Park It Here

These cultural events—all in or around great New York parks—can be part of a full day of outdoor leisure, now that summer weather is here.

  1. 1. “McSweeney’s and The Believer Live”

    June 7 at Bryant Park Reading Room

    Grab a bench as contributors Rich Cohen, Evany Thomas, and Dustin Long read from recent (likely high-minded and ironic) works, as part of the park’s annual reading series.

  2. 2. “The Art of Betty Woodman”

    June 10 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

    After a sleepy couple of hours in Central Park, head over to the Met for its celebration of this American artist best known for her ceramic sculpture.

  3. 3. “Earth’s Elders”

    June 11 at Makor

    Visit the nineteenth century—in person—at this talk by photographer Jerry Friedman, who spent four years traveling around the world taking photos of the 60 oldest people on Earth.
