The 12th Annual World Science Festival in NYC
May 22 – Jun 2 all-day

The 12th Annual World Science Festival

May 22 – June 2, 2019

Announces 2019 Programming

And Invites New Yorkers To

‘Awaken Their Inner Genius’

New York, NY (May 2, 2019) – The World Science Festival has unveiled its 2019 program lineup, which presents many of the world’s leading scientists, pioneers, artists, and influential thinkers – bringing science to life in imaginative ways throughout the five boroughs of New York City.

The Festival, beginning Wednesday, May 22nd, celebrates science with original programming that includes discourse, debate, theatre, film, workshops, and interactive installations as well as events for young innovators, scientists-in-the-making, and families. The Festival transforms the city and brings the world’s leading scientists to advance our understanding and appreciation of everything from quarks to the cosmos.

Tracy DayCo-Founder and CEO of the World Science Festival, has long been an advocate of bringing significant scientific discussions to wider audiences. “We are thrilled to offer an exciting line-up of programming, with leaders in their fields engaging the public in conversations that encourage all to be champions of scientific truth and human curiosity.”

“This year we are celebrating the anniversaries of both the confirmation of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity and also the Apollo moon landing, two gratifying moments of insight and exploration,” said Columbia University physicist Brian Greene, Co-Founder of the World Science Festival. “These astonishing milestones are an opportunity for us all to recognize the enormous capacity of humankind to achieve the seemingly impossible.”

Kicking off this year’s festivities, The World Science Festival Gala will be held on May 22nd, 2019, featuring an original production of Light Falls: Space, Time, and an Obsession of Einstein, which tells the dramatic story of Einstein’s electrifying discovery of the General Theory of Relativity. The production, narrated by Brian Greene, features an all-Broadway cast, innovative 3D visuals designed by the Tony Award-winning 59 Productions (“An American in Paris”), and an original score by Jeff Beal (“House of Cards”). Light Falls premieres nationwide Wednesday, May 29—the 100th anniversary to the day of Einstein’s Theory being confirmed through astronomical observations—at 10/9c on PBS (check local listings), pbs.org/lightfalls and the PBS Video app.

Now in its 12th year, the World Science Festival continues to bring the power of science to new audiences. This year’s programming will feature some of the most brilliant scientists, seasoned explorers, and influential performers, including Apollo astronaut Michael Collins, inventor of CRISPR Jennifer Doudna, chess icon Garry Kasparov, Grammy-winning composer Eric Whitacre, commander of the International Space Station Scott Kelly, actress and activist Marlee Matlin, renowned AI researcher Yann LeCun, and more.

A FEW HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE MAIN STAGE WILL INCLUDE:

Rethinking Thinking: How Intelligent Are Other Animals?: Intelligence was once thought to be uniquely human, but what is intelligence? Why do some species get an extra dose? And just how special are humans, really? Participants include: biologist Simon Garnier, neuroscientist Suzana Herculano-Houzel, and marine mammalogist Denise Herzing. Author, journalist, and comedian Faith Salie will moderate.

Physics in the Dark: Searching for the Universe’s Missing Matter: For nearly a century, evidence has mounted that the gravitational pull necessary to keep clusters of galaxies intact, as well as stars within galaxies from flying apart, requires far more matter than we can see. Problem is, such “dark matter” has also eluded one specially designed detector after another. Which raises the big question: What if we have failed to find dark matter because it isn’t there? Participants include: physicist Mariangela Lisanti, astrophysicist Joseph Silk, physicist Erik Verlinde, and astrophysicist Risa Wechsler. Physicist and author Brian Greene will moderate.

The Richness of Time: Time on Earth elapses at a uniform rate, so why does the human experience of time seem so varied? How do various neurological afflictions change the perception of time? And underneath it all, how does human language impact our ability to think about time and fully experience its rich and mysterious contours? Participants include: cognitive scientist Lera Boroditsky and neuroscientist Dean Buonomano. Physicist and author Brian Greene will moderate.

