of what they used to be.

The aim of the project The Bronx - La Villette is to give value to the work that has gone into these areas, in spite of the misconceptions people may have about them, and to highlight the diversity of these neighborhoods by showing everyday people from a local’s perspective.

Matteo Pellegrinuzzi is a photographer/cinematographer. He has been living in Paris for the past ten years, working between Paris and Italy on social issues. He studied the History of Cinema at the University of Pavia in Italy. Mr. Pellegrinuzzi has contributed to the making of many movies as a camera man and cinematographer since 2005, but photography is still his first love. His visit to the Bronx inspired this exhibition.

Calling all park lovers! This spring, the New York Junior League's Playground Improvement Project committee ("PIP") invites you to join them in rolling up your sleeves to help revitalize Corlears Hook Park!

Throughout five weekends in April and May New York Junior League volunteers and community volunteers will spend a day in the park (rain or shine) gardening, landscaping, painting, and completing other tasks to help spruce up this highly-used space. All volunteers will be provided with breakfast, lunch, and a t-shirt.

Registration
All participants (ages 16 and older) must register in advance at nyjl.org/playground. Registration closes when capacity is reached or the Wednesday prior to that weekend's park days.

About the New York Junior League Playground Improvement Project
For more than 25 years, the Playground Improvement Project (PIP) has been a New York Junior League signature community project. Our volunteers create safe, beautiful, well-organized, and educational play spaces for children and other members of the New York City community. PIP focuses on sites and parks that need major renovation and have the greatest impact on the surrounding community. Weekend cleanup days include landscaping and repairing the parks. PIP works with over 700 volunteers each season to help improve the park and make a positive impact on the community.

Please reach out to playground@nyjl.org with any questions or if you are interested in making a donation to this cause.

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.

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.

Exercising with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestow health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors 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. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

The aim of the project The Bronx - La Villette is to give value to the work that has gone into these areas, in spite of the misconceptions people may have about them, and to highlight the diversity of these neighborhoods by showing everyday people from a local’s perspective.

Matteo Pellegrinuzzi is a photographer/cinematographer. He has been living in Paris for the past ten years, working between Paris and Italy on social issues. He studied the History of Cinema at the University of Pavia in Italy. Mr. Pellegrinuzzi has contributed to the making of many movies as a camera man and cinematographer since 2005, but photography is still his first love. His visit to the Bronx inspired this exhibition.

Learn how to make a little compost go a long way! We’ll introduce you to the many easy ways to support soil life and plant health with compost. Spring is a great time to jump start soil activity with an injection of microorganisms that build soil structure and convert locked soil nutrients into plant-accessible food. You will walk away confident in your ability to make and apply a simple compost extract solution with just a handful of compost.

Registration is requested

The NYC Compost Project, created by the NYC Department of Sanitation (DSNY) in 1993, works to rebuild NYC’s soils by providing New Yorkers with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities they need to make and use compost locally. NYC Compost Project programs are implemented by DSNY-funded teams at seven host organizations, including Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Big Reuse, Earth Matter NY, Lower East Side Ecology Center, Queens Botanical Garden, Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden, and The New York Botanical Garden.

It is said that the Internet is making the world a smaller place, connecting people and places that were once hugely separated by many miles and mindsets. However, the world has been getting “smaller” for years — in large part due to immigration and the free flow of ideas that come with it.

Now on view at the Conference House Park visitor center and at the Biddle House in Conference House Park, this exhibit highlights narratives of important pioneers in the fields of maritime navigation and communication so people today can understand how our ancestors started making the world “smaller” slowly but surely over centuries by learning how to travel vast oceans. The exhibit also includes a selection of devices, navigational maps and prints from the Museum of Maritime Navigation and Communication (located in Rosebank, S.I.), devoted to preserving and displaying devices and equipment that were used over the years to navigate waters worldwide. This exhibit also includes a working model of a dry dock.

Obie Award-winning director Robert O’Hara (Bootycandy, The Brother/Sister Plays (Part 2) brings a warring king and his band of brothers to communities all across New York with Mobile Unit’s spring production of Henry V.

Insulted by the regent of France, Britain’s King Henry V decides to wage war and claim the throne across the Channel. But Henry’s charm only distracts the soldiers for so long before the dire stakes of their task call into question the King’s true motives and direction. Resonating across the centuries—wherever there may be a kingdom for a stage, and royalty to act—Shakespeare’s drama about invasion, ego and leadership, delves into history’s thorniest questions: What makes a person worthy of wearing the crown, and what do they owe the people they lead?
