No experience is necessary though rowing does require some physical dexterity. 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 built on site. The rows last, depending on river conditions and crew experience, between one and three hours. Please arrive on-time as the crews will be assigned before 1PM. Bring extra water, a hat, and sunscreen as you will be rowing outdoors in the hot sun. 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. Every Sunday from June 10-October 21, 2018.

Artist Erwin Wurm has transformed a vintage Volkswagen Microbus into an overstuffed food truck serving free dogs! It's an absurd, yet approachable art experience that will encourage visitors to rethink the fundamental definitions of sculpture. Wurm's choice of the hot dog hints at the gastronomic connections between the City’s most iconic street food and his Austrian homeland, while he considers the act of eating to be an additive sculptural process in its own right.

From the beatnik riots to the summer of love, NYC’s Greenwich Village was the epicenter of a revolutionary movement in the history of American music. A new wave of writers and performers, inspired by the folk revival of the late fifties, created introspective, socially-aware, deeply personal songs that deserve to be considered as a key part of the American Songbook alongside the pop songs being written uptown. These writers – Bob Dylan, Tim Hardin, Janis Ian, Fred Neil and Phil Ochs, to name just a few – changed the “folk” repertoire from traditional songs to songs sprung from personal, contemporary experience, as well as from the headlines. This freewheeling concert, hosted by Richard Barone, who pays tribute to that exciting era on his recent album Sorrows and Promises, celebrates the lasting legacy of that pivotal decade along with an eclectic roster of artists from then and now performing songs that still resonate today. FEATURED PERFORMERS: Richard Barone (host/MC) Jesse Colin Young (of The Youngbloods) Melanie José Feliciano Maria Muldaur Jenni Muldaur Marshall Crenshaw Jeffrey Gaines Nellie McKay David Amram Happy Traum The Kennedys Tammy Faye Starlite Anthony DeCurtis (Rolling Stone editor) Cindy Lee Berryhill Steve Addabbo Joe McGinty Jeordie More to be announced…

In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” This tour repeats every Monday.

In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” This tour repeats every Monday.

With apologies to Mary Harron's American Psycho, this adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' sophomore novel is, for our money, the best example of how to bring the divisive author's work to the screen. Taking the campus debauchery out of the mid-1980s and into the early 2000s is a bold move, but Avary's frenetic direction and strong performances from the cast make it work. Director Roger Avary.

In 19th century disease-riddled New York City, those who could afford to began seeking the restorative powers of nature. Come summer, the elite took off for Ballston, Saratoga Springs, and Niagara Falls in search of the springs’ curative properties, and to get away from the heat and illness that plagued the city. But with the expansion of railroads, the rising middle class followed suit, causing the elite to head yet farther afield, and spark the travel economies of Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.  Ian Fowler, Geospatial Librarian and Map Curator, shares atlases and maps from the Library’s Maps Division that guided tourists to the respite they sought. Learn about and see rare materials including:  Beers’ “Combination Atlas of Saratoga and Ballston”  19th century maps of the “pleasure routes” to Saratoga, Lake George, Adirondacks and the White Mountains   A disease map of the port and vicinity of New York that accompanied a report on yellow fever by the physician in chief at the Marine Hospital on Staten Island.

The Whitney's new exhibition  is the first major presentation of the work of Wojnarowicz in more than a decade. American painter David Wojnarowicz (1954-1991) came to prominence in the East Village art world of the '80s, actively embracing all media and forging an expansive range of fiercely political, richly imagined, and highly personal work. He was 37 when he died from AIDS-related complications.

