Community Rowing events are free sessions that include a basic introduction to rowing for first timers (safety orientation, rowing technique, and terminology) and of course plenty of actual rowing on the Hudson River. The rows take place in five-person wooden rowboats that Village Community Boathouse builds onsite. The rows last, depending on river conditions and rower level experience, between one and three hours. Please arrive on-time. Rowing is weather dependent and will be canceled for high winds, rain, or thunderstorms. All participants must sign a waiver and be able to climb a ladder.

“I have decided to adapt Capital based on Karl Marx’s scenario,” writes Sergei Eisenstein on October 12, 1927. Eisenstein, who revolutionized the language of film with Battleship Potemkin (1926), wants to ‘cinematize’ Marx’s book. The challenge emanating from such a work, Eisenstein believes, will radically transform the history of cinema. But how can one capture money, commodity, profit, and capital on screen, when what is at stake is not content but the abstract forms of all manner of things, human beings, and relationships? Eighty years later, director Alexander Kluge launches an investigation into whether Capital can be adapted at all and commentates on Eisenstein’s monumental scheme in filmic miniatures on Marx’s theory, which, to us, is as near and as far as antiquity. Conversations with Hans Magnus Enzensberger, Boris Groys, Oskar Negt, Werner Schröter, Peter Sloterdijk, and many others, a built-in short film by Tom Tykwer, and an extra with Helge Schneider yield entirely different perspectives of Capital. Kluge’s News from Ideological Antiquity will be shown in full extension and, corresponding with the DVD edition, in three parts: I. Marx and Eisenstein in the Same House II. All Things are Enchanted People III. Paradoxes of the Barter Society 570 min.

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.

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 Mobile Unit’s spring production of Henry V.

Tour |


The skeletal remains of the High Line’s elevated tracks set the perfect scene for a spooky evening. Join Free Tours by Foot for a journey to the creepier side of New York City’s most unique park. On this tour you’ll hear tales of the strange eccentric who lived below the tracks and saved them from demise, the curse of a West Side Cowboy who fell to his death from the elevated track, and the children who haunt the street formerly known as Death Avenue. If the moon hangs right perhaps you’ll witness the spectacle of a ghostly ship floating down the Hudson River; is it the long forgotten crew of Henry Hudson’s Half-Moon warning sailors not to go to sea? Or is it Captain Kidd protecting the treasure he buried on Liberty Island? Venture at your own risk through the dark side of High Line.

Author Reading |


Junk is the third book in Tommy Pico’s “Teebs” trilogy. It’s been named one of NPR’s most anticipated books of 2018 and hailed by Publisher’s Weekly as “build[ing] into an apocalyptic crescendo via Pico’s propulsive fervor, junk piling on junk.” Instead of a typical reading, Pico has asked six cultural and literary luminaries to bring a piece of junk from home and tell its story, old-school show-and-tell style: + Nichole Perkins + Matt Ortile + Bukem Reitmayer + Chris Campanioni + Natalie Eilbert + Max Steele
