A boat tour of the Brooklyn waterfront and NY Harbor is offered by Open House NY and the Working Harbor Committee. Tickets.

Carl Hiaasen will be at the UES Barnes & Noble, 150 E. 86th [Lex/3rd] on on Tuesday, July 27th, 7pm, doing a reading from his new book Star Island, followed by a Q & A.

indie rock… Friday: Breezy pop Best Coast and Free Energy [Photo: Cass Bird] play for free at South Street Seaport. Sunday: Emo-punk legends Cap'n Jazz reunite for a free show at Williamsburg Waterfront. Just Announced… 10/11: Broken Bells. 11/3: Blonde Redhead. 11/7: Guided By Voices.

shopping… Native New Yorker Laura Stark has three lines of jewelry—Signature, Bridal, and Downtown—and we like all of them. Prices from $60-$160.

books… Publishers love subtitles even more than martinis—The Fall of the House of Walworth uses A Tale of Murder and Madness in Saratoga's Gilded Age—and that's pretty darn irresistible. Alexandra Lebenthal's The Recessionistas, set in Manhattan, is 'A novel of the once rich and powerful' (out 8/9). Jennifer Belle's comic novel The Seven Year Bitch, about a NYC woman facing a midlife crisis, doesn't have a subtitle and doesn't need one.

architecture… One of the (many) pleasures to be found on Governors Island this year is the Living Pavilion, designed by Ann Ha and Behrang Behin, winners of a competition sponsored by FIGMENT. Learn about its design process at an AIA exhibition opening Monday, August 2nd, 6:30pm. [Left image: Nolan Rhodes; Right image: SpatialK]

movies… At Symphony Space, Hi-Def Hitch: the first time that seven of his classics will be big-screened in high definition. The movies are Topaz, Vertigo, The Birds, Rear Window, The Trouble with Harry, Frenzy, and Torn Curtain. Starts Saturday. 

First Avenue (from 2008)
