What is kayak polo? It’s a mix of basketball, water polo, and kayaking and a whole lot of fun. They've got the equipment (kayaks, vests, helmets, paddles), you bring the body, enthusiasm, and sportsmanship (shorts/sandals, too). Your level of experience doesn’t matter. They are limited to 15 participants per game, so reserve your spot for the game at 11 am. They’ll put you in a team and give you a vest number on a first-come first-served basis. Dedicated players and volunteers, though, will end up being teachers to others. They focus on individual attention and kayak mentoring, and offer the best free kayak learning experience you can get in NYC. Please arrive at least 30 minutes before game time to be donned with vest, helmet, paddle, and kayak.  Sundays, June 4 - September 24, 2017

Brave New World Repertory Theatre presents The Plantation, set in 1870 Virginia after emancipation, but before the onset of Jim Crow. The Plantation re-imagines The Cherry Orchard to tell a post-Civil War story about tectonic shifts in social status of black and white Americans during the period after the war when Southern aristocracy was brought to its knees. Chekhov’s Russian serfs become American freed men and women in this immersive and emotionally charged production.

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. Tour takes place Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Known as America's first suburb, Brooklyn Heights is truly a gem. Travel and Leisure named it one of America's top 10 most beautiful neighborhoods, and its beauty is rivaled only by its place in American history. These quaint, tree-lined streets have been the sites of Revolutionary War battles, abolitionist activism and have inspired numerous novelists. Visit a stop on the Underground Railroad, or the home of Truman Capote, where he penned Breakfast at Tiffany's and where Jackie Robinson signed with the Dodgers.

A lone merchant, Anna Fierling, (played here by three actors) tries to achieve the irreconcilable aims of making money and keeping her children alive during the nightmare of the Thirty Years War. Bertolt Brecht's masterpiece of silence and survival seems only to have grown in stature since its premiere in 1941 as we consider the recent ravages of wars still plaguing the planet. This version by David Hare first premiered at The National Theatre in London in 1995. It features new original music composed for this student production by Matthew Dean Marsh.

“His story broke my world view wide open. He was a kid my age, working with Cesar Chavez to win better conditions for his family of itinerant farm workers.” Before that moment, storyteller Norah Dooley believed that every promise of our “exceptional” US democracy was a common reality. She hopes her stories about her arrest as a supporter of Chavez’s United Farm Workers, her civil-disobedience last summer for obstructing construction of a fossil-fuel pipeline - and many a “just cause” in between - will help others think of ways to make the dream of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” a reality for all people.

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.
