Awake & Dance American Ballet Theatre puts to bed its spring/summer season at the Metropolitan Opera House with seven performances featuring the dance world’s most illustrious (and beloved) narcoleptic, Princess Aurora, aka The Sleeping Beauty (below, Paloma Herrera). Set to music by Tchaikovsky and staged by Kevin McKenzie, Gelsey Kirkland and Michael Chernov, after choreography by Marius Petipa, this is unquestionably a crowd-pleaser. Who can resist the story of an innocent damsel awakened from an evil curse by a handsome prince’s kiss? But a word to parents who may want to introduce their kids to this version of the fairy tale: ABT’s Sleeping Beauty clocks in at just over two and a half hours. » The Sleeping

Beauty Enhanced As a connoisseur and collector of European art, Dr. Horace Woody Brock holds very definite opinions as to how objects are displayed in his homes. The economist, who is also a trained classical pianist, does not group works by date, function or even material. Rather, he enhances the beauty of an individual piece by juxtaposing, and thereby complementing, it with another quite different but no less beautiful piece. Treasures from Dr. Brock’s holdings are currently on loan to The Frick Collection: five French clocks for the exhibition Precision and Splendor: Clocks and Watches at The Frick Collection (thru Feb. 2014) and four masterworks of the French 18-century decorative arts. Among the latter is a splendid Sèvres soft-paste potpourri vase and cover (right) that is on display in the mansion’s Fragonard Room, where Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s suite of oil paintings, The Progress of Love, provides the harmonious backdrop. » The Frick Collection, 1 E. 70th St., 212.288.0700

behind the curtain news » by Francis Lewis

Yesterday Today There are those who recall the advent of The Beatles 50 years ago as if it were yesterday, “when all my troubles seemed so far away,” as one of their songs so pithily puts it. “Oh, I believe in yesterday.” For today’s generation, The Fab Four exist only as voices from the past coming though an iPod’s earbuds or as cheeky mates larking about on a DVD transfer of a decades-old movie. For both sets of fans, the old and the new, Let It Be (left) is destined to be a live Broadway concert experience to treasure. A monster hit in London’s West End, the show crosses the Atlantic with its quartet of mop-top look- and soundalikes, period-accurate costumes, state-of-the-art projections and enhanced 3-D sound, the better to hear and groove to 40 of the group’s greatest hits, from “Twist and Shout” and “She Loves You” to “Hey Jude” and “Come Together.” Finally, The Beatles are back in the USA (if not the USSR). » Let It Be, St. James Theatre, 246 W. 44th St., 212.239.6200

When a Broadway show has been running as long as Chicago—it opened on Nov. 14, 1996—the challenge is how to keep it as crisp and new as it was on opening night. Chicago’s producers, Barry and Fran Weissler, are masters at this, frequently changing the cast and bringing in top-name talent to give audiences that old razzledazzle. Usher, Brooke Shields, Melanie Griffith, Michael C. Hall and Christie Brinkley, to name a few, have all had their turn in the spotlight. Now, it’s TV talk show host Wendy Williams (below, right, with her Chicago co-stars Amy Spanger, left, and Amra-Faye Wright, middle) who gets to shine, thru Aug. 11, as Matron “Mama” Morton. Williams could barely contain her excitement when she broke the news to her TV audience. “I can’t wait to sing and dance while still doing the talk show,” she said. “It’s going to be a very busy summer around here. Now you understand why I’m stacking up on paper towels and freezing food. Broadway!”

Alone Together Michael Urie made his name as Marc St. James on TV’s Ugly Betty, but he’s making his mark as an actor in the theater. In the Off-Broadway hit Buyer & Cellar (right), for which he has won the 2013 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Solo Performance, Urie plays Alex More, a struggling actor who takes an odd job looking after an acquisitive Hollywood star’s considerable and eclectic collection of stuff. He’s alone onstage throughout, which has its pluses and minuses. “I miss actors,” Urie laments. “Rehearsals were lonely because there

weren’t other actors to hang out with, complain to or more importantly gauge performances off of. Plus I have all the lines!” But, he quickly adds, “the best part of being alone is I have a complete and original experience with every audience. They are my co-stars. It’s a thrilling experience walking out at the top of the show and wondering what new friends I get to spend the evening with.” » Buyer & Cellar, Barrow Street Theatre, 27 Barrow St., 212.868.4444

