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. Led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Every Tuesday and Thursday

Performance | Performance for One: Slippery Memory


Performance for One is a one-on-one performance event written and directed by Edward Einhorn, presented in 10-minute slots at venues across Manhattan. The performance is about memory, but even more so, it is about relationship between performer, audience member, and author. What is the responsibility of the audience member, and how is it felt differently when there is only one audience member? Who is the story teller, the author or the performer? What happens to a memory that two people share after one of those people is gone? Presented by Untitled Theater Company.

Lecture | Trapped in the Maze: Family Multi-Institutional Involvement, Poverty, and Inequality


Family multi-institutional involvement and its influence on social inequality are relatively understudied phenomena. Using qualitative data from 2011-2017 on 63 primarily low-income families in NYC, this project analyzes how families’ experiences in social control institutions (e.g., courts, hospitals, child welfare, public assistance, schools) exacerbate inequality. Analyzing these experiences requires extending previous conceptualizations of family institutional involvement beyond one generation or household.  Speaker Leslie Paik is an associate professor of sociology at The City College of New York.

Author Reading | The Hadley Academy for the Improbably Gifted: Whisked Away


Jack Carlson is suffering through another awkward school day when he suddenly finds himself transported to the Hadley Academy, a secret institution that tracks teens with unlikely gifts and trains them to protect the world from a secret squad of killers. But Jack isn’t the only one who doesn’t know what he’s doing at Hadley. Despite indications that he is the one prophesied to end the ancient Reaper War, Jack appears to have no extraordinary abilities. Author Conor Grennan used to live in Kathmandu, Nepal, where he rescued trafficked children and reunited them with their families in remote mountain villages. He wrote a book about those adventures called Little Princes: One Man’s Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal.
