Doctors, judges, and other experts typically rely on experience and intuition rather than statistical models when making decisions, often at the cost of significantly worse outcomes. Ravi Shroff of NYU presents a simple and intuitive strategy for creating statistically informed decision rules that are easy to apply, easy to understand, and perform on par with state-of-the art machine learning methods in many settings. He'll illustrate these rules with two applications to the criminal justice system: investigatory stop decisions and pretrial detention decisions.

Monolingual, monolithic English is an issue of the past. This collection, by using cinema, poetry, art, and novels, demonstrates that English has become the heteroglossic language of immigration—Englishes of exile. By appropriating its plural form we pay respect to all those who have been improving standard English, thus proving that one may be born in a language as well as give birth to a language or add to it one’s own version. The story of the immigrant, refugee, exile, expatriate is everybody’s story, and without migration, we could not evolve our human race.

New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick.

'Let’s start with the end of the world, why don’t we? Get it over with and move on to more interesting things.’ So begins author N.K. Jemisin’s Hugo Award-winning Broken Earth trilogy. At the intersection of speculative sci-fi, Anthropocene scholarship, and critical race studies, Broken Earth trilogy posits an Earth far more seismically and volcanically active than our own, in which civilization rises and falls, social and biological adaptations abound, and social and tectonic rifts drive some apart and bring others together.

It was one of the most prominent chants at the Women’s March in 2017 and 2018, and other demonstrations advocating for human rights, women’s rights, immigration reform, racial equality, LGBTQ rights, reproductive rights, and healthcare reform. Here, “Tell me what democracy looks like,” is our cue for a discussion with Marion Brasch, Zetta Elliott and Siri Hustvedt who will reflect on the current crises that democratic institutions and governments around the world are facing as part of the rise of strong populist movements. They will not only examine the power of everyday citizens to effect change through protest and resistance, but also their individual approaches to activism and how to fortify the democratic principles we rely on.

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 calls into question the King’s true motives and direction. Resonating from 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? 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 the Mobile Unit’s spring production of Henry V.

The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

Doskow’s decade-long photographic series documenting the remaining architecture of international World’s Fairs. These once iconic global attractions have left in their wake some of the most daring and unusual structures on the planet--- the Seattle Space Needle, Paris’s Eiffel Tower, Brussels’ Atomium, New York’s Unisphere---but often there was little planning for how these initially temporary spectacles would last into the future.

It really experiments with the different textures and colors within a string orchestra. It reminds me so much of movie music—no wonder it was used in Master and Commander.” –William McPeters, bass Schubert Symphony No. 8, Unfinished “Even though it is known as “unfinished,” this symphony feels entirely complete to me. It’s personal and romantic, with dramatic passages that interweave with expressive and romantic moments.” –Diego Gabete, violin Prokofiev Romeo and Juliet Suite “This is so fun to play. You’ll really be able to hear the bass trombone and tuba in the Montagues and Capulets.” –Federico Ramos, bass trombone RSVP required. Seats are taken on a first-come, first-served basis.

A renaissance is taking place on the southern tip of Manhattan Island. Since the terrorist attacks of September 11th 2001, a concerted effort has been undertaken to redevelop this part of the city, with the redevelopment of the World Trade Center and the construction of the National September 11th Memorial and Museum. And from twilight into the night is the right time to pay a visit to this part of New York City. From the Memorial to the Woolworth Building, City Hall to the Brooklyn Bridge, some of the your most memorable experiences in the city await you.

Bronx-born conguero Eddie Montalvo started keeping time (i.e. was playing very basic rhythm just hitting the drum on a regular beat in order to keep the rest of the ensemble on time) when he was just five years old eventually backing superstars Celia Cruz, Héctor Lavoe, Willie Colón, and Johnny Pacheco, and in 1979 he became the youngest member of the Fania All-Stars. Montalvo’s most recent, Grammy-nominated solo album Desde Nueva York a Puerto Rico proves that this rhythm prodigy still brings it. He returns with his band for a night of classic salsa.

Featuring: 'Tuned Squared' is a co-production of Composers Concordance and l'Artiste ordinaire. Melissa Grey will direct a performance of Pauline Oliveros's Tuning Meditation (1971), a vocal improvisation beginning with a single pitch, at the site of Max Neuhaus's sound installation Times Square (1977). The installation exposes a rich, harmonic sound texture of the resonance of the Square's underground tunnel junction, which would otherwise remain unheard.

Pauline Oliveros’s Tuning Meditation (1971) is a vocal improvisation beginning with a single pitch at the outdoor site of Max Neuhaus’ 1977 sound installation at the Square. The installation exposes a rich sound texture of the resonance of the Square’s underground tunnel junction, which would otherwise remain unheard. By responding to this through voice, as a group, the performers aim to create a participatory, ecstatic experience with and for passers-by through sound. The participats presence and activity will create a two-way conduit, amplifying Neuhaus’s original sound while contributing to the sound of the street. Directed by Melissa Grey. The event is weather permitting.
