theater news by Francis Lewis


Broadway Goes to the Dogs And the Tony Award for Best Performance by a Canine in a Featured Role in a Play or Musical goes to … Would that there were such a Tony because three talented dogs are currently giving their all and lapping up applause on the Great White Way: Trixie (left, as Mr. Woofles, with costar Karen Ziemba) in the musical Bullets Over Broadway; senior pit bull Violet as Candy’s Dog in Of Mice and Men—arguably the most heartbreaking performance of the season, by man or beast; and Roxie as Billie Holiday’s Chihuahua, Pepe, in Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill. Winners—and scene-stealers—all.

“The goal is to have something that is racially, culturally and generationally meaningful … and that lots of people come out to see.” —Kenny Leon, director of the new Broadway musical

For Charity The more clothes the performers take off, the more money the audience gives. Since 1992, Broadway Bares, the annual strip-athon, has raised more than $11.3 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. This month’s tribute to rock ‘n’ roll should up the ante as it turns up the volume. | Broadway Bares: Rock Hard!, Hammerstein Ballroom, 311 W. 34th St., 212.840.0770, x268, Jun. 22

Blood & Mud

Kenneth Branagh promises that his version of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, in which he makes his long-awaited New York stage debut as the title character (he also co-directs with Rob Ashford), will not only be a bloody good show, it will be a muddy one as well. Rain drenches the earthcovered stage. Weather most foul in which to commit murder most foul. | Macbeth, Park Avenue Armory, 643 Park Ave., armoryon, thru Jun. 22

In Brief • When movie star Emma Stone pulled out of the planned revival of the musical Cabaret, movie star— and three-time Oscar nominee— Michelle Williams (below) auditioned and landed the plum part of Sally Bowles for her Broadway debut. Willkommen, Fräulein Williams. | Cabaret, Kit Kat Klub at Studio 54, 254 W. 54th St., 212.719.1300

• In 1928, Cole Porter was the expat toast of Paree. His show, La Revue des Ambassadeurs, was packing them in. Strangely enough, it has never been performed in the United States. Until now, that is. Vince Giordano strikes up the band, and, for one night only, it’s 1928 all over again. | The Town Hall, 123 W. 43rd St., 212.840.2824, Jun. 27

Sensory Overload Queen of the Night gives new meaning to dinner theater. It’s the complete package: three hours of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, feasting (a whole roasted suckling pig is brought to the table on a skewer and ceremoniously carved), free-flowing wine, dancing and, through it all, nonstop, mind-blowing entertainment of the European circus variety. If a gorgeously dressed (or half-dressed) actor comes by and strokes your face, unties your tie or performs acrobatics in your face, surrender to the experience: It’s all in good fun. There’s nothing else like it in town. | Queen of the Night, Diamond Horseshoe, 235 W. 46th St., 212.706.7344

• Fifty years ago, Rugantino, one of Italy’s most popular musicals, played a three-week engagement at Broadway’s Mark Hellinger Theatre. This month, the tale of a funloving ladies’ man returns for three performances. The hero’s name derives from “arroganza,” Italian for “arrogance,” which we New Yorkers call ”chutzpah.” | New York City Center, 131 W. 55th St., 212.581.1212, Jun. 12-14 | june 2014 | IN New YORK

night spots

the after-dark scene by William G. Frierson IV

Hop on the Soul Train

Boogie down at a far-out cocktail crib that’s straight out of gaudy 1970s NYC (in the most funkadelic ways). Think: a wall of vintage Playboy covers, wood paneling, standing tables that could easily double as stripper poles and retro sips, such as the namesake Golden Cadillac (left; Galliano, coconut cream, crème de cacao and orange bitters). The ’70s Sundays Series features mixologist talks on period drinks. The place is hot, filled with Casanovas and cuties—no phonies allowed. Dig it? | Golden Cadillac, 13 First Ave., 212.995.5151