Loose Ends: String Theory and the Quest for the Ultimate TheoryThirty-five years ago string theory took physics by storm, promising the coveted unified theory of nature’s forces that Einstein valiantly sought but never found. In the intervening decades, string theory has brought a collection of mind-boggling possibilities into the lexicon of mainstream thinking—extra dimensions of space, holographic worlds, and multiple universes. Some researchers view these developments as symptoms of string theory having lost its way. Others argue that string theory, although very much still a work in progress, is revealing stunning new qualities of reality. Participants include: physicists Lara AndersonMichael DineMarcelo Gleiser, and Andrew Strominger. Physicist and author Brian Greene will moderate.

Revealing the Mind: The Promise of Psychedelics: Nearly every culture throughout history has used chemicals that alter consciousness for spiritual exploration. In the 20th century these drugs caught the attention of scientists. Join scientists and “psychonauts” who are now picking up where research left off 50 years ago, experimenting with LSD and other psychedelics to heal—and reveal—the mind. Participants include: psychologist Alison Gopnik, addiction psychiatrist Stephen Ross, and neuroscientist Anil Seth.

Making Room for Machines: Getting Ready for AGI: The “thinking machines” that Alan Turing postulated in 1950 have already vaulted beyond us in specific arenas like chess and Jeopardy. But if we achieve artificial general intelligence, it may take only seconds for our creation to surpass us in every other arena as well. Will humans fight to restrain such super intelligence, or join forces, perhaps bringing about a new utopia? Or, will we simply and quietly become irrelevant? Participants include: writer, activist, and chess champion Garry Kasparov, computer scientist Yann LeCun, roboticist Hod Lipson, and AI ethicist Shannon Vallor.

The Right Stuff: What It Takes to Boldly GoFifty years ago, as Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin bounced on the moon’s surface below, Apollo 11 Command Module Pilot Michael Collins briefly disappeared behind the lunar disk, becoming the first person to experience space entirely alone. As we set our sights on the stars, space travelers will need to cope with ever longer stretches in the lonely environs of the cosmos. What will that take? How will it affect who we are? Participants include: astronaut Michael Collins, astronaut Scott Kelly, and astronaut Leland Melvin. Journalist and producer Miles O’Brien will moderate.

FUN, FASCINATING, AND FREE ACTIVITIES FOR ALL AGES WILL INCLUDE:

Saturday Night Lights: Stargazing in Brooklyn Bridge Park: Immerse yourself in stargazing and storytelling. First, step up to a professional telescope for an intimate look at the Moon, Jupiter, and beyond. Then, sit on the grass for “Deep Field: The Impossible Magnitude of our Universe,” created by Grammy® Award-winning composer Eric Whitacre. This short film experience reveals the galaxy from the perspective of the Hubble Space Telescope as 100 members of the LaGuardia High School Senior Chorus provide a celestial soundscape. Stay for an engaging discussion with astrophysicists and the film’s creators.

City of Science: A larger-than-life touring event where the magic of science, technology, engineering, and math collide! Filled with interactive demonstrations, hands-on activities, and engaging exhibitions, this free program unleashes everyone’s inner scientist.

Great Fish Count: From Lemon Creek in Staten Island to the shores of the Bronx River, New York’s waterways are teeming with life—and it’s up to you to find it! Led by  top marine scientists and biologists in 16 sites across New York’s five boroughs, Yonkers, and New Jersey, the Great Fish Count gives attendees of all ages the chance to strap on a pair of waders, cast a net, and discover the underwater world in their own backyard.

Honorees at the 2019 Salute to Freedom Gala at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum

Thursday, May 23, 2019

General Joseph L. Votel, U.S. Army (Ret.); Frank Bisignano, Chairman & Ceo, First Data; and Nasa Trailblazer Margaret Hamilton to be honored at 27th Annual Salute to Freedom Gala at Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum

NEW YORK (May 8, 2019) – The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will honor the contributions of General Joseph L. Votel, United States Army (Ret.); Frank Bisignano,chairman and CEO of First Data; and NASA trailblazer Margaret Hamilton at the 2019 Salute to Freedom gala on Thursday, May 23, aboard the historic aircraft carrier Intrepid.Salute to Freedom recognizes extraordinary leadership and honors the brave men and women who serve in defense of our nation. Cocktails begin at 6:00 p.m.; the dinner and awards program begins at 7:00 p.m.

