Cuban Arts Festival in New York, May 1 - 31, 2005!
Cuban arts are flourishing in the city, and the Cuban Artists Fund (CAF) is proud to support this vibrant cultural scene by
organizing the month-long Cuban Arts Festival in May 2005. The festival, now celebrating its third year, will provide New
Yorkers the opportunity to interact with Cuban artists and experience innovative work that brings artistic expression to new
and exciting levels. Participants will enjoy live Cuban music, see first-rate exhibitions and films, and attend lectures and
panels by prominent Cuban writers and poets. No other event presents such a diverse and comprehensive view of the
Cuban artistic community from Cuba to the diaspora.

Fleet Week
Many of the exciting Fleet Week activities that have become synonymous with the event are staged at the
Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, while others are scheduled throughout the five boroughs of New York.

In partnership with New York City, the United States Navy and the Intrepid Museum, over a dozen Navy
and Coast Guard ships as well as ships from all over the world visit New York Harbor each Fleet Week.
The visiting Fleet Week vessels are open for free public tours daily. There are also military demonstrations,
athletic competitions and many other exciting activities over the course of the seven-day celebration.

One highlight of the week’s activities is the Memorial Day ceremony held on the flight deck of the Intrepid.
Veterans and active military personnel from all five branches of the armed services join in the museum’s
tribute to the men and women who have made the supreme sacrifice for their country. The ceremony
includes the playing of Taps, a ceremonial wreath laying, 21-gun salute, the unfurling of a 100 foot
American flag and a fly-over of military aircraft in the missing man formation.

Some other Fleet Week event favorites include the Parade of Ships, stem-to-stern relay race and tug-of-war
crew competitions, live demonstrations of military skills, and the Best Chow Competition.

Fleet Week 2005 will be from May 25th through May 31st. Check back as the dates get closer for the
Museum’s special hours and schedule of daily events.

New York City's 4th of July Fireworks is one of Macy's great gifts to the people of NYC. To mark the
country's birthday the 2004 fireworks will take place at three locations this year:


        along the East River between 23rd and 42nd Streets


        at South Street Seaport


        between the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island


Entitled Beneath a Summer Sky, this year's celebration features New York City fireboats boosting red, white
and blue water sprays 300 feet into the air plus, at about 8:00P, a flyover by four US Air Force A-10 jets.
These tank-killer aircraft will thrill you to no end as buzz over each of the display locations


Schedule
7:30P FDNY Fireboat Water Show
8:00P USAF A-10 Flyover
9:00P Television broadcast
9:20P Fireworks Display

East River
To see the fireworks all you need is an apartment with a view of the East River, or a friend who has one.
Just kidding, any place in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens with a halfway decent view of the East River will
give you loads of enjoyment. In Manhattan, the southbound lane of the FDR Drive will be open to the public
from 14th to 42nd Streets. If you're not going to one of those great Manhattan parties this is your best bet.
Areas under and around the FDR that are normally open to the public are restricted for this event


Be sure to go before you go. There are no public facilities provided on the FDR Drive and the crowds make
it impossible to hop over to 1st Avenue to pick up something with which to quench your thirst. Once you are
on the Drive you are there for the duration; be sure to make a rest stop beforehand and to pack along a
couple of bottles of water. If it's convenient, bring folding chairs and a small cooler. Public access to the FDR
will be at 23rd, 38th and 42nd Streets. Access to many blocks around the area is restricted, so be sure to
give yourself enough time to get a good spot, try to arrive about 7:00P




                                                                                                                29
Pedestrian access to the FDR for the Midtown part of the show is at 23rd Street, 38th Street and 42nd Street
only


Our favorite location to view the fireworks is on the FDR Drive at 34th Street. You have barges to the left of
you, barges to the right of you, barges in front of you. The shells burst right over your head; you feel the
BOOOOM! way down in your stomach. The best way to get to this location is not the 34th Street entrance --
though many people assume so, there isn't any! Instead, leave early and use the 38th Street entrance to the
FDR. From Grand Central walk east towards the River along 42nd Street. Keep to the right! You want to use
the on ramp that starts at 38th Street, not the ramp that runs along the South side of the United Nations, this
does not provide access all the way through. Crowd control measures change from year-to-year and specific
street openings and access points might change. If you can't get to where you want to go don't try to buck
the crowd; go with the flow and make the best of the situation


Once on top of the FDR drive at 38th Street you'll hit a pretty big crowd -- people get lazy and tend to stop at
the first available spot -- if you make it through, you'll find that the crowd thins appreciably and the FDR is
almost empty when you hit 34th Street. Don't hurry after the show, you are not going to get anywhere
quickly. Relax and wait until the crowd thins enough to stroll off the Drive


In Queens the best bet is in the Hunter's Point - Borden Avenue areas. Try to sneak in as close to the shore
as possible, preferably down towards 54th and 55th Avenues (Don't trespass!). And Don't Drive! If you arrive
early and happen to find a parking space, please believe us -- through hard-learned experience -- that it will
take you at least an hour to get out of the area after the show is over


In Brooklyn try to get near the old pier areas between Kent and Eagle Streets in Greenpoint. Even better, try
for a spot in the small park at the head of Newton Creek


South Street
For the Downtown show we've been told that any place south of the Brooklyn Bridge would a view of the sky
should do. Prime locations on the Manhattan side should be Pier 17 at South Street Seaport, and anywhere
along the water as far down as Pier 6, opposite Coenties Slip (though we don't know how limited the access
is going to be in those areas)


Pedestrian access to the FDR is from Pearl Street only


In Brooklyn, we'd probably just head for the Esplanade or try for a spot down along Furman Street


Statue of Liberty
Liberty State Park is the place to be. If you're from Jersey, you better know how to get there ('cause we sure
as heck don't)
