Central Park Moonlight Bike Ride
For nearly 20 years, New Yorkers have spent their "First Fridays" pedaling through Central Park under the pale moonlight. Glide past the lake and through the pathways with fellow bike enthusiasts as the city skyline hovers above. For more information, please click here.
Upright Citizens Brigade
Upright Citizens Brigade is considered the epicenter of the New York sketch/improv comedy scene. Many shows start here and go on to win fame at big, fancy comedy festivals. And yet, inexplicably, the vibe is relaxed and friendly. Shows are free on Monday nights at 11:00 p.m.
Timescapes: A Multi-Media Portrait of New York
Timescapes is a 25-minute multimedia experience, tracing the growth of New York City from a settlement of a few hundred Europeans, Africans and Native Americans to its present status as one of the world's great cities. Created by Jake Barton of Local Projects and James Sanders, co-writer of the PBS series New York: A Documentary History, and narrated by actor Stanley Tucci, the film features animated maps and archival photographs, prints and paintings from the Museum's collections. Entry is free as the Museum of the City of New York is a member of the NYU Freeseum network.