General Votel will receive the 2019 Intrepid Freedom Award for his distinguished service promoting and defending the values of freedom and democracy as a four star general of the U.S. Army, and for 40 years of service to our nation. General Votel recently retired after serving as the 13th commander of the United States Central Command, which oversees U.S. military operations in parts of Asia and the Middle East.

Mr. Bisignano will receive the 2019 Intrepid Salute Award in honor of his outstanding business and philanthropic achievements, particularly in recognition of his leadership role with First Data Salutes. Through this company-wide military engagement initiative, First Data Salutes provides the military community with career opportunities, best-in-class education resources, and premier business solutions for veteran-owned businesses. Bisignano supports numerous philanthropic organizations, including the Mount Sinai Health System, The Perelman Center for Performing Arts and PENCIL, an organization that brings together business professionals with students and educators.

As the nation commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, the Museum will recognize the pioneering achievements of Ms. Hamilton with the Intrepid Lifetime Achievement Award. As a computer scientist at MIT, Hamilton led the team that developed the navigation and guidance software that was instrumental in Apollo 11’s success. She previously was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Barack Obama for her contributions. Hamilton now serves as the CEO of Hamilton Technologies, Inc., a company she founded.

“We are honored to recognize the accomplishments of three remarkable individuals whose efforts to advance our nation and make positive change in the world have exceeded the call of duty,” said Susan Marenoff-Zausner, president of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. “General Votel’s tireless record of service and leadership to our country is exemplary. Frank Bisignano’s longstanding dedication to education, as well as serving military families and veterans, has impacted countless lives. Margaret Hamilton’s groundbreaking work has taken humanity beyond what was thought possible, and continues to inspire all who walk through the Museum’s doors. We are thrilled to celebrate them and thank them for all they’ve done.”

The Salute to Freedom gala brings together leading members of the business, education, government, military and scientific communities to help support the Museum’s mission. It provides crucial funding for programs and exhibits that explore the intersection of history, science and service, connect new generations of leaders and innovators to our nation’s history and STEAM principles, and create a supportive space for veterans and service members to find community and readjust to civilian life.

Past honorees at the gala include Presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan; heads of state including Margaret Thatcher, Boris Yeltsin and Yitzhak Rabin; Vice President Joe Biden, Senator John McCain and astronaut Scott Kelly.

Todd Crow is a pianist whose artistry has brought him critical superlatives in the U.S. and notably in England – there largely through regular appearances on the BBC. The New York Times has described his playing as “heroic, [showing] endless flair, color and stamina.” The Times of London has praised his performances as “spine-chilling” and “exhilarating,” and The Wall Street Journal said that his playing exhibited “stunning control and a wonderful sense of musical architecture.”

Todd was a member of the Vassar College faculty for 49 years, retiring in June 2018 as the George Sherman Dickinson Professor of Music. The Vassar College Department of Music is presenting Todd Crow in recital at Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall on Thursday, March 23, 2019, at 7:30 pm. His program is a hearty meal of virtuoso pianism: Mendelssohn’s Fantasy in F-sharp minor, Op. 28; Schumann’sKreisleriana, Op. 16; Debussy’s Etude No. 10 “pour les Sonorités opposées”; Three Préludes by Henri Dutilleux; and Bartók’s Dance Suite.

Thomas Sauer, a colleague of Todd Crow’s at Vassar, had this to say: “It was my good fortune to have served on the Vassar piano faculty with Todd Crow for 19 years. He was the kindest, most selfless and generously supportive colleague imaginable, and his personal pianistic standards would be the envy of a performer at any stage of a performing career.”

“Many of his colleagues consider him to be a pianist’s pianist,” wrote the critic Jed Distler on ClassicsToday about Chopin: The Late Mazurkas (MSR, 2018), Crow’s latest in a series of distinguished recordings that have earned him a string of critical acclaim over the years. Two discs in particular of performances recorded for BBC broadcast – Todd Crow: The BBC Recordings, Volume 1 (2010), music of Mendelssohn, Mendelssohn/Liszt, Moscheles, and Schumann; and Volume 2 (2013), piano variations of Brahms and Dvorák – elicited from Fanfare magazine what is perhaps definitive praise for this pianist, calling him “…among the aristocrats of keyboard artists,” and saying this: “Todd Crow is an American treasure. He combines a solid technique and beautiful keyboard touch with complete mastery of the music.”