Classy Courgette Courgette (French for zucchini) brings to the Theater District a touch of Parisian bistro, with vintage newspapers at the entranceway and cured prosciutto hanging above the bar. Grab a plush booth, and settle in for a number of standout dishes, including an appetizer of cipollini agrodolce with Humboldt Fog cheese, sweetened with golden raisins. Another must-do is the sunchoke soup with shaved black truffles and Parmesan, but save room for main courses such as black cod and a refreshing dessert of yogurt with fruit (below). It was past curtain time and the place was still buzzing: Courgette is getting well-deserved applause. —L.L. » Courgette, 204 W. 55th St., 212.333.7799

The uptown Fig & Olive restaurant (outposts also in the Meatpacking District and Midtown) has all the modern touches of 21st-century food trends: communal dining counters, zinc-topped tables and wood-framed photos of berries, olives and wheat, suggestive of the current farm-to-table sensibility. Choices on the menu can be mix and match: For example, a variety of vegetables, crostini and carpaccios can make for a pleasing meal of small plates (including a scallops with egg plant caviar starter (above). For a main course, salmon with grilled radicchio is crispy, juxtaposed with a creamy cauliflower mascarpone. A magnificent fig and olive chicken tajine looks deceptively heavy but is surprisingly light, enhanced with deeply fragrant Moroccan spices. If you recently had a tiff with someone and are thinking of extending an olive branch, this just might be the place to do it. —L.L. » Fig & Olive, 808 Lexington Ave., 212.207.4555.

The Making of a Master Good chefs know food. Great chefs live and breathe it. Sezai Celikbas, consulting chef for Pera Soho’s Eastern Mediterranean kitchen, is one of the latter. His culinary education started in his childhood, having helped his father run a grill in Istanbul’s Pera district (the neighborhood after which the NYC restaurant he now serves is named). The experience instructed him more than any degree could: “The school of the kitchen is what I attribute my success to,” he proudly declares. Celikbas’ life story is apparent in the menu he oversees: A must-try dish, Lamb “Adana”—tender ground lamb wrapped sushi-style in warm lavash—is named after the intercoastal Turkish town where he was born. Celikbas’ visits to the U.S., which happen in 3-5 month stints, ensure that Pera Soho’s flavors remain authentic, from feta-stuffed phyllo rolls (left) to smoked eggplant with garlic yogurt. But mired in tradition he is not: “No matter how much experience a chef has,” he says, “he should never say no to new suggestions.” After sampling his fare, however, this foodie doesn’t think he should change a thing. —W.F. » Pera Soho, 54 Thompson St., 212.878.6305

A multimedia show … a multimedia artist … some 19thcentury masters … photographic perfectionists … a genius of genre art

Point and Shoot It’s an art-world tradition, this time of year: Galleries mount group exhibits of works from their inventories. Dillon Gallery is devoting its columned, converted 19th-century warehouse to a showcase of some of its best and brightest practitioners of the photographic arts. First up are the works of Maurizio Galimberti, who creates Polaroid mosaics: dozens of frames, each with a tiny or partial image, that collectively form a picture or pattern. Others on display in ensuing weeks include Brian Rose and Edward Fausty, who, like a modern Jacob Riis, capture Downtown nabes in scenes such as “East 4th Street” (above, 1980). All in all, the exhibit encapsulates “a contemporary approach to photography,” says Gallery Manager Diana Lee. » Dillon Gallery, 555 W. 25th St., 212.727.8585, Jul. 18-Aug. 17

Multifaceted “The matrimony of the arts is their life,” artist Fausto Melotti (19011986) once said. “Poetry is only such if wedded to music, painting if wedded to the sentiments of poetry … Pure art is a spinster.” Perhaps it was this philosophy that enabled his own work to encompass so many mediums, a versatility on display in Fausto Melotti: Works on Paper and Plaster. While his well-known sculptures are represented— whimsical copper works and glazed ceramics (which he adopted after his studio was bombed in World War II), such as “Kore” (left, ca. 1954)—there are also less familiar abstract tempera drawings and mixed-media pieces on plaster. Some depict tightly geometric images; others are spontaneous washes of color. All seem to move, as if in rhythm to a far-off symphony. » Barbara Mathes Gallery, 22 E. 80th St., 212.570.4190, thru Jul. 26

