March Book Launch

Brooklyn Public Library, Central Branch : 7:00 p.m. April 8

In the 1940s, Superman fought the Klan, as the creators of the Superman radio show subjected the hate group to the scorn it deserved. But it took another hero to inspire a young John Lewis with a comic book: Dr. Martin Luther King, in 1957's The Montgomery Story. Now Congressman Lewis has... More >>

Kehinde Wiley, only 38 years old but with a career spanning 14 years, already has his own retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum, and rightly so.

Yankees Home Opener

Yankee Stadium : 1:00 p.m. April 6

Before you despair about the Yankees' upcoming season, keep two things in mind: First, there is no clear favorite in the A.L. East this year; the Orioles, who owned last year, lost a lot of power. The Red Sox and Blue Jays have acquired some gaudy free agents, but there's still no clear... More >>

Hip-Hop Revolution

Museum of the City of New York : 10:00 a.m. daily until September 13

Jazz was invented in New Orleans, and London has some claim to punk (or so the Brits insist), but hip-hop is all New York's own.

This Is for Everyone: Design Experiments for the Common Good

Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) : 10:00 a.m. every 7 days until January 1

Kill City: Lower East Side Squatters 1992-2000

PowerHouse Arena : 6:00 p.m. April 2

Squatting gets a bad rap, legal-wise, but drifting by it is not. Between 1992 and 2000, the infamous squatters of the LES — a very different, derelict, drug-addled LES — became tired of sitting on long, fruitless low-income housing waitlists and decided to build their own homes in... More >>

When the Curtain Never Comes Down

American Folk Art Museum : 12:00 p.m. daily until July 5

Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival

Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church : 10:00 a.m. April 5

Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) : 10:30 a.m. daily until July 19

In 1955, the MoMA exhibited a ten-year survey called "Latin American Architecture Since 1945." You can imagine how much building in Latin America has expanded, parsed down, twisted, and gone beyond the imaginations of anybody who saw that original exhibit 60 years ago. Latin America in... More >>

Cock Sparrer

Warsaw : 7:00 p.m. April 11

Back in 1976, the young punks in Cock Sparrer coulda been the next Sex Pistols, but they famously wouldn't cut their hair into a punk style for Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren (another story has the reason as McLaren wouldn't buy them a second round of beers). Yet, as any punk worth her Docs... More >>

Life at the Limits: Stories of Amazing Species

American Museum of Natural History : 10:00 a.m. daily from April 4 until January 3