In recent years he has appeared as soloist with orchestras in the United States, England, Italy, Israel, the Czech Republic, and elsewhere, and in recital or chamber music at the Berlioz/Dutilleux Festival in Manchester, England, Washington’s National Gallery of Art, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, London’s Wigmore Hall, and New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art as well as Avery Fisher Hall and Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center. He has performed frequently with such groups as the Brentano, Borromeo, Composers, Concord, Shanghai, Miami, Daedalus, Jupiter, Miró, Parker, Dover and Escher string quartets, the New York Philharmonic Ensembles, St. Luke’s Chamber Ensemble, and with many eminent soloists including famed jazz clarinetist Benny Goodman.  He made his Carnegie Hall debut as soloist with the American Symphony in 1992 and his London orchestral debut at the Barbican Centre with the London Philharmonic in 1986.  He has been heard on BBC Radio for many years in both live and recorded performances, and on National Public Radio in the USA, as well as many other American radio stations.

Since 1996, he has been music director and pianist of the Mt. Desert Festival of Chamber Music in Northeast Harbor, Maine, now looking forward to its 55th season. In addition to frequent appearances at the Bard Music Festival, he has been heard at the Casals Festival, Music Mountain, Maverick Concerts, and other festivals. His CDs include sonatas of Haydn and Schubert, Liszt’s transcription for piano solo of Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique, works of Sergei Taneyev and Dohnányi, the complete works for cello and piano by Mendelssohn (with cellist Mark Shuman), and Ernst Toch’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with the NDR-Hamburg Symphony Orchestra conducted by Leon Botstein. Released in 2016, a CD entitled Of Love of You–A Tribute to Emery W. Harper features world premiere recordings of new American works for piano, soprano, and bass-baritone by Bolcom, Liebermann, Rands, Stucky, Del Tredici, Wyner, and others. Todd Crow can also be heard on the Albany, ASV, Bridge, First Impression, Golden String, New World, and Toccata Classics labels.

Born in Santa Barbara, California, Todd Crow is an honors graduate of the University of California and The Juilliard School. Among his teachers have been Erno Dániel, Ania Dorfmann, and at the Music Academy of the West, Emanuel Bay. At the age of 13 he was awarded an indefinitely renewable scholarship for the study of music composition by the Epstein Foundation of Chicago, and as a teenager he won prizes for his works including a competition sponsored by the National Society of Arts and Letters.  At age fifteen, he won the Santa Barbara Symphony Young Artists Competition.  He is also editor of the volume Bartók Studies (Detroit, 1976).  In 1986 he received the University of California’s Distinguished Alumni Award. www.toddcrowpiano.com

Governors Island Late Fridays and Saturdays

OH YES!

Fridays and Saturdays
May 24 – August 31, 2019
Open until 10:00 pm

We got the chance to experience late days at the Island last year and so enamored was I with the whole thing that I went two days in a row. Luckily they were absolutely stunning days! You wouldn’t believe how excited I just got when I discovered that, yep, they’re offering this up so early in the season. Had imagined them not doing this until a bit later but we’ll take it!

The Ferry leaves from the historic Battery Maritime Building, located at 10 South Street in Lower Manhattan just north of the Staten Island Ferry. It’s a short and cheap ride across the waters.

If you’re a photographer like yours truly then you’ll really get a kick out of the chance to capture the setting sun as well as the Lower Manhattan skyline during the blue hour and evening. Yes, of course, you can do so on other days when the island’s open to all, but come on! This is a great chance to capture it all under a night sky. I plan to return again, and again and again and again. Will you?