Luminous Views

A glimpse of the gently glowing works of Renoir, Sisley and other late-19thcentury giants is always a pleasure, but it’s especially fitting on bright midsummer days. Impressionist Masters features 25 paintings, their ornate, gilded frames enclosing scenes of landscapes or ladies, such as Pissarro’s “Paysanne bêchant,” (above left, 1882) and Degas’ “Femme assise, se coiffant” (above right, c. 1887-90). Host Hammer Galleries’ website also offers a virtual tour of the exhibit. But, as President and Director Howard Shaw notes, “There’s always going to be something about standing in front of a Monet.” » Hammer Galleries, 475 Park Ave., 212.644.4400, thru Aug. 30

OF YOURSELF. Slice of Life

Genre painting—realistic depictions of ordinary people in everyday life—often gets a bad rap. True, these scenes of simple folk at work or play (which were all the rage in the latter half of the 19th century) often descend into Victorian sentimentality. But in the hands of a master, such as John George Brown (1831–1913), pieces such as “Waiting” (above) not only please the eye, but invite the viewer’s imagination to soar. » Questroyal Fine Art, LLC, 903 Park Ave., 212.744.3586

Seductive spectacle is the name of the game at Duane Park (below), a recently relocated shrine to the art of burlesque. In an opulent space decorated to emulate an old-time New Orleans mansion—with stately columns and chandeliers sourced from a Louisiana plantation—a ritzy, fashionable clientele takes in risqué shows over cocktails (such as the Midnight Lover: tequila blanco, citrónge liqueur, grapefruit juice, citrus bitters) and Southern-inflected meals (think: shrimp with grits and pork tenderloin). The performances tend to thrill and tantalize—often featuring live music, magic and striptease by damsels in sexy costumes (check for calendar of events)—so sit back and enjoy (just keep your tongue in your mouth).

Feeling nostalgia for your childhood? A cooling summertime staple, the fruity frozen treat, makes the transition from adolescence to adulthood in prosecco ice pops (right) from Loopy Doopy Rooftop Bar (above)—the only difference from yesteryear is that now a buzz can buffer your brain freeze. The flavors—from orangeade with Cointreau liqueur to piña colada with Malibu Coconut rum—will leave you licking until the last drop. Wines by the glass, sangria by the pitcher and a host of cocktail creations (pear-berry spritzer: pear vodka, blueberries, lemonade) are also on offer, so you can imbibe until you, too, are feeling a little loopy. » Loopy Doopy Rooftop Bar, Conrad New York, 102 North End Ave.,16th fl., 646.769.4250

Peas in a Pod Tippling and rooftops fit together like … well, peas in a pod. Which is why it’s so appropriate that the Pod 39 hotel, a hip haunt with signature micro-sized accommodations, has opened its rooftop lounge (right) for the hot season. The atmosphere is culturally eclectic—with a vibrant, international feel that conjures up summer sojourns in villas by the Gulf of Mexico. Jaw-dropping views of East Midtown (think: the Chrysler and Empire State buildings) are framed by dramatic brick arches and terra-cotta columns with creeping ivy accents. Like to share? Good, because here communal cocktails are taken seriously: Your party’s choice of vodka, gin, tequila or rum can be blended with lime juice, agave nectar and fruit puree before being served in a baby watermelon. Sip and swoon, friends. » The Pod 39 Rooftop Lounge, 145 E. 39th St., 17th fl., 212.865.5700

Bernardaud, the revered French porcelain manufacturer, has a surprise up its sleeve in celebration of 150 years in the industry: Its recently opened boutique exclusively features dinnerware designed by the likes of Sophie Calle, Jeff Koons and the aforementioned Lynch. Here’s to dining with your artistic idols. » Bernardaud, 465 W. 23rd St., 212.255.5280

Fading Prints Once the master of swirling, psychedelic prints, Pucci is headed to a new place. The fabled label just streamlined and dialed down, and these design sentiments are aptly reflected in its latest store (right), which is in good designer company on the Upper East Side. Modeled after the Florentine Palazzo Pucci—which, we expect, after seeing this boutique, is pretty divine—the space is dotted with velvet couches, purple-marble cabinets and lots of regal gold trimming, creating a truly luxurious atmosphere in which to try on the new, more subtle pieces and kiss the patterns of the past a long goodbye. » Pucci, 855 Madison Ave., 212.230.1135

