This free play reading series kicks off with a rollicking, irreverent comedy by playwright Lojo Simon. Relic tells the story of an out-of-work actor, read by Nick Fondulis, who discovers one of the world’s greatest relics in his grandmother’s attic. His find brings him fame and fortune, but he quickly realizes that is not all he wants. The new comedy explores the cult of celebrity, religion and idolatry.

During this gardening club tweens can build agriculturalist, survivalist, and naturalist skills while working on environmental stewardship projects in the park. They will learn what plants need, and why they need them. During each session they will garden in the APEC greenhouse to the “beet” of musical genres from classical to pop, from hip-hop to bebop.

The Sunnyside Gardens and the Jackson Heights Historic Districts anchor the route which also includes Phipps Gardens, Matthews Flats, Metropolitan Life apartments, and early truck-oriented industrial buildings. Meet under the Sunnyside arch (South side Queens Blvd. at 46 St., #7 to 46 St.)
Walk 2: Jackson Heights To Sunnyside
After immigration laws were overhauled in 1965, Queens’ middle class rental neighborhoods with good subway access became desirable to many skilled new immigrant communities. The route will highlight the commercial components of Mexican, South American, South Asian, Himalayan, Thai, Irish, and Turkish communities. Meet at 83 St./Roosevelt Ave. (Manuel de Dios Unanue Triangle, #7 to 82 St.)
