  • Weekend Arts Planner: The 60th New York Film Festival, jousting in Manhattan and provocative art at the Queens Museum
    WNYC Culture and Arts Editor, Steve Smith joins us once again. Speaking with Weekend Edition host David Furst, he brings us his latest arts picks: 1. The 60th annual New York Film Festival kicked off this weekend, launching two very full weeks of movies and events taking place all over town. There's a lot to take in this year, including a handful of screenings at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria. Admittedly, there's very little chance of scoring some of the festival's hottest tickets – good luck getting into Noah Baumbach's adaptation of Don DeLillo's "White Noise," Joanna Hogg's "The Eternal Daughter," or Kelly Reichardt's "Showing Up." But you'll still have plenty of opportunities to catch such wildly diverse films as Claire Denis's "Stars at Noon," Park Chan-Wook's "Decision to Leave," Jafar Panahi's "No Bears," and Hong Sangsoo's "The Novelist's Film." And tickets are still available for this weekend's world premiere of "Till,"  Chinonye Chukwu's film biography of Emmett Till and his mother, Mamie Till-Mobley. The festival runs through Oct. 16, and you can learn more at Film at Lincoln Center. 2. If you'd prefer to be outdoors and you're open to a trek, consider heading up to the Medieval Festival at Fort Tryon, in Hudson Heights and Inwood. The festival is back after a two-year pandemic hiatus, and you'll see jugglers, jesters, and jousters – and yes, you heard that correctly: fights between knights on horseback. You'll hear period-appropriate live music, and crafts, clothing, and food will all be available. One tip: Come prepared, because the park doesn't have any ATM's available and you definitely don't want to have to barter for a turkey leg. That's happening on Sunday, Oct. 2 from 11:30 a.m.–6:00 p.m., and admission is free. (Regarding the weather: Organizers told Gothamist that the fest will happen rain or shine, unless there’s thunder and lightning.) 3. If you like art that poses provocative questions, then the Queens Museum in Flushing Meadows Corona Park has the show for you: "Crisis Makes a Book Club." The exhibition features work by Xaviera Simmons, a native New Yorker who employs photography, video, painting, sound art and more to confront heated issues like white supremacy, wealth stratification and the historic U.S. urge toward empire-building. Simmons is creating new original works for this show, while also designing active interventions in the museum's galleries and billboard-size displays for its exterior facade. There's an opening reception for this show and another new opening, featuring art by Charisse Pearlina Weston, this Sunday, Oct. 2 from 1 to 5 p.m., including family art-making workshops and food vendors from the Queens Night Market. The exhibitions run through March 5, and you can learn more at The Queens Museum.

  • Bronx-born disco-era singer and producer Richie Weeks steps back into the spotlight with a collection of unheard tracks
    Back in 1981, a disco act called Weeks & Company burned up discos around the world with songs like “Rock Your World." Singer, songwriter and producer Richie Weeks would work late into the night recording songs and performing in legendary nightclubs like Paradise Garage and Studio 54 – and then head in to punch the clock for his day job at the Post Office. When disco cooled down, Weeks pursued his living elsewhere. But now, a new series of previously unheard private recordings is bringing him fresh recognition. Speaking from his home in Newark, Weeks talks to Michael Hill about his days as The Love Magician, and what made him decide to start releasing tracks from his private trove of 300 vintage tapes.

  • New York mayor migrant tents raises questions about NYC’s right to shelter mandate
    Mayor Eric Adams’ administration recently announced its decision to temporarily house asylum seekers from South America in massive tent facilities. The mayor says the tents would take the pressure off the city's straining shelter system, where more than half of the 15,000 asylum seekers that have arrived since the spring are residing. But the sprawling white tents filled with cots may breach the city's long standing legal obligations to provide shelter to anybody who seeks it. A tent facility for adult asylum seekers is being built at Orchard Beach in the Bronx. A second facility will primarily house families, but its location has not been announced. Josh Goldfein is a staff attorney for the Legal Aid Society, a non-profit legal group that assists low-income families and individuals. He sat down with WNYC’s Sean Carlson to discuss the city’s decision to temporarily house migrants from the southern border in large tents.