Pegged as an inexpensive yet inspired take on the classic men’s staple, the line appeals to guys who are looking to find that ideal mix of rugged and easyliving look. The new boutique boasts an Americana vibe, too— antique wood, cool vintage trunks and hand-painted windows. And then there’s the women’s collection, “Jachs Girlfriend,” perfect for the all-American girl. » Jachs, 310 Bleecker St., 212.206.6306

she’s so unstoppable By Bob Cannon


here was no ignoring Cyndi Lauper when she burst onto the pop charts in 1983 with irresistible hits like “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” “Time After Time” and “Money Changes Everything.” But what made the Queens native an instant icon was her agile, one-of-a-kind voice, her straight-talking persona and her colorful mélange of hair and off-kilter fashion. Nowadays, Lauper’s star is shining brighter than ever, having written the songs for the Broadway hit Kinky Boots. Featuring Tony winner Harvey Fierstein’s book and choreography and direction by Tony winner Jerry Mitchell, the show has won the Outer Critics Circle and Drama League awards for Best Musical and picked up six Tony awards, including one for Cyndi’s score. You’d think Lauper would be content with her Broadway laurels and her 50 million album sales. But you’d be wrong. Lauper, 60, is also appearing in concert at the Beacon Theatre on Jul. 10 at the tail end of her She’s So Unusual tour, which marks the 30th anniversary of her breakout debut album. We managed to talk with her as she raced to a warm-up show for the tour. You might say that trying to keep up with Cyndi Lauper left us breathless. But then again, she always has.

How did you feel about the Tony nominations? I was thrilled— are you kidding?! I see Kinky Boots on the buses and I go, “Wow, it’s a hit!” This was just all of us at the right place at the right time, saying the right thing, you know? Where did you get the inspiration for Kinky Boots? Harvey

called me. I had always wanted to work with him. I would call him up and sing stuff to him over the phone! I think that it’s a great fortune to work with your friends. For these guys, it is about the music and the work, not about a big ego. Did you and Harvey sit down and map out the songs, one by one? Oh, he would tell me things like “I need a song called ‘Sex

Is in the Heel’ or things like that. He was clear about it; I had never worked with Harvey, but I had worked with Jerry, and he’s awesome. So I thought, “I want to give him something that’s really energetic,” which is very important because he’s a choreographer. So I did a lot of research; but I research music anyway. I travel the world singing to people, but I also listen to what they’re singing. I went to see Tango Argentina but I also was very into [Argentine composer Astor] Piazzolla. When I was leaving Argentina, they had Tango Electronica at the airport. I saw it in a bin, and I bought all three copies. Those

We were also doing sort of a bit of West Side Story, too, because West Side Story is the quintessential musical. The way [composer Leonard] Bernstein mixed things! The foundation was classical, but on top of that were Latin rhythms, and on top of that jazz. That is what I wanted to do with this show.

And now Broadway and Manhattan are home? I live Uptown. Downtown’s great, but not necessarily for kids. Not my kid, who’s 15 now.

You’re about to go on tour—does it seem like 30 years? Well, I’ve been busy! [laughs] So I didn’t even really have time to reminisce. The last time everything blew up, it got crazy like this, and I didn’t get a chance to really enjoy anything. So I’ll have to try and make sure I’m enjoying it.

Do you ever get a chance to shop? Ahh—Nikki Fontanella. She’s my stylist and she goes out to look for things. I’m not the perfect figure, and I’m not tall. I think the silhouette’s important, and things that elongate you are best. I do wear a lot of black—because black is the new black! [laughs].

I would listen to them and to the different voices. That’s how I learned to sing, when I was about 4, and I learned how to manipulate my voice to sound like other people. So I was Ezio Pinza, yet I was also Mary Martin.

What I was attracted to in this project was the fact that this is a story that’s a fable. It has humanity in it; and in the end, it’s about healing and accepting others. And understanding that when you accept others, you accept yourself too. IN New YORK | july 2013 |