Seduce Me

The Secret Garden Discovering a secret garden is a childhood dream. Now, adults get one in real life—in the form of Galllow Green, a rooftop bar at Sleep No More’s McKittrick Hotel. It’s a storybook fantasy: As dark descends,

club-heavy Meatpacking ‘hood. A small stage, with reflective, stalagmite-like decorations, hosts live performances while patrons, perched on modern bar stools and sofas, sip South American-inspired cocktails. Seduced yet? | Bar Naná, 63 Gansevoort St., 646.964.4357


a brass band heralds the night. Charming touches, like loos built into an “abandoned shed” and a loopy botanist (actor) who roams the grounds tending to his plants, enchant tipplers enjoying summer delights, such as the Sleep Bowmore Punch (scotch, wine, orange shrub, sugar, nutmeg, lemon). | Gallow Green, The McKittrick Hotel, 542 W. 27th St., 212.564.1662

Sapphire New York offers guests a sleek, mirrored 10,000-square-foot space for relaxation and entertainment; the on-site steak house, Prime 333, prepares traditional steak dishes, South American lobster tails and more. | Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club, 333 E. 60th St., 212.421.3600

• A wide range of shaving kits, grooming products, individual razors and brushes (above) are what you will find at êShave locations around the city: Grooming experts also share shaving tips and advice. | êShave New York, 1025 Third Ave., 212.838.1515 • At Truman’s Gentlemen’s Groomers, you can opt for a 45-minute Spa Shave, which includes a mask and eye gel, facial scrub, hot towel and, of course, a clean shave. | Truman’s Gentlemen’s Groomers, 120 E. 56th St., 212.759.5015

• Fellow Barber brings back yesterday’s barbershop, in a contemporary, upscale setting. Services include the “Hangover Treatment,” a pampering facial and temple massage. | Fellow Barber, 5 Horatio St., 212.929.3917

Fit for a King

Looking for that fits-like-a-glove suit? Mohan’s Custom Tailors uses some 14,000 English and Italian fabrics and 40 suit styles to create that perfect garment (like this one being made for Walt ”Clyde“ Frazier). Suit styles run the gamut from double-breasted to “the tech” (for those in need of iPockets). If you are also looking for a customtailored shirt, choose from 16 cuff styles and 20 collar styles. Mohan’s also designs custom-made belts. Now, when people say, “That suit looks like it was made for you,” all you have to do is smile knowingly. | Mohan’s Custom Tailors, 60 E. 42nd St., #1432, 212.671.1166

Sweet Cenita Two things you must do at La Cenita Steak: Start with the pistachiodotted guacamole (below) and end with the s’mores empañada for dessert (above). An airy, large dining room is bounded by exposed brick, and rich red leather banquettes add a cheery warmth. Two outstanding main courses are the spicy stuffed lobster and a tomahawk steak with a variety of dipping sauces. Hot food in an oh-so-cool space. | La Cenita Steak, 409 W. 14th St., 646.289.3930

Fit for a King Officially on the red-hot list of go-to eateries for 2014 is Kingside, the new restaurant in the Viceroy New York hotel. Done in structured and gleaming materials of wood, zinc and black-and-white tile, the restaurant’s chessboard look is given an added shot of charm with red grout accenting. The menu is New American, with influences of both French and Italian. Small-plate starters can be as difficult to decide on as a complex chess move, when crispy baby artichokes, hay-aged pecorino toast with truffle honey and grilled octopus with apple cider gelée (left) are on offer. Afterward, join the throngs at the bar for an after-dinner drink and a classic NYC scene. | Kingside, Viceroy New York, 124 W. 57th St., 212.707.8000

A 1920s speakeasy-turned-steak-house, veteran Theater District venue Gallaghers looks like just the sort of club you’d love to be a member of. Behind the vintage horseshoe-shaped bar, bartenders mix a range of cocktails (try the old-fashioned, made with both bourbon and rye). Guests can dine there, or opt for a table in the gentrified dining room, amid wood-paneled walls, gleaming copper chandeliers and red banquettes. The bill of fare boasts traditional cow-palace favorites—from a hickory log-grilled, perfectly charred porterhouse to roast prime rib, aged in the glass-walled meat locker in front—along with fresh fish and some classics-for-thefuture, like a spicy tuna poke appetizer and a pistachio soufflé for dessert. Two other must-haves: the creamed spinach (from owner Dean Poll’s personal recipe) and the housemade potato chips. | Gallaghers, 228 W. 52nd St., 212.586.5000

John Varvatos gives the Upper East Side the rock-star treatment at a new flagship boutique. The menswear designer’s edgy collections of tailored clothing, watches, jewelry and accessories are complemented by the rebel attitude of the 4,200-square-foot location, which pays tribute to rock ‘n’ roll history with displays of music photography, mannequins depicting the members of KISS and limited-edition prints of jazz icons available for purchase. The outlet may be the stairway to heaven for Varvatos, who says a Madison Avenue store has “always been a dream of mine.” | John Varvatos, 765 Madison Ave., 212.760.2414

Specializing in costume jewelry, Michal Negrin showcases a selection of lacy baubles, floral necklaces and tons of accessories encrusted with Swarovski crystals in her well-lit, fairy-tale-inspired shop. The dreamy motifs and organic shapes extend into the summer swimwear collection, as well.

