Seen & Heard: Taylor Swift reveals her new facade

ESCAPE CLIMATE CHANGE
This is a wacky idea, but for the first three weekends in September, the Human Impacts Institute will present the Climate Change Escape Room on Governors Island in Nolan Park. Participants will be tasked with puzzles and clues relating to solar, wind, recycling and other aspects of sustainability in order to change the course of climate change in NYC. The event is free, but you should reserve a time slot here.

A team of parkour coaches from The Movement Creative will use games and obstacles to get kids moving around the built environment on several Saturdays this fall: Sept. 14, Oct. 5 and 12, from 11a to noon at the Brookfield Plaza. All levels welcome, recommended for ages 7-13.
