We're celebrating parks, science, and a certain favorite honey-eating bear this week in NYC. Catch a FREE outdoor performance by the legendary Radio City Rockettes as they get ready for the holiday season; celebrate the 100th anniversary of our national parks with a day of family activities in Brooklyn Bridge Park, including an event with Bill Nye the Science Guy; and visit with Winnie the Pooh and his pals now that they're back home on 42nd Street.
Take the kids to an interactive magic show with Gary the Great, or burn off some energy with a free drop-in sports program in Sunset Park.