Summer is the time when locals and visitors of all ages spill out into parks, playgrounds, plazas and waterfront promenades to enjoy New York City alfresco. But let’s face it: Too much heat and humidity can make even the most energetic among us feel sticky, thirsty, cranky and lethargic. Don’t sweat it. A slew of exciting, exhilarating and inspiring family-friendly activities take place amid the cool comfort of air conditioning. Theatrical Climate Control At this time of year, Times Square may seem more like a sweat lodge than the Crossroads of the Universe. Nevertheless, theatergoers are advised to bring along light sweaters when attending Broadway shows. “We precool most houses to about 60 to 64 degrees,” says John Darby, Shubert Organization vice president of facilities. “Just the act of opening the doors and getting people into their seats will warm things up, but you may feel a bit chilly at first.” Depending on the amount of heat from the stage lights, the thermostat is adjusted during each performance to maintain an average room temperature of 68 to 70 degrees, he adds. Currently performing within these temperate zones are several musicals with catchy tunes, engaging stories and important life lessons for young and old: Matilda The Musical (Shubert Theatre, 235 W. 44th St., 212.239.6200), based on Roald Dahl’s novel about a schoolgirl with clueless parents and outsized intelligence; Annie (Palace Theatre, 1564 Broadway, 877.250.2929), in which a spunky red-headed orphan finds a dog named Sandy, a loving father figure and her dreams of a happier tomorrow fulfilled; Cinderella (Broadway Theatre, 1681 Broadway, 212.239.6200), the fairy tale that has fueled little girls’ Prince Charming fantasies for decades IN New YORK | july 2013 |

and, thanks to lavish costumes by William Ivey Long, still has them (and their mommies) swooning in the aisles; and Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark (Foxwoods Theatre, 213 W. 42nd St., 877.250.2929), the comicbook-to-stage epic in which a superhero’s aerial stunts are daring enough to raise goose bumps. Although the air conditioning is purposely turned off for portions of Off-Broadway’s The Gazillion Bubble Show: The Next Generation (New World Stages, 340 W. 50th St., 212.239.6200), there’s no need to fan yourself with a Playbill during the 70-minute spectacle, assures performer Deni Yang. That’s because a strong breeze, created by six electric fans, blows waves of tiny bubbles—made from a proprietary formula of water, glycerin, baby shampoo and dishwashing liquid—directly into the audience. Hands reach out to touch the weightless iridescent orbs, which create a refreshing burst as they land on heads, faces and arms. While many a New York show offers glowing performances, only one glows in the dark. Bedecked in bright, multicolored neon lightup suits, a gymnastic crew of performers—who shot to fame two years ago on TV’s America’s Got Talent—blend dance, music and technology in a 55-minute, eyedazzling event called iLuminate: Artist of Light (New World Stages, 340 W. 50th St., 212.239.6200). Sipping and Supping Sidewalk cafés and rooftop restaurants certainly have their charms, but when you’ve been traipsing around the steamy or rainy city with tykes in tow, a climate-controlled interior becomes most desirable. Moms and daughters (as well as dads and sons) are joined by Kit, McKenna and other beloved dolls at American Girl Café (American Girl Place New York, 609 Fifth Ave., 877.247.5223), a fanciful eatery, where gracious service and classic eats are extended to both animate and inanimate diners. At brunch, lunch, high tea and dinner, pink lemonade can quench underage thirsts, while the over-21 set may prefer cold beer, wine or champagne. Nutrition is a consideration at Landmarc in the Time Warner Center (The Shops at Columbus Circle, 10 Columbus Circle, 3rd fl., 212.823.6123). Executive Chef/owner Marc Murphy’s kids’ menu, one of the most popular in the city, features several items prepared in accordance with MyPlate, the USDA’s dietary guidelines for healthy eating, including green eggs and ham (scrambled eggs with spinach- and basil-pesto and cheesy whole-wheat toast) and whole-wheat quesadillas with chicken, cheese and vegetables. “Each item includes grains, dairy, vegetables and protein, along with sliced apples and bananas for fruit,” says Chef Murphy. “I’ve always said that we shouldn’t underestimate our kids when it comes to their palates. They should be exposed to as many different foods as possible.” Still, Landmarc serves “kids’ staples, such as mac ’n’ cheese, pigs in a blanket, burgers and chicken fingers.”

Familiarity is the main ingredient at Buca di Beppo (1540 Broadway, 3rd fl., 212.764.6527), the 99th link in a casual-dining chain that recently opened above its sister restaurant, Planet Hollywood, in Times Square. Operating under a system dubbed “bucanomics,” portions are huge, served family style (small is for two, large for four) and include all the standard crowd-pleasers (lasagna, veal saltimbocca, chicken rigatoni). Each kids’ menu selection comes with a complimentary glass of wild raspberry, sassy strawberry or purple pear lemonade. Everyone becomes a kid in a candy store—literally—during a visit to Max Brenner (841 Broadway, 646.467.8803). With vats of swirling chocolate at the door and mocha-hued pipes running along the coffeeand-caramel-colored interior, this emporium/eatery seems a living embodiment of Willy Wonka’s famed factory. Brenner believes in cacao at

