Many New Yorkers are unaware of the 350 species of wild birds—almost a third of all bird species in North America—that live in or pass through New York City each year. Artist Alan Messer skillfully captures many, from exquisite migrating blackburnian warblers in Central Park’s ramble to a Northern Harrier scanning the vast marshes of Jamaica Bay. Conserving Our City of Nature: The Artwork of Alan Messer presented by NYC Audubon reveals over 30 of Messer’s detailed paintings, illustrations, and field sketches of New York City's avian wildlife and habitats, offering a view of NYC Audubon's conservation mission through an artistic eye.

NYC Parks is pleased to present the exhibition: “Native Ensemble: Artists Chronicle Staten Island’s Natural Spaces”, featuring local Staten Island artists that will run from February 13 – March 29, 2015, with an opening reception on Thursday, February 12th from 7-9 p.m. in the Lenape Gallery at the Conference House Park Visitor Center. The exhibition is curated by Sarah Yuster.

The eight artists featured in the show: David DiLillo, Ann Marie McDonnell, Michael McWeeney, Gail Middleton, Bill Murphy, Kristi Pfister, Melissa West and Sarah Yuster will present inspired 2-D and 3-D works created in a variety of art mediums that explore Staten Island’s natural elements and open spaces in conventional and unconventional techniques.

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: this event has been cancelled.

The Arts, Culture & Fun series presents The Lives of Hamilton Fish.

- Film Screening March 28, 2015

- Art Exhibit March 2 - 31, 2015

PLEASE BE ADVISED: This screening is recommended for adults only. The film contains mature subject matter not suitable for children.

On January 16, 1936 the deaths of two famous men were printed on the front page of the Peekskill Evening Star. The two men shared the name Hamilton Fish. One was a notorious killer Hamilton "Albert" Fish and the other, Hamilton Fish II, a beloved statesman. This coincidence was discovered by artist Rachel Mason who was inspired to create an opera and feature film called The Lives of Hamilton Fish.

Scenes in the film were shot at historic sites in New York State and amazingly, The Hamilton Fish Recreation Center was completed in 1936, the same year that the two men died. To coincide with the film's New York City debut which will happen in March 2015, The Hamilton Fish Recreation Center will present a special exhibition of Mason's storyboard sketches, props, paintings and research.

In addition to the film screening, the center will host an art exhibition on weekdays and Saturdays through the month of March.

The Arts, Culture & Fun series presents The Lives of Hamilton Fish.

- Art Exhibit March 2 - 31, 2015

- Film Screening March 28, 2015

On January 16, 1936 the deaths of two famous men were printed on the front page of the Peekskill Evening Star. The two men shared the name Hamilton Fish. One was a notorious killer Hamilton "Albert" Fish and the other, Hamilton Fish II, a beloved statesman. This coincidence was discovered by artist Rachel Mason who was inspired to create an opera and feature film called The Lives of Hamilton Fish.

Scenes in the film were shot at historic sites in New York State and amazingly, The Hamilton Fish Recreation Center was completed in 1936, the same year that the two men died. To coincide with the film's New York City debut which will happen in March 2015, The Hamilton Fish Recreation Center will present a special exhibition of Mason's storyboard sketches, props, paintings and research.

In addition to the exhibition, the center will host a screening on Saturday, March 28 at 3:00 p.m.

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. Saturday morning walks begin at 8:30 a.m.

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. Saturday morning walks begin at 8:30 a.m.

Conserving Our City of Nature: The Artwork of Alan Messer presented by NYC Audubon reveals over 30 of Messer’s detailed paintings, illustrations, and field sketches of New York City's avian wildlife and habitats, offering a view of NYC Audubon's conservation mission through an artistic eye.
