New York City Dept. of Parks - web site

The New York City Dept. of Parks and Recreation has a web site that is very useful for finding out about many free events that take place throughout NYC.

You can start on the Things to Do page, but our favorite is the upcoming Concerts, Performances, and Films page.

Want to learn how to play petanque? ("A close relative of bocce and a distant cousin of horseshoes.")

How about a two-hour boat ride along the Hudson featuring an on-board lecture by Joyce Gold about the history of the waterfront neighborhoods .. with dinner .. for $20?

Or maybe you'd prefer to "sample regional cuisine from neighborhood restaurants, picnic on the grass as the sun sets over the city, enjoy performances by local musicians and dancers and, as the sky darkens, see exceptional international films on a large format screen - all set against the spectacular backdrop of the Manhattan skyline."?

These are only 3 among hundreds and hundreds of events listed.
