Join us this summer for special movie screenings of Ingmar Bergman films, part of a worldwide celebration to mark the 100-year anniversary of the birth of renowned director and writer Ingmar Bergman (1918 - 2007).

Seventh Seal
Disillusioned and exhausted after a decade of battling in the Crusades, a knight (Max von Sydow) encounters Death on a desolate beach and challenges him to a fateful game of chess. Much studied, imitated, even parodied, but never outdone, Bergman’s stunning allegory of man’s search for meaning, The Seventh Seal (Det sjunde inseglet), was one of the benchmark foreign imports of America’s 1950s art-house heyday, pushing cinema’s boundaries and ushering in a new era of moviegoing.

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.

Join NYC Parks for the closing event of the public artwork LINOUQ by Capucine Bourcart. From 2008 to 2012, Capucine Bourcart walked every street in Manhattan, from State Street to 220th Street, taking photographic details of walls along her route. This collection of photographs was used to create a photo-assemblage made of 4,170 metal squares that has hung from a chain link fence in a design inspired by Native Americans, the island’s first inhabitants.

The closing will feature a performance by Delwin Fiddler, Jr. of Lakota Performing Arts Program, with Native American flute, grass dance, and double beat.

This exhibition is made possible by the Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant, which supports the creation of artworks by New York City-based emerging artists at 10 parks that are highly visible, but underserved by cultural programming. The UNIQLO grant program will transform these locations into engaging art destinations with a series of rotating exhibitions and community events through 2019.

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.

Part of the Wilder LIC Group Exhibition, join artists Thomas Choinacky and Christopher Kennedy for a walking tour of Long Island City’s overlooked green spaces and marginal ecologies. Starting at the Windmill Community Garden, we’ll begin to observe, engage with, and map nearby vacant lots, tree pits, sidewalk cracks and highway medians. Together we’ll learn how to identify a range of spontaneous urban plants (aka weeds) and experiment with forms of movement and dance to engage with each weedy space and territory. Along the way we’ll also consider how the language we use to classify these organisms as “exotic” and “alien” has troubling parallels to policies and practices used to marginalize immigrant communities. Despite their status as invasive or dangerous, these plants have immense value and can teach us about climate change adaptation and how to survive NYC’s harsh urban conditions. By the end of the workshop we hope to develop ideas for how to map multispecies life in LIC, and a new understanding of what constitutes a so-called green space or landscape in NYC.

The workshop is open to all, no prior knowledge needed! We encourage you to wear clothing you can move in, and don’t mind getting a little dirty.
