Food, nature, history, and sports! This week's events in New York City cover it all. With cuisine, you have the Creative Kitchen Kids Food Festival in the Financial District, or the Indonesian Street Festival on the Upper East Side. With sports, you have Arthur Ashe Kids Day in Queens, and the South Slope Derby in Brooklyn. History is covered by the Battle of Brooklyn commemoration in Green-Wood Cemetery, and nature is covered by birdhouse building on Staten Island.
Don't forget the arts! See a rare screening of Hayao Miyazaki's Castle in the Sky, or sing with Emily Eagen in Carroll Gardens. Stick around in Brooklyn with our new guide to Clinton Hill and Fort Greene. Check a few things off that "before school starts" summer bucket list—or start planning for fall: Tickets for Smithsonian Museum Day Live, offering FREE access to museums all around the city on September 23, are available to download beginning August 25. Get 'em before they're gone!
