Ah, Brooklyn: City of Romance, City of Light. Or at least, it will be this weekend (The second part. The first part totally depends how excited about contemporary art you are). For NYC’s contribution to the Nuit Blanche project — which started as an art all-nighter in Paris 10 years ago and now takes places in cities across the world — our little Greenpoint will be transformed into a free nighttime marathon of public art set against the Manhattan skyline. From 6pm Saturday through 1am Sunday, “Bring to Light” will feature a menagerie of site-specific installations by emerging and established artists. The 50+ participants will “re-imagine public space and civic life” through light, sound, performance, and projection, giving you a glimpse at the city like you haven’t seen it before. Bonus: the festival’s arranged to keep the East River Ferry running every 15 minutes ‘till around midnight for a much-appreciated alternative to the G. Have you taken that thing yet? Do it! Waterways are the future.

Still, after you’ve been cocooned in down coats watching Netflix for months, maybe you still haven’t gotten that old fashioned mojo back. Not to worry- bars have […]