Hot Rose

California heat seems to radiate off the photographs of Jeff Bark in his show Goldenboy. But Bark’s subjects, like “Untitled (Black Cup)” (2014), were shot in the photographer’s New York State garage, staged to replicate the California backyard where he made his first photographs. Idyllic at first glance, the images darken on close viewing. These yellow roses project Old Master perfection until you notice the keg-party litter surrounding the vase. | Hasted Kraeutler, 537 W. 24th St., 212.627.0006, thru Jun. 14

For more on art, go to:

Some things go together naturally, like bacon and eggs. And then there are the unlikely matchups in the works of French artist Pierre Matter. The sculptures in his show Hybrids provoke thought with unexpected pairings, like “Ocean Balloon” (2013), a towering hot air balloon riding on the back of a stingray. How science changes nature fascinates Matter, a selfdescribed “salvager,” whose art repurposes scrap metal and recycled objects. This leads to renderings of humans and animals caught in close encounters with machine components. | AFA, 54 Greene St., 212.226.7374, thru Aug. 15

To an entire generation

How does it feel to be doing live theater again? It’s fantastic, especially with a New York audience: They’re so vocal and they give you so much. It’s not just that they laugh at the funny moments; they’ll also gasp! Some of the humor in the show is quite dark and quite shocking at times, and you’ll hear people being scandalized by a joke— which is just a brilliant feeling for an actor on the stage!

new STAGE Daniel Radcliffe and Sarah Greene in The Cripple of Inishmaan


Is the humor too sharp for American audiences? We thought it might be, but so far people seem to be really enjoying it. It’s interesting, because there are so many politically incorrect jokes in the show. There’s one towards the end when my character is slightly rude to his aunties, and the doctor says to me, “You shouldn’t talk to them like that,” and I say, “I know, but they keep going on and on.” Then the doctor says, “I know they do, but they’re women!” Now, even though it’s set in 1934 and there have been a number of politically incorrect things all evening, that’s the joke that got a big laugh every night with a British audience. But in America, you just sort of sense a lot of men looking nervously at their wives to see how they can react! Do you still get recognized on the street from Harry Potter? Yeah, I do, absolutely, but people in New York are always really polite about it. They’re always

of children (and their parents), Daniel Radcliffe will always be Harry Potter, the young wizard of J.K. Rowling’s best-selling novels. Only 11 when he filmed the first of the eight Potter films, Daniel Jacob Radcliffe virtually grew up onscreen before our eyes. Three years after wrapping up the Potter saga, 25-year-old Radcliffe is well into the next phase of his career. Onscreen, he’s starred in the 2012 horror thriller, The Woman in Black, and as Beat poet Allen Ginsberg in 2013’s Kill Your Darlings. Now Radcliffe is making his third trip to Broadway (after 2008’s revival of Equus and 2011’s revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying) in Martin McDonagh’s sharp-edged The Cripple of Inishmaan. He plays a young man who suffers from partial paralysis, proving to all doubters that Radcliffe’s talents extend far beyond Potter’s wizardry. He has evolved into an actor’s actor who looks for substance over style in his roles. When we caught up with him as he prepared for the opening of The Cripple of Inishmaan, he made it clear that the magic he’s most interested in studying nowadays is the kind that takes place every night on the theatrical stage.

