Stargazing on the High Line, Tuesdays Between Dusk and 9:45pm | Members of the Amateur Astronomers Association take you through the paces of peering through high-powered telescopes to see rare celestial sights. This free program takes place on the High Line at 13th St. just south of The Standard Hotel. Overcast conditions or inclement weather may cause cancellation. If a session needs to be cancelled, a post will appear on @highlinenyc’s Twitter feed by 3pm on the day of the event. For more info, click here.
Spring Fling Celebration at Chelsea Green Park: Sunday, May 15, 11am-1pm at Chelsea Green (140 W. 20th St. btw. 6th & 7th Aves.) | Friends of Chelsea Green celebrate the annual appearance of longer days and warmer weather by welcoming you to Chelsea Green–the much-needed, hard-won little park that scores big with scads of kids, parents, and others who flock to this popular patch of peace and play. See the below flyer for details.
Sanitation Survey | The NYC Comptroller’s office wants to hear about the quality of sanitation services in your neighborhood. Click here to take the survey, and you’ll be able to provide feedback on matters including organic waste collection, the relative cleanliness of your neighborhood, and whether or not the past year has seen you deal with issues such as missed trash collection, overflowing street litter baskets, illegal dumping, rat infestation, derelict vehicles, or a sidewalk obstructed by trash.
