If you think Halloween is child’s play, you may be in need of something a little more hardcore. Kostume Kult is all about being absurd and creative and wearing a costume. All. The. Time. The art collective hosts theme events and is involved in public festivals and underground art parties ranging from the Halloween Parade, Burning Man, the Mermaid Parade, Santacon, and Zombiecon.
Take a trip back in time to 1920s Berlin, Paris, or Shanghai. These ongoing events pay homage to the nightlife experiences of these legendary “sin cities.” Dances of Vice also hosts frequent pirate-themed and burlesque-themed cruises. Events are heavy on pageantry and surrealism.
Despite all the complaints that NYC has no “outdoors,” there are people who live here who know that's just not true. Mappy Hour is a monthly gathering of outdoor enthusiasts who come together over maps, beer, and tales from the road. Often the Mappy Hours involve something active and you can get up to speed on all the adventure activities going on in and around NYC.