very sort of sweet and enthusiastic. On the whole, Harry Potter is one of the more well-loved franchises. I’m lucky to have been connected to something that’s close to people’s hearts. Your parents were in the arts. Did their experience help give you good support at home? They had so much advice that they could pass on, particularly with my dad about scripts. As a literary agent, he was all about finding new writers, new material and new voices. And that’s been a really big influence on me. Originality is, I hope, a theme that runs through all the work I want to do—and also intelligence. Did your mom help you knock on doors? No, no, no, my mum has never put a word in for me for any part! The way it came about for my first-ever job was [through] a friend of hers, Sue Latimer, who was an agent. When I was 9 and doing really badly at school, my mum said, “He’s a really unhappy kid.” And Sue said, “Why don’t you send him up for an audition? That’ll be something that makes him feel a bit special.” So that’s how I wound up an actor. You virtually grew up on film and stage sets. How did you make friends? There is something about being out on a stage together and having to step in and save each other’s ass, it really does bond you as a group. How to Succeed was probably one of the biggest—I still have so many friends from that production. How did you avoid typecasting? For me, it just meant taking on as wide a range of parts as early as I could, starting with Equus in London. Whether you liked or didn’t like my performance, the one thing that couldn’t be disputed was that it was the action of somebody who wanted to be an actor and wasn’t content to just coast on their fame. And since then it’s been just about repeating that, continuing to push and challenge myself. As long as I’m doing that, then I’ll be doing something hopefully fresh and unexpected. Do you own a place in New York? Yeah, I do. I just love it here. It’s so easy to live in New York. The people are friendly, and it’s just a great city! It’s the only place anywhere in the world, other than London, where I get off the plane and I don’t feel totally like an alien. Any favorite places in town? I live near the Hudson River, so wandering around Hudson River Park is beautiful. There’s a great place called Fat Cat, a bar that has table tennis as well, which I’m a big fan of. I think one of the wonderful things about New York is the food. In New York, you can just sort of wander in any direction from your house, and you will find something that you haven’t been to before. Say you have friends coming in from London. Where do you take them in New York? I’d probably just take them for a walk around the city. Just go out and start exploring. The people-watching in the city is insane fun, just because there are some crazy people here—and some very uninhibited ones! IN New YORK | june 2014 |

n a c i r e m A ritage e H This season, a number of Broadway dramas and musicals take their inspiration from America’s past. Has history ever been this much fun?

By Bob Cannon Winston Churchill said that those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. But if you’re a fan of the Broadway scene, repeating history is not such a bad thing. Because rarely has the Great White Way seen so many productions based on stories from America’s past. Looking for a tale from the Great Depression? Try Of Mice and Men, John Steinbeck’s classic making its first Broadway revival in 40 years. James Franco and Chris O’Dowd both make their Broadway debuts as migrant workers looking for a better life. Maybe you’d prefer something lighter from the Roaring ’20s? There’s plenty of star power in Woody Allen’s Bullets Over Broadway, a high-energy musical adaptation directed by five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman and a cast that includes Zach Braff (Scrubs) and Vincent Pastore (The So-

Beautiful recreates King’s early years, when she was a teenaged hit songwriter for acts like the Shirelles, the Chiffons and other stars of the Brill Building in Manhattan. “It was extremely important to all of us that we keep the integrity of this music without trying to copy it,” says Jessie Mueller, who plays King. “The show definitely has its own style musically, but it has a reverence for the soul of the original tunes. The music is already ‘right,’ so we just have to interpret it with honesty.” “I think that people respond to a strong story, no matter when it’s set,” adds Bruni. “I think that what’s great about our show is that people are responding to the humanity of this empowerment story. It’s about a girl who comes into her own and discovers what it means to be herself and to be true to herself as an artist, and to succeed on her own.” “The characters and their experiences are universal,” says Mueller. “Growing up, fighting to find your place in a changing world and owning who you are—everyone can relate to that!

