Fall Famous Flicks: At Rockefeller Park

We always appreciate our great neighborhood - and Battery Park City's 50th anniversary is now being celebrated with a fun fall film series!

Movies shot in Manhattan during the last 50 years are paired with cartoons and shorts that feature New York City.

It's free to watch these captivating combos Fridays at 7pm, at the beautiful setting of Rockefeller Park.