Annual Puerto Rican Day Parade & Cultural Festival – 2019

Un Pueblo, Muchas Voces

The Official National Puerto Rican Day Parade Street Festival

Saturday, May 25, 2019
11:00 am to 5:00 pm

The annual 152nd Street Cultural Festival at Jackson Avenue in the Bronx

62nd Annual Puerto Rican Day Parade

Sunday, June 9, 2019

LA India, Jose Feliciano, Chi Chi Rodríguez, Edgar Martínez, Alberto Carrión, Dagmar Rivera And Ana María Martínez Among Those To Be Honored At The 62nd Annual National Puerto Rican Day Parade

April 30, 2019, San Juan, PR  – At a press conference held in San Juan, Puerto Rico, the National Puerto Rican Day Parade (NPRDP) Board of Directors made additional announcements regarding its plans for the 62nd Annual celebration, including key themes, tributes and an initial list of honorees.  Under the theme, “One People, Many Voices,” the Parade will continue celebrating the best of Puerto Rican art, culture and history, while also highlighting special causes and initiatives to foster economic development and help rebuild Puerto Rico in the post-Hurricane Maria era.

As part of this year’s celebration, the NPRDP will honor two legendary singer/songwriters who have celebrated and helped shape the repertoire of Puerto Rican music for decades. As part of this year’s celebration, the NPRDP will honor the internationally acclaimed 7-time GRAMMY award winner, José Feliciano with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Mr. Feliciano’s music has impacted global culture, with songs like “Feliz Navidad” becoming ranked among the top American holiday classics.  Also honored for Lifetime Achievement is Alberto Carrión, composer of “Amanecer Borincano,” considered by many as a second national hymn in Puerto Rico. This past September 20, Mr. Carrión led the chorus of the University of Puerto Rico in Cayey, performing this iconic song to memorialize the one-year anniversary of Hurricane María’s landfall in Yabucoa, Puerto Rico. Also honored for Lifetime Achievement is Puerto Rico’s “television sweetheart”, Dagmar Rivera, whose distinguished career has spanned four decades and impacted pop culture and entertainment on the Island. Recently, Telemundo dedicated their 65th Anniversary Celebration to Ms. Rivera, in recognition of her prolific and successful career.

The 2019 NPRDP Madrina (Godmother) title goes to Latin GRAMMY Award winning artist, La India.  Born in Rio Piedras, PR, and known as “La Princesa de la Salsa,” La India is credited with top dance hits that span musical genres including Freestyle, Hip-Hop and Reggaetón.  She is best known for her Salsa classics, including Billboard hit “Dicen que soy” and “Vivir lo nuestro,” a duet sung with Marc Anthony. Her contributions to Puerto Rican and Latin music continue to this day, starring in the international tour of the theatrical production, Forever Tango, in 2019.

Joining this year’s honorees is former Major League Baseball legend and newly elected National Baseball Hall of Fame 2019 member, Edgar Martínez,  the 2019 NPRDP All-Star Athlete. Edgar had an impressive career that spanned 18 years with the Seattle Mariners. He is recognized as one of only nine players in Major League history to record at least 300 home runs, 500 double and 1,000 walks while posting a career batting average over .300 and a career on-base percentage over .400.

Taking on the Issue of Human Trafficking

Each year, the Parade Board of Directors selects a cause or issue of importance to the Puerto Rican community to help create awareness and identify solutions.  This year, the NPRDP will raise awareness on the issue of human trafficking by honoring the Ricky Martin Foundation for its work to denounce human trafficking and for its research and community initiatives to educate about its existence.

Human trafficking is one of the most lucrative crimes in the world, impacting an estimated 49.8 million people around the world.  Through its research, the Ricky Martin Foundation is working to shine a spotlight on the existence of this crime and its impact on Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.

A Tribute to Pablo Casals and Puerto Rico’s Legacy in Classical Music

One of the key tributes celebrated by the NPRDP in 2019 will be celebrating the life’s work of the legendary cellist, composer and conductor, Pablo Casals. Born in Catalonia, Spain of a Puerto Rican mother, Casals was known as one of the greatest cellists of his time. He relocated to Puerto Rico, where he established the Casals Festival, in 1955, which continues to be one of the world’s pre-eminent classical music festivals to this day.  He later founded the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra and the Puerto Rico Conservatory of Music, in 1958 and 1959, respectively. Casals was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by John F. Kennedy, in 1963. The Puerto Rico Symphony and Conservatory of Music are celebrating 60 years of continuing Pablo Casal’s legacy by celebrating Puerto Rico’s contribution to classical music and the performing arts, and each institution is being honored in the 2019 Parade.