every meal, from breakfast (chocolate-flavored pancakes) to dinner (baked pizza bread dough adorned with melted chocolate chunks and hazelnut bits, bananas, peanut butter or roasted marshmallows). There are cocoa-infused cocktails for grown-ups and savory salads, sandwiches and pastas, too. But why bother, when a chocolate burger, with strawberry ketchup and vanilla cream mustard, awaits? Shopping for Fun Entertaining diversions and must-have merchandise are often found in the cool aisles of child-centric stores. For example, kidding around (60 W. 15th St., 212.645.6337) is chockablock with top-quality educational toys, dolls, stuffed animals, puzzles, robots, science kits, puppets and board games. Thousands of books beckon readers, from toddler to teenage, at The Scholastic Store (557 Broadway, 212.343.6166); in addition, little ones can step inside a larger-than-life doghouse inhabited by Clifford the Big Red Dog, as well as a Magic Schoolbus; or settle down

for morning story time (Tues-Thurs, 11 a.m.). Visitors to world-famous FAO Schwarz (767 Fifth Ave., 212.644.9400), the 151-year-old wonderland for the young and young at heart, can salute toy soldiers who guard the front door, dance on a monster-size piano keyboard, get a butterfly or tiger glitter tattoo, bite into a sweet snack at the new PEEPS & Company store-within-a-store and, of course, shop ’til they drop. Meanwhile, those who venture into the subterranean sweet pink wonderland that is Eloise at The Plaza (The Plaza Hotel, 1 W. 58th St., 212.546.5460) can luxuriate in the Living Room, watch Eloise movie clips in the Library Room, primp in front of a mirror while trying on fanciful Eloise costumes and, of course, buy some Rawther Fancy branded items for their cool friends back home. Playing Around Indoor activities are not necessarily sedentary pursuits. In fact, plenty of intergenerational action can be found under ceilings and within walls, where youngsters and adult companions can literally let off steam. Pulses race at Nintendo World (10 Rockefeller Plz., 646.459.0800), a two-level, 10,000-square-foot Mecca for players of all ages, who jump, kick, punch, shoot and otherwise test their mettle in interactive gaming areas. Lower-tech but equally intense pursuits are practiced at Make Meaning (1501 Third Ave., 212.744.0011), where parents and kids bond over hands-on creative projects—cake decorating, soap and jewelry making, pottery painting and paper crafting. “Cool!” is the most-often heard exclamation upon entering The Art of the Brick (Discovery Times Square, 226 W. 44th St., 866.987.9692, thru Feb. 5, 2014), an exhibit of more than 100 sculptures constructed by artist Nathan Sawaya out of millions of LEGO toy bricks, including a 20-foot-long T. rex and a larger-than-life human skull. Of course, the display is strictly look, don’t touch—but budding architects can get hands-on at the LEGO store (620 Fifth Ave., 212.245.5973) nearby. At Madame Tussauds New York (234 W. 42nd St., 866.841.3505), things may heat up when wax likenesses of Louis, Harry, Liam, Zayn and Niall—better known as boy band One Direction—make a local stop on their three-city world tour (Jul. 19-Oct. 11). Their heads are painstakingly sculpted out of a temperature-resistant wax mix, so the faces are not likely to melt when adoring fans snuggle up for photos. Posing like a crab, cobra, cat, cow, butterfly or downward dog can improve strength, balance and flexibility in bodies of all ages. Adults and kids together can learn how in single classes at Karma Kids Yoga (104 W. 14th St., 646.638.1444). The smallest yogis—babies as young as six weeks—are encouraged to climb on Mom as she performs her asanas. Chanting oms can’t hurt. But the surest way for you and your family to chill out this month is probably to step indoors, join hands, close your eyes … and visualize making snow angels in Central Park.

otham is certainly not the first place that comes to mind for fresh-air enthusiasts and nature lovers. But when summer comes to the hot town, even the most stalwart take to the water, woods and gardens—all without leaving the city—for some best-of-both-worlds adventures.

