Five Diversions for New Yorkers Who Can’t Get Away
We came up with eight trips for New Yorkers in our special Getaway Section (page 24), but for those of you who can’t get out of town this summer… well, this one’s for you. The Foodie The NYC Food Film Festival (Sept 6-8, Water Taxi Beach, Queens) features film about food served with food, by foodaphilic cinephiles… brilliant. The Art Lover
Industrial sculptor Richard Serra’s Moma Exhibition is an otherworldly experience, with curving, winding monstrosities on display.
The Adventurer Trapeze classes in the city… learn to soar with the greatest of ease. Espana Streb in Williamsburg is a good start.
Astroland’s impending shutdown is the perfect time to rediscover Coney Island. Why not fat Russians in gold chains and a freaky sideshow? Quick before it’s all a Six Flags!
The Party Animal
Join another kind of party... the Green Party, at Green Drinks! Seriously, you selfish drunk, you might grow a soul. (Check green-links.org for details.)
