• A Picnic with Jaws

    Hunter's Point South Park

    Join us as we relish one of the worst/best shark movies out there while picnicking in the park. Just over the river into Queens, Hunter's Point South Park shows movies with Manhattan as a dramatic backdrop for the screen which is perfect for Jaws as you can see in the photo. The movie is free & begins at sunset. Bring drinks* for yourself & some food to share. You can make or buy the food, but it would be lovely if it was global in flavor (e.g., Italian cookies from Whole Foods). And don't forget to bring a blanket to sit on. TO GET THERE: Take the 7 train one stop into Queens to the Vernon-Jackson stop. -OR- Jump on the NYC ferry from along the east side of Manhattan as far north as E. 34th St. or as far south as Wall Street/Pier 11. There's also routes in Queens & Brooklyn along the water as far north as Astoria or as far south as DUMBO. Depending upon your route, get off at Hunters Point South or Long Island City Gantry Plaza. (The fare on the ferry is just $2.75—the same price as the subway. See the routes here: https://www.ferry.nyc/routes-and-schedules/) *IS ALCOHOL LEGAL IN THE PARK? Alcohol is illegal in the park, HOWEVER, the city has decriminalized minor infractions such as drinking alcohol in public so many people do drink there.

All divers are welcome! Just make sure to RSVP.
