Weekend Staff Picks: Tunnels, Tours & Punk
Saturday, August 10, 2013
Here are some tips from WNYC staff members on what to do this weekend.
ANDREA BERNSTEIN, metro editor: The Voice Tunnel is part of the city's Summer Streets when nearly seven miles of roadway is free of cars and allows for leisure activities. In the Park Avenue Tunnel, you can record your voice and hear it played on speakers located throughout the tunnel. Check out Andrea's video of the Voice Tunnel and an interview with the artist, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer.
COLLIN CAMPBELL, executive producer of new content: Collin maps out activities near Citibike docking stations. He says you can spend an entire afternoon or evening visiting different neighborhoods, restaurants or bars all while using a Citibike. "It's a great way to go on a date," said Collin.
BRIGID BERGIN, WNYC reporter: Brigid misses the punk scene that used to dominate the neighborhood she lives in, so she's planning to check out the Costume Institute Exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Punk: Chaos to Couture. But you better hurry, because it closes next weekend.
