NY’s Green Mutant Teenagers Celebrate 25 Years
Scouting NY recently celebrated its fifth birthday!! That's five years and over 650 posts dedicated to exploring New York's mysteries and hidden treasures. Plenty more articles to post coming soon, but this is the the one time of the year when I politely ask, with hat in hand:
If you’re a fan of Scouting NY and have enjoyed my work over the past year, would you consider making a donation to help me make my first movie? If you think I do a good job with my site, all I can say is that I’ve been working a thousand times as hard on my movie, and literally every penny counts. And you even get a special Scouting NY sticker/magnet as a thank-you gift! Click here to donate!
Yesterday, the Empire State building was lit up green for Earth Day. Tonight (Thursday, April 23), it will also be green, but for an entirely different reason, ironically celebrating an event that could have never occurred on a clean planet…
It’s the 25th anniversary of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
Anyone born pre-1980 will probably groan at this, but for children of the 80′s, you should get a slight ping of nostalgia to see the Turtles honored on the tallest building in Manhattan. You should also start feeling old.
Also celebrating the anniversary is the Tribeca Film Festival, which will be showing the live-action 1990 film TONIGHT for FREE at the World Financial Center Plaza! Not only will the Turtles and April O’Neil make a live appearance, but the plaza itself is going to be decorated like their underground sewer lair, complete with a real Party Wagon(!) for all to explore. There will be face-painting, live karate demos, and more.
Activities begin at 6:15, movie starts at dusk (approx. 8:15). It kills me that we’re working nights this week – this sounds like it could be fun.
It's fundraising week on Scouting NY, and if you liked the post you just read, would you consider making a donation to help me make my first movie? The goal is $30,000, and already, 1,194 generous readers have donated $25,541.00. Just $5 or $10 can make a difference - AND you get a snazzy Scouting NY sticker or magnet as a Thank-You gift!
