In the late 80s and early 90s, the streets of downtown Manhattan were the site of a collision between two vibrant subcultures: skateboarding and hip hop. Narrated by Zoo York co-founder Eli Gesner with an original score by legendary hip-hop producer Large Professor (Nas, A Tribe Called Quest), All the Streets Are Silent brings to life the magic of the time period and the convergence that created a style and visual language that would have an outsized and enduring cultural effect. From the DJ booths and dance floors of the Mars nightclub to the founding of brands like Supreme, this convergence would lay the foundation for modern street style. Paris Is Burning meets Larry Clark’s KIDS, All the Streets Are Silent is a love letter to New York–examining race, society, fashion, and street culture.Find Out More

Please join us for the kickoff screening of The Soul of A Farmer, a benefit for Early Girl Farm. The documentary follows the farm’s owner, Patty Gentry, a former chef, as she battles the elements on her three acres in Bellport, Long Island.
As actor Isabella Rossellini, Patty’s landlord, tells us in the film: “Patty is the Picasso of vegetables!”
The film upends the romance of farm-to-table. Sure, buying fresh produce at farmers markets and farmstands is wonderful. But the farmer’s life is a constant struggle. We watch Patty work her butt off (with her small, mostly female team) seven days a week, growing the vegetables her top chef clients treasure. Such clients as Missy Robbins of Lilia, and Misi; Andrew Tarlow of Marlow & Sons, and Roman’s; and Sohui Kim of The Good Fork and Gage & Tollner—all in Brooklyn, and Stone Creek Inn in East Quogue.
Patty’s passion is to constantly improve her soil, her yield of organic vegetables, and just as urgently she’s always thinking of how to stay afloat.
The film is directed by Roger Sherman, whose films have won two Academy Award nominations, an Emmy, a Peabody, and a James Beard Award; he is a founder of Florentine Films.
The film runs 35 minutes and will be followed by a Talk Back with Patty and Roger, and a champagne reception in the garden.Find Out More

In it, styles like son jarocho, norteño, Tejano, folk and country, doo-wop, soul, and R&B blend with rock ’n’ roll and punk to create a new sound that’s greater than the sum of its parts. Los Lobos has enjoyed critical success, winning the Grammy® for Best Mexican-American Performance for Anselma from its 1983 EP …And a Time to Dance. A year later, the group released its full-length, major-label debut, How Will the Wolf Survive? Co-produced by T. Bone Burnett, the album was a college rock sensation that helped Los Lobos tie with Bruce Springsteen as Rolling Stone’s Artist of the Year 1984.Find Out More
The Spin Doctors are the last men standing, still making music like their lives depend on it. Thirty years. It’s an eternity in rock ‘n’ roll, and a marathon for the bands who fly its tattered flag.

As a songwriter, Andy’s approach is simple. “I simply sit and observe what I see in the world around me and put it to music. I’ve gravitated towards certain observations that I hope others might relate to as well.”