On the Water(front)

In the middle of Times Square or Greenwich Village, it’s hard to remember Manhattan is an island. But come summer, the city’s waterways become the real avenues, bursting with activity. Get an elegant overview via a cruise on World Yacht (Pier 81, W. 41st St. & the Hudson River, 888.679.7812). Its sit-down dinner voyages go around Manhattan’s tip, offering views of iconic skyscrapers and bridges—and a ringside seat of Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks on a special July 4 cruise. For more purposeful journeys, New York Water Taxi (866.985.2542) services several piers along the East and West sides, offering a Hop-On/Hop-Off opportunity to see Manhattan monuments. Colored like the checkered yellow cabs of yore, the Water Taxi also departs from Wall Street’s Pier 11 to the neighborhood of Red Hook, Brooklyn, whose fast-gentrifying delights include an Ikea superstore. But don’t forget to stroll around Red Hook’s Louis Valentino Jr. Park and Pier (Ferris St., btw Coffey & Van Dyke sts.), a small waterfront park filled with greenery and flowers. The hawsers, anchors and oyster traps scattered along the water’s edge will make you feel like you’re on a ship more than land.

Thousands of walkers and bikers cross the 130-year-old Brooklyn Bridge each day, drinking in NYC’s dramatic skyline.

If you hit Red Hook on a Thursday or Saturday, you’ll find open the Waterfront Museum (290 Conover St., 718.624.4719), with its eclectic collection of river memorabilia and live riverboat-style acts in a restored wooden barge run by “Captain Dave,” a former circus performer turned waterway activist. Then hit Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies (185 Van Dyke St., 888.450.5463) nearby for a chocolatecovered mini pie on a stick. If you’d rather be the captain than a passenger, head to New York City Downtown Boathouse (info@downtown

Into the Woods

Many a native New Yorker grows up thinking “woodlands” is synonymous with the 250-acre New York Botanical Garden (2900 Southern Blvd., Bronx, 718.817.8700), whose terrain includes the 50-acre Thain Family Forest, the largest remaining tract of the original forest that once covered this concrete jungle. NYBG’s Wild Medicine: Healing Plants Around the World exhibit (thru Sept. 8) is in full bloom this month. Learn how the cinchona tree helps cure malaria and the bark of the white willow figures in the production of aspirin, to name just two of the 500 medicinal flora discussed or displayed. The Italian Renaissance Garden, based on a 1545 botanical effort at the University of Padua, has been created for the show. Thus inspired, you

may want to head to nearby Arthur Ave. afterward, for some of the tastiest Italian food north of Little Italy, served at several alfresco-oriented restaurants. However, there’s no need to leave Manhattan for rolling fields. Riverside Park, a long and luxurious tract of greenery running for four miles along the Hudson River, from W. 72nd to W. 158th sts., is one of only eight designated city scenic landmarks. And scenic it is, with 330 acres of English-style parkland, gardens, recreational areas and winding paths, arranged in a series of landscaped levels down to the river’s edge. Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted in the 1870s, the park was augmented by urban planner Robert Moses in the 1930s, who added features such as the limestone Rotunda—which now houses the Boat Basin Café (W. 79th St. & the Hudson River, 212.496.5542), an ideal spot for a burger and brew.

Out for a Stroll

Head Downtown for the High Line (212.500.6035), a pedestrian parkway built on a historic elevated freight rail line that runs btw 10th and 11th aves., from Gansevoort to W. 30th sts. It’s a reclaimed oasis of creatively planted blooms and greenery sprinkled with art exhibits and artisa-

Houston St., Pier 96 at W. 56th St., and W. 72nd St. This is your chance to see some of the most spectacular views of the city, and get some exercise to boot. Looking for a little culture while you enjoy the waterfront sights? The River to River arts festival (rivertori, thru Jul. 14) features a daily variety of music, dance, theater and art projects throughout lower Manhattan. You can catch Cuban-born percussionist/singer Pedrito Martinez on Jul. 2 in Rockefeller Park, at the north end of Battery Park City, listening to his “African-infused new world funk” amid views of the harbor, the Statue of Liberty and Staten Island. Or, on Jul. 11, check out the Hungry March Band, a Brooklyn-born brass-and-dance ensemble at One New York Plaza, btw South and Whitehall sts., in the shadow of Manhattan’s southernmost skyscraper.

