    It wasn't worth the money. The costumes were great and so were the actors but they could have done a better job. It was NOT scary and you will be disappointed. (Haunted Hayride)

    Come run the Urban Mudder when it's on. Try not to do it during the hottest part of the day.

    Free movie night in the summer, not nearly as crowded as the other free movie events in NYC. And fewer bugs at night because of the breeze off the water!

    Did you know that you have to walk 2.5 miles from Randall's Island Park to the Apollo Theater to burn off the calories from one 32oz. sports drink?

    Memorable not because Electric Zoo '10 was the greatest music festival. Memorable because of how dirty we felt afterwards from all the dust. Black boogers galore!