Also present were the Maestro Maximiano Valdés, Musical Director for the Puerto Rico Symphony, Islaím Rodríguez, Assistant Director for the Corporation for Musical Arts and Jessabet Vivas Capó, Director for Cultural Promotion.  In a note received from Carlos Ruiz, he expressed, “For the Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña and La Orquesta Sinfónica de Puerto Rico, it is an honor to participate for the first time in direct collaboration with the renowned organization of the National Puerto Rican Day Parade  Mr. Carlos R. Ruiz, Executive Director of the Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña, La Corporación de las Artes Musicales and La Orquesta Sinfónica de Puerto Rico. Our Puerto Rican sentiment transcends geographic boundaries, and it is our goal to create strong ties of fraternity and collaboration with our fellow Puerto Ricans residing in the United States. Regardless of where we find ourselves, Puerto Rico will always be felt as one heart.”

As part of the tribute to Puerto Rico’s contributions to the Classical Music and Performing Arts, the NPRDP will honor world-renowned, GRAMMY award-winning soprano and opera singer, Ana María Martínez as Orgullo Puertorriqueño. Born in San Juan and considered to be one of today’s foremost sopranos, Martínez graduated from the Juilliard School of Music and went on to perform with the world’s most elite opera companies, including New York’s Metropolitan Opera, the San Francisco Opera and Lyric Opera Chicago. She regularly performs with the Houston Grand Opera, where she is currently serving as Artistic Advisor. Even with her global fame, Ms. Martínez performs regularly in Puerto Rico, with appearances at the Casals Festival and engagements with the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra; including  a standing ovation at their 60th Anniversary Gala Concert, in November 2018.

Honoring Educators and Librarians

The NPRDP is committed to promoting the pursuit of education through its scholarship program, as well as by recognizing individuals and organizations that have positively impacted the Puerto Rican community in this regard. In 2019, the NPRDP will pay tribute to the posthumous honoree, Pura Belpré, the first Puerto Rican librarian in the New York Library system. Born in Cidra, Puerto Rico, Pura Belpré was an advocate for the Puerto Rican community of Spanish Harlem.  She instituted a bilingual storytelling program for the youth of El Barrio, to continue connecting them with their heritage while improving their English skills. Her groundbreaking work transformed the 115th Street Branch into a cultural center for New York’s Latino Community.

In 2019, the NPRDP is also recognizing the Flamboyán Foundation, whose mission is to implement sustainable solutions so children most impacted by inequity are able to thrive. Founded by Kristin Ehrgood and Vadim Nikitine, and guided by the belief that all children deserve the opportunity to live a fulfilling life, the Flamboyán Foundation works to ensure students most impacted by inequity are prepared to succeed in school and beyond.

The NPRDP honors educators, administrators, academics and other leaders whose life’s work has been dedicated to promoting the education of Puerto Rican and Latino students at the Education Leadership Awards. One of this year’s Education Leadership Honorees is Ana María García Blanco, PhD, Founder & Executive Director at Instituto Nueva Escuela.  Ms. García Blanco’s award-winning work is recognized for having transformed the development of the Montessori Method in Puerto Rico. Also recognized as an Education Leadership Honoree is Jeannette Valdés Morales, an educator with expertise in Special Education and coach on Puerto Rico’s Special Olympics team.

For a third consecutive year, the Parade will award 100 scholarships to exceptional high school seniors and college freshmen, sophomores and juniors of Puerto Rican descent. Each scholarship is in the amount of $2,000 for a total pool of $200,000, a 20-fold increase since 2013.  This year’s applicants represent over 20 states and Puerto Rico.  Scholarship recipients will be announced at the Education Leadership Awards on May 25, in New York City.

Promoting Economic Development

In 2018, the NPRDP paid tribute to several organizations that were helping with the recovery from Hurricane Maria.  The Parade continues that work this year by also recognizing organizations whose work promotes economic development on the Island. As part of this initiative, NPRDP recognizes  Discover Puerto Rico, a newly established private, not for-profit Destination Marketing Organization (DMO) whose mission is to make Puerto Rico visible to the world as a premier travel destination. With the aim of bringing prosperity to the people of Puerto Rico, Discover Puerto Rico promotes the Island’s diversity and uniqueness for leisure and business travel, as well as events. Discover Puerto Rico will have a key role at the NPRDP Gala Fundraiser and at the June 9 Parade on Fifth Avenue.