A deeply felt Mood Album” - Jazzthing, Germany  "A likably suave jazz singer...” - New York Times  “One of the most important artists today” - La Jornada, Jalisco, Mexico "Kaestli introduces things with an angular original, intelligently designed and tuneful. He finds a tense balance between innocent sweetness and the erotic that makes this reimagining achingly compelling" -AllAboutJazz

Kate Battista feels stuck. How did she end up running house and home for her eccentric scientist father and uppity, pretty younger sister Bunny? Plus, she’s always in trouble at work – her pre-school charges adore her, but their parents don’t always appreciate her unusual opinions and forthright manner. Dr. Battista has other problems. After years out in the academic wilderness, he is on the verge of a breakthrough. His research could help millions. There’s only one problem: his brilliant young lab assistant, Pyotr, is about to be deported. And without Pyotr, all would be lost. Pulitzer Prize winning Anne Tyler's “Vinegar Girl” is a retelling of “The Taming of the Shrew.” She has published 20 novels, the best known of which are Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant (1982), The Accidental Tourist (1985), and Breathing Lessons (1988).

In From Selma to Moscow, Sarah B. Snyder shows how domestic social movements spurred a form of activism that ultimately led to legislation to curb military and economic assistance to repressive governments, created institutions to monitor human rights internationally, and enshrined these values in U.S. foreign policy for years to come. Snyder examines the American response to repression in the Soviet Union, racial discrimination in Southern Rhodesia, authoritarianism in South Korea, and coups in Greece and Chile, providing lessons for current and future humanitarian and foreign policy crises. She will be in conversation with Craig Daigle, specialist on U.S.-Middle East relations during the Cold War at the City College of New York, with Q&A to follow.

At the height of the AIDS epidemic, artist, writer, and activist David Wojnarowicz (1954–1992) began keeping audio journals, returning to a practice he'd begun in his youth. David Velasco's Weight of the Earth: The Tape Journals of David Wojnarowicz presents transcripts of these tapes, documenting Wojnarowicz's turbulent attempts to understand his anxieties and passions, and tracking his thoughts as they develop in real time. By turns despairing, funny, exalted, and angry, this volume covers a period largely missing from Wojnarowicz's written journals, providing a new record of a singular American voice.

The exhibition traces her development from schoolgirl projects to highly accomplished renderings of the natural scenery of the Connecticut River Valley used in her husband’s many geology publications.

The now-classic memoir that shocked, outraged, and ultimately changed the way America looked at the civil rights movement and the black experience. By turns shocking and lyrical, unblinking and raw, the searingly honest memoirs of Eldridge Cleaver are a testament to his unique place in American history. Cleaver writes in Soul on Ice, "I'm perfectly aware that I'm in prison, that I'm a Negro, that I've been a rapist, and that I have a Higher Uneducation." What Cleaver shows the readers, on the pages of this now classic autobiography, is how much he was a man. Eldridge Cleaver wrote Soul on Ice, a best-selling collection of essays about his time in prison, and was the minister of information for the Black Panthers. Please read the book before attending the book discussion.

An exhibition consisting of photographs by German photographer Wilhelm von Gloeden (1856-1931). Throughout Von Gloeden’s career, he captured pastoral nudes of young men in Sicily. Upon his 1877 arrival to Taormina, he saw young men as vestiges of a Greco-Roman golden age when male homoeroticism was relatively tolerated. Inspired by the liberalism and Arcadian landscapes he saw in Sicily, Von Gloeden reappropriated classical culture through his nude sitters, accessorizing them with Greco-Roman motifs of skimpy togas, olive wreaths, and amphorae.

One hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises. 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 workouts, 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. 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 Saturday.

Take this summer's coolest walking tour with Tompkins Square Library manager Corinne Neary and street photographer Michael Paul. Once the most densely crowded district in America, the East Village started as a true melting pot of immigrants. It was New York City's first racially integrated neighborhood. Eastern European Jews, Germans, Italians, Irish, Greeks, Hungarians, Poles, Russians, Ukrainians, Puerto Ricans, Muslims, Indians, Koreans and Dominicans all made a new life here. Tompkins Square Park is a place where different cultures share their heritage: art, dance, food, fashion and music. After the Civil War, Tompkins Square Park was the only major open space for immigrants to gather and relax on the east side of Manhattan between Union Square and City Hall.

Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming. Gillian Flynn has published three novels, Sharp Objects, Dark Places, and Gone Girl, all three of which have been adapted for film or television. She was formerly a television critic for Entertainment Weekly
