This Week on MNN: Summer in the Parks

If you’re looking for how to have fun in NYC Parks MNN Community Producers are here to show you how. Join us as we take a look at some fun in the sun at NYC parks. 

Junk and Jam Live with funny and colorful host Christopher Albert aims to enrich audiences with humorous monologues and sketches while introducing us to NYC artists of all genres. In this special episode Christopher welcomes world-renowned, site-specific installation & multidisciplinary artist Abigail DeVille to talk about her past installation at Madison Square Park in NYC "Light of Freedom." Watch this inspiring conversation only on MNN. 

Red Carpet Events host Amelia Moore travels the city in search of the latest music, sports and culture events. This episode brings her to the legendary Holcombe Rucker Park for the Rucker Streetball 2022 opening game. Join Amelia as she talks with NBA superstar Donovan Mitchell, commentators Mic Larry and Rell Jones, NYC’s Murder Inc. CEO and more.  

Totally Cool has been airing on MNN for over 25 years. Producer Richard Redna has brought MNN viewers to some of the most exclusive fashion runways, after-parties and shows that NYC has to offer. This Week on MNN Richard brings his cameras to The Central Park Skate Circle just west of the East 72nd street entrance. The skaters gather every Sunday in the Summer for rolling and dancing in the park. As the skaters would say “Where there's a wheel there’s a way”   

Martial Arts Universe showcases martial arts events, styles and instructors from around the world. In April host Gregory Mosley attended World Tai Chi day in The Naumburg Bandshell in Central Park. The event was hosted by film producer Warrington Hudlin and King fu Sifu Carl Albright. Join us for a show filled with martial arts demonstrations and learn about the health benefits of Tai Chi.