A Special Recognition for Sports Legends and Rising Stars

The 2019 Parade celebration will honor Puerto Rican athletes that have left their mark on sports history, including legends and rising stars. The NPRDP will honor the legendary 1979 Puerto Rican National Basketball Team that competed against the United States team for the gold medal at the thirteenth Pan-American Games, that year. 2019 marks the 40th anniversary of this historic match-up, and to celebrate this milestone the NPRDP recognizes the film, Nuyorican Básquet, a documentary that tells the dramatic story of this historic moment. Puerto Rico’s 1979 National Basketball Team was comprised of players that were mainly born and/or raised in New York, the film showcases the contributions of Puerto Ricans from the diaspora and the achievements that can be realized when our collective community unites as one.

The NPRDP will also honor the 61 athletes that comprised Team Puerto Rico at the 2019 Special Olympics, held earlier this year in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. These impressive athletes competed across 10 sports earning 55 medals for Puerto Rico, including 16 gold, 17 silver and 22 bronze medals. Team Puerto Rico is an excellent example of Puerto Rican resilience and pursuit of excellence as the Island recovered from the devastating effects of Hurricane María.

Fridays and Saturdays
May 24 – August 31, 2019
Open until 10:00 pm

We got the chance to experience late days at the Island last year and so enamored was I with the whole thing that I went two days in a row. Luckily they were absolutely stunning days! You wouldn’t believe how excited I just got when I discovered that, yep, they’re offering this up so early in the season. Had imagined them not doing this until a bit later but we’ll take it!

The Ferry leaves from the historic Battery Maritime Building, located at 10 South Street in Lower Manhattan just north of the Staten Island Ferry. It’s a short and cheap ride across the waters.

If you’re a photographer like yours truly then you’ll really get a kick out of the chance to capture the setting sun as well as the Lower Manhattan skyline during the blue hour and evening. Yes, of course, you can do so on other days when the island’s open to all, but come on! This is a great chance to capture it all under a night sky. I plan to return again, and again and again and again. Will you?

Monica Weiss, ETHICAL NYC Co-Chair of the Environmental Stewardship Committee, interviews three young, inspiring climate activists:

XIYE BASTIDA spoke about the challenges that youth face because of the climate crisis at the 2018 UN World Urban Forum 9. She received the Spirit of the United Nations Award for her environmental work. A junior at Beacon H.S., Xiye is the leader of the school’s Environmental Club and has worked with Action for Sustainable Development (A4SD) and numerous other climate organizations to communicate the implications of the existing climate crisis, among other issues.

COLLEEN SCHMIDT, an undergraduate studying Environmental Biology, is originally from Bozeman, Montana, where she grew up exploring rivers and mountains, developing a deep love for landscapes and wildlife. Her appreciation for the natural world has only increased through her studies of its complexity, resilience, and interconnectedness. The mission of the Sunrise Movement is the building of “an army of young people to stop climate change and create millions of good jobs in the process” through political action.

ALEXANDRIA VILLASEÑOR, a 7th grader, who — frustrated by the lack of progress of the UN Climate Change Conference in Poland, and inspired by 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, Alexandria — became a national and international organizer for the first-ever global youth climate strike on March 15, 2019, mobilizing nearly 2,000 youths from 123 countries to demand climate action from their world leaders. Alexandria was awarded the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival’s “Disruptor” Award and The Common Good Foundation’s Changemaker Scholarship and is on Politico’s list of the top 100 people influential in climate change policy. Alexandria continues in her role as a prominent climate strike organizer, and is working to bring accurate climate science and climate change education into K-12 schools. This week’s shared charity is Zero Hour, whose mission is to center the voices of diverse youth in the conversation around climate and environmental justice. Zero Hour is a youth-led movement creating entry points, training, and resources for new young activists and organizers (and adults who support their vision) wanting to take concrete action around climate change.

Fleet Week is an amazing opportunity for everyone to come out and support those who serve our country, and get to know more about the sea services.”