pranos). It’s a hilarious tale of an aspiring playwright who has to cast a mobster’s no-talent girlfriend in order to get his play produced. Perhaps you’d like something from the turn of the 20th century? Harvey Fierstein’s Newsies has been at the Nederlander Theatre since 2012, setting the 1899 newsboys strike to a pulsating score by Alan Menken. So, you may ask, what gives? Why has Broadway taken to mining the country’s history for its best productions? “We’re living in a moment of highly divided partisan politics,” says Bill Rauch, director of All the Way, which stars Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston as a wartsand-all Lyndon Johnson. “I think there’s a need to try to make sense of how we got here and how we can climb out of this particular hole we’re in. There’s a hunger to see how people worked across the congressional aisle and got things accomplished 50 years ago—even with sharply divided points of view. I think it really moves people and energizes people. Robert Schenkkan has created a truly Shakespearean character in LBJ. He’s just full of conflicting impulses, constantly shifting gears, and was a character of huge appetites. It’s quite remarkable, and Bryan bites into it.” “I think it’s really healthy,” says Tony Shalhoub of Broadway’s history craze. The Monk star portrays legendary playwright Moss Hart (as well as Hart’s collaborator George S. Kaufman) in Act One at Lincoln Center Theater. “It’s great for younger theater audiences to see it come to life like that, in a really immediate way. Movies do it very well, too; they can be very authentic. But there’s always that slight detachment. I feel that theater provides an immediate connection.” Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have a Hollywood legend in your production. The revival of Lorraine Hansberry’s classic A Raisin in the Run stars Oscar winner Denzel Washington as Walter Lee Younger, who desperately strives to improve his family’s life on Chicago’s South Side in the late-1950s. “It’s one of a handful of five or six great American plays,” says its director, Kenny Leon, “and it continues to give, you know?” “History certainly repeats itself,” adds Leon, “and I think that when we look at how Lorraine is writing about the housing market, she’s writing about pride in country, she’s writing about racism, she’s writing about education—universal themes that in the 1950s and 1960s were written about in big ways that make them sound immediate and specific to us. So over time these [things] have even greater impact on us because they were written 25, 30 years ago.” If dramas like Raisin tie us to the past, then jukebox musicals seal the deal. The success of Mamma Mia! and Jersey Boys have proven that. “Baby boomers are theatergoers who all grew up with these songs,” points out Marc Bruni, director of Beautiful—The Carole King Musical. “So there’s certainly a kind of pragmatic way of explaining it in that way.” IN New YORK | june 2014 |

sweet Sixties fashions, but the experiences are all the same! “To me, it was about finding the core of this amazing woman, who had an extraordinary gift but was shy about being the means to share it with the world. She’s fascinating because she is a brilliant songwriter, but never wanted to be up front. And thankfully for us, she came to peace with that and we’ve gotten to experience her music through her. It’s one of the things that make her so special. Her vulnerability became her strength.” In contrast, the tragic life of Billie Holiday is presented in Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill. Broadway legend Audra McDonald recreates Holiday’s timeless music as well as her rough offstage life. “She had a singular style,” points out director Lonny Price, “and was considered by her peers—Frank Sinatra, for example—as the finest singer of her generation. I hope it makes people think about our history—white and African-American history—in the first part of the last century, and how far—or not—we’ve come.” “Billie had a Dickensian life,” says Price, “but she had no self-pity. In fact, she used humor to get through. Telling some of the worst personal history imaginable and laughing at it was her survival. We looked for the humor and through it found the humanity of the woman.” “Among other things, it's an exploration of how we treat our celebrities these days who have addiction issues,” adds Price. “We build them up, watch them destroy themselves and then martyr them. But where are we when they are in crisis? We see them perform and watch them fall down. Sometimes, we abandon them on their downward spiral, and then rush to their funerals and talk about how sad it is that they died so young.” Most of these onstage history lessons use the past to evoke present-day emotions. But the song-and-dance revue After Midnight takes another tack. Director/choreographer Warren Carlyle uses the music of Duke Ellington and others as the soundtrack to a virtual history of popular dance, evoking the heyday of the Cotton Club. “I didn’t want to make a museum piece,” Carlyle insists. “I wanted to create this show through a 2014 lens—what would the best possible floor show be? What would it contain?

“Twenty-seven of the 29 numbers are staged and danced,” he says. “We have great tappers, great street dancers, great modern dancers. We have that kind of 1930s skrontch, which is kind of a Lindy dance. There are a million different styles of dance in the show.” Not to mention a million stars. In addition to the Jazz at Lincoln Center All-Stars, a 16-piece onstage big band organized by Wynton Marsalis, the show has seen the likes of Dulé Hill, Vanessa Williams, Fantasia, Toni Braxton and k.d. lang in various guest appearances. “It’s good, honest work,” cracks Carlyle. “We’re serving up the music of Duke Ellington for a whole new generation to enjoy.” Gazing up and down Broadway, it’s easy to think that today’s productions are enthusiastically adhering to Peter Allen’s adage that “everything old is new again.” Collectively, they’re sending a message that we should not only learn from the past, but cherish the good times as well. It might be a dramatist using past events to comment on today, or a singer plucking our heartstrings with a cherished melody from our childhood. In any case, playwrights and composers have found an effective way to connect with their audiences by tapping into our collective memories and hopes. “You have a community sitting in the dark,” according to A Raisin in the Sun’s Kenny Leon, “and hopefully we can shed some light on the way we’re living our lives.” “When you can no longer speak,” says Warren Carlyle, “you sing. And when you can no longer sing, you dance.” In other words, whether in the past or present, today’s Broadway has a new and inventive way to take you anywhere you like.