nal snack stands; newcomers this year include Delaney Barbeque’s SmokeLine, featuring ribs and brisket sandwiches, and Sigmund’s Pretzels, a twist on a New York tradition with flavors like feta olive, truffle cheddar and bacon scallion. Or save the High Line for nighttime. Every Tuesday, starting at dusk, btw W. 13th and W. 14th sts., telescopes and instruction provided by the Amateur Astronomers Association offer a chance to learn more about the NYC stars (beyond the ones on Broadway). Running parallel to trendy Chelsea and the Meatpacking District, the High Line is always bustling. If it’s a more civilized stroll you’re after, nothing fits the bill better than the Conservatory Garden (Fifth Ave. & E. 105th St., 212.310.6600), a hidden enclave within Central Park. Reached through an ornate wrought-iron gate that once decorated a Vanderbilt manse, it’s actually several little formal gardens, done in Italian, French and English styles. You’re in luck in July, as roses, hollyhocks and baby’s breath are all in full bloom. After exiting, head east one block to tree-lined Madison Ave., whose quaint shops, art

galleries and outdoor cafés may remind you of that other great alfresco city, Paris. There may be no more iconic walk in New York than crossing the East River on the mile-long wooden plankway smack in the middle of one of the most celebrated bridges in the world—the 130-year-old Brooklyn Bridge (from Manhattan, enter at Park Row & Centre St., across from City Hall Park; from Brooklyn, at Tillary St. & Boerum Pl.). Current construction may mean some views are slightly obstructed. No matter: Walkways and bike paths are open to accommodate the 7,100 souls who cross each day. History, a dramatic skyline and Lady Liberty herself come together over the water and under the cables to remind you that once summer hits the city, New York is best experienced from the outside in.

The lobby at The Westin New York Grand Central

Run Around Town Summer in the city: “From yummy cuisine to first-class exhibits, festivals to shows, you can tour the world right here in the Big Apple,” says Bogna Strzelczyk, concierge at The Westin New York Grand Central. When asked to advise on what’s hot for the whole family this July, she led us straight to the Brooklyn waterfront. “Rent a bike to explore the piers along Brooklyn Bridge Park for the stunning Manhattan Island views. Visit the floating concert hall called Bargemusic and then take a spin on Jane’s Carousel.” Or, for an easier route to Brooklyn, “board a yellow checkered New York Water Taxi to cross the East River and enjoy the best pizza at Grimaldi’s. While you’re on the waterfront, stop at the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory to cool off.” If you’re looking for outdoor dining with a view back in Manhattan, head to Riverpark. “The restaurant offers patio and terrace dining overlooking the East River and serves farm-to-table cuisine family-style.” If the weather is not too hot and you’d prefer to stay inland, “the Dinosaur Safari is a must-do at the Bronx Zoo.” It’s wise to have TIPS FROM: a thunderstorm plan, too: “Spend the day on the Bogna Strzelczyk, Concierge, The Westin Upper West Side at the American Museum of Natural New York Grand Central, History.

Trivia and tidbits on the city that never sleeps

On the Avenue

In spring, Park Ave. blooms with tulips; in summer, it’s sculpture. Paley on Park Avenue features 13 commissioned steel pieces by Albert Paley in the meridians btw E. 52 and E. 67th sts. While not site-specific, the works do reflect their locales, Paley says. One of the largest, “Encore” (left), is at E. 57th St., the avenue’s biggest cross-street.

Daring Dodgers The Brooklyn Dodgers were a beloved baseball franchise that became a trailblazing team for the country. In 1945, they signed African-American Jackie Robinson, making him the first black baseball

Toy Story

player in the major leagues.

FAO Schwarz is not only one of the oldest toy stores in the world (it opened in 1862) but it has also appeared in such movies as Big, Mighty Aphrodite, The Smurfs and Baby Boom.

Robinson helped the team

Between 1947 and 1956, nab six National League Pennants. He retired in 1956, and the Dodgers moved to Los Angeles the following year.

U.N. Facts:

Women’s Day

Harlem is known for not only its historic brownstones (above) but also its star-studded residents. Among the famous who have lived in Harlem: novelists James Baldwin and J.D. Salinger, pianist Fats Waller and actor Chevy Chase.

Ladies’ Mile was a name applied to a shopping district along Broadway and Sixth Ave., from W. 18th to W. 24th sts., in the mid1800s. Retailers such as Lord & Taylor, B. Altman and Arnold Constable created ornate display windows to attract the cream of Manhattan society.

 I look out the window and I see the lights and the skyline and the “ people on the street rushing around looking for action, love, and the world’s greatest chocolate chip cookie, and my heart does a little dance.”—Nora Ephron, on New York City 92