The organization offers a special discount code for reduced registration fees for retired and active duty military, simply use code “HERO” when registering.  (Note: Those who register with this code will be required to show valid military ID when picking up their race packet).

On the Festival Main Stage, host Awilda Rodriguez Lora will introduce an eclectic mix of Latinx musical acts, including the Lower East Side’s very own, Son del Monte , led by renowned timablero Manuel Rivera , who will be performing their take on the Cuban charanga. The lineup also includes Puerto Rican pleneros La Maquina Insular , whose lineup features Hector “Tito” Matos and other members of Viento de Agua , a group known for revitalizing the Puerto Rican musical traditions of bomba y plena. Making their Festival debut will be Nuyorican experimental salsa orchestra, Abrazos Army . Rounding out the main stage lineup will be Afro-Cuban dancer Yesenia Selier and Puerto Rican theatre troupe, Y No Había Luz.

Y No Había Luz will also perform as part of the 6th Annual Festival Theater Lab . The family-friendly event will move to the street-level this year as part of the festival’s street vendor fair along Avenue C or what is known as the Loisaida Commercial Corridor (E. 6th Street to E. 12th Street.). After the successful debut of their post-Hurricane play ¡Ay Maria! at last year’s Festival, Puerto Rican/Latin American theatre collective Mezcolanza will again host a series of one-act performances. Plenatoriom , a Puerto Rican plena initiative housed at Loisaida, and the improv comedy troupe Teatro 220 will also perform, followed by the closing Community Pageant.

The free Memorial Day Concert at The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine features Bruckner’s Eighth. “Beauty is what Bruckner is talking about,” says Jaap van Zweden. In this symphony beauty takes many forms: its gradual unfolding, burnished brass sonorities, soaring lyricism, and a triumphant ending. An inspiring, spiritual way to remember those who died while serving in America’s armed forces.

Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis on the day of the performance; ticket distribution will begin at 5:00 PM. The audio of the performance will be broadcast onto the adjacent Pulpit Green, weather permitting.

Green-Wood’s Death Café continues in spring and summer. In a small group, participants will share their thoughts on death and dying in a supportive environment where they can feel comfortable talking about these universal, but rarely discussed, topics.

The Death Café is inspired by centuries-old European salons where people gathered informally to discuss philosophical, political, or scientific ideas. The first Death Café was started by British entrepreneur Jon Underwood in 2010 as a way to “increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their lives.” To date, over 5,000 of these meetings have taken place in countries around the world.

Green-Wood’s death educator Amy Cunningham, an independent funeral director, leads the Death Café. Light refreshments will be served.

Governors Island to Stay Open Late on Fridays and Saturdays in 2019
May 31 all-day
Shot in June 2018 during the blue hour from Governors Island

Governors Island Late Fridays and Saturdays

OH YES!

Fridays and Saturdays
May 24 – August 31, 2019
Open until 10:00 pm

We got the chance to experience late days at the Island last year and so enamored was I with the whole thing that I went two days in a row. Luckily they were absolutely stunning days! You wouldn’t believe how excited I just got when I discovered that, yep, they’re offering this up so early in the season. Had imagined them not doing this until a bit later but we’ll take it!

The Ferry leaves from the historic Battery Maritime Building, located at 10 South Street in Lower Manhattan just north of the Staten Island Ferry. It’s a short and cheap ride across the waters.

If you’re a photographer like yours truly then you’ll really get a kick out of the chance to capture the setting sun as well as the Lower Manhattan skyline during the blue hour and evening. Yes, of course, you can do so on other days when the island’s open to all, but come on! This is a great chance to capture it all under a night sky. I plan to return again, and again and again and again. Will you?

Visit this page at the official site for Ferry information.

The photo at the top of this page was taken at the end of the sunset hour as the night sky crept in. We took many photos like this during our visit.

Below, would be yet another panoramic shot taken there as well as a photo taken in the afternoon.

Also keep in mind that folks will be showing up for these events mighty early and in some cases way ahead of the expect times that the concerts are scheduled to begin.

More information to come, if any, regarding any chance that tickets might be required for a particular concert or two. Last year there was a slight bit of confusion in as far as ticketing was concerned. Regardless, from what we can see, at this moment, no tickets are required.