b Discovering New York’s Hidden Alleys, Mews and Corners. By Walecia Konrad New York is a city of surprises and none is more gratifying than the hidden cobblestoned street or pocket park filled with history, architecture and restoring calm, just steps from an otherwise cacophonous sidewalk. Suss out these serendipitous curves and corners of what can otherwise be a fairly predictable street grid and know that you may be exploring uncharted territory even the most diehard New Yorkers haven’t yet claimed as their own. While you’re in the Financial District to see the Stock Exchange or the National September 11 Memorial Museum, be sure to stroll down Stone St. (near the Whitehall subway stop, adjacent to 85 Broad St.). This cobblestoned, pedestrian street—filled with outdoor picnic tables, taverns and restaurants in the shadow of the Financial District’s skyscrapers—offers a rare glimpse of what Dutch New York must have looked like. The historic buildings along Stone, South William and Pearl sts. make up the Stone Street Historic District, with architecture dating back hundreds of years. If it’s hidden streets and passageways you’re after, you’ll get delightfully lost in Chinatown. Head to Mott and Pell sts., the heart of this district. These narrow roads, lined with shops, restaurants, hanging Peking ducks and tea salons, will transport you to Hong Kong or Shanghai. For great souvenirs, skip the fake Gucci bags and windup toys from sidewalk vendors and stop

in at the easy-to-miss Yunghong Chopsticks Shop (50 Mott St., 212.566.8828) for an amazing selection of beautifully crafted chopsticks. Try out your purchase around the corner at Joe’s Shanghai (9 Pell St., 212.233.8888) for soup dumplings so good the line is often out the door. Although there’s plenty of pagoda gold and New Year’s red in Chinatown, it can be hard to find some green. Be sure to make your way to Columbus Park (67 Mulberry St.), where Chinese musicians vie for space and mah-jongg-playing neighbors, speaking barely a word of English, can be overheard. A bit uptown, in the heart of Greenwich Village, is Washington Mews (btw Fifth Ave. and University Pl., one block north of Washington Square Park), one of the city’s last open-to-the-public mews. The term refers to what were once horse stables and carriage houses, now housing and offices for New York University. From the mews, head to MacDougal St. with its one-ofa-kind village shops and restaurants, including Minetta Tavern (113 MacDougal St., 212.475.3850), where E.E. Cummings, Ernest Hemingway, Eugene O’Neill and others hung out. Look for MacDougal Alley (east off of MacDougal St., btw W. 8th St. and Waverly Pl./Washington Sq. No.), another charming street of former stables. (Jackson Pollock lived in apartment No. 9.)

From the alley head west, and we mean west—through Sheridan Sq. then down Charles St.—to get an idea of what locals mean when they say the Far West Village. Between Washington St. and West St. lies Charles Lane. Originally home to several stables, this unusually narrow road, paved with stones, was once the north side of the Newgate State Prison, a massive structure that dominated the area from 1797 to the 1820s. Berenice Abbott photographed the lane in far less prosperous times during the 1930s, adding to the history of what was once called Pig Alley. The lane spills out onto the West Side Highway, across which lie miles of newly renovated bike and running paths, parks and other recreational attractions. On your way back, stop for tapas or paella at Sevilla (62 Charles St., 212.929.3189), a West Village institution.

Seeing the sights and shops in Midtown? Relax for a while at one of the city’s dozens of pocket parks snuggled in walkways behind or between skyscrapers. Paley Park (3 E. 53rd St., btw Madison and Fifth aves.), named for Samuel Paley, father of former CBS head William S. Paley (junior also paid for the park), is one of the more notable spots, thanks to the waterfall that blocks street noise and adds to the charm. When you find yourself farther uptown, on the Upper West Side, and you’ve had your museum fix at the American Museum of Natural History and the NewYork Historical Society, head outside for a stroll down W. 89th St., btw Columbus and Amsterdam aves., and walk through the West Side Community Garden (142 W. 89th St.). One of the few community gardens with open gates all day, this well-planted and spacious oasis is a serene spot to quite literally smell the flowers. Keep heading north to W. 100th St., one block west of Central Park, and you’ll encounter the start of Manhattan Ave. Walk north along the length of this Manhattan Valley thoroughfare, noting the historic row houses along the way. Starting at 110th St. and up to 123rd St., Manhattan Ave. is just one block west of Morningside Park. One of the most scenic New York City parks, Morningside sports dramatic landscaping, clifflike hillsides and a waterfall amid ball fields and walking paths. All the way downtown, on the southern tip of Manhattan Island, you can cross the Brooklyn Bridge and walk along the promenade in Brooklyn Heights. Head just a few blocks in to Grace Court Alley (off Clark St., btw Joralemon and Remsen sts.). The former row of stables for nearby Grace Church is one of the most charming blocks in Gotham. Also, check out nearby Love Lane and College Pl. for two more hidden residential architectural gems. Nearby Montague St. hosts shops and restaurants as vibrant as you’ll find across the East River. Finally, you can’t enter the locked gates of these two historic Manhattan alleyways, but, if you’re in the neighborhood, the architecture and history are worth a peek: Sniffen Court (E. 36th St., btw Third and Lexington aves. in the Murray Hill neighborhood). You can get a terrific view of this mews through the gates on E. 36th St. Then head to Lexington Ave. to sample some of the best of New York City’s Indian food in what is popularly dubbed “Curry Hill.” Pomander Walk (btw W. 94th and W. 95th sts. and Broadway and West End Ave.) is named after a romantic comedy of the same name (the show played on Broadway in 1910: Most of the buildings on Pomander Walk were built in 1921). The Tudor-style residences have been home to several Broadway and Hollywood stars throughout the years.

brooklyn beat In and Around Park Slope Crawford is the founder of Only the Blog Knows Brooklyn, a popular blog covering arts and culture, food and drink, shopping, civics and urban life in Brooklyn. She moved to Park Slope in 1991 and has seen the borough morph from the outer borough to the “it-borough.” From 2005-2010, she wrote the Smartmom column about parenting and modern life for The Brooklyn Paper. She runs Brooklyn Social Media, which provides public relations and social media services for authors and entrepreneurs.

A restaurant opened in 2004 by two childhood friends named Josh, Stone Park Cafe offers an upscale dining experience in the heart of Park Slope. Highlighting fresh, seasonal and local ingredients, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch include American specialties like roasted chicken; grilled heritage pork chop; squid ink tagliatelle with Gulf shrimp, pancetta, scallions, and chipotle peppers; and the Stone Park Burger with cheese, mushrooms and bacon. Plus, there’s always something for vegans and vegetarians (It is Brooklyn, after all). | Stone Park Cafe, 324 Fifth Ave., Brooklyn, 718.369.0082

For more on Brooklyn, go to

The Old Stone House

Learn about the Battle of Brooklyn, the largest battle of the American Revolution, at this stately museum off Park Slope’s Fifth Ave. Housed in a Colonial-style stone house, it is also steps from where the Brooklyn Dodgers first played baseball when they were just a farm team known as the Brooklyn Trolley Dodgers. On the grounds of the museum, there’s an innovative playground, with water-shooting cannons and other structures depicting Revolutionary America. | The Old Stone House, 336 3rd St., Brooklyn, 718.768.3195

Diana Kane

Diana Kane’s self-named shop is just like her: small, stylish and design-conscious. Unique items include a pair of diamond, sterling silver and 22-karat yellow gold ball earrings; and green amethyst pendants on rose and taupe silk ribbons, designed by Diana, as well as jewelry and accessories by a short list of Brooklyn’s best artisans. The shop also features elegant lingerie, shoes and sandals, scarves, lavender and oatmeal soaps and Aki Kano’s beautifully crafted, soft, buttery leather bags. | Diana Kane, 229 5th Ave., Brooklyn, 718.638.6520
