New, 5 comments

CHELSEA?Next week, the High Line will kick off a movie series that celebrates New York City in the 1980s, a time when the elevated park was taken over by nature. The first film, The Muppets Take Manhattan, starts at 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 6. The free series continues the following two Thursday with Wild Style on the 13th and Working Girl on the 20th. No RSVP is required, but seating in the 14th Street Passage is limited. And if you're wondering how a multi-million dollar park relates to these films, the press release states: "Just as today's High Line is a story of resourcefulness and creativity, so are the stories of the movie characters in this film series: the notorious Muppets, the young wild style graffiti artists, and Tess McGill, the secretary struggling to make it in the big city."

FINANCIAL DISTRICT?The Historic Districts Council wants to take you inside the rarely-seen spaces of One Wall Street, the art deco BNY Mellon Building, on September 19.. Visitors will have the opportunity to see the building's 49th floor reception room, the museum, and the glittering Red Room, named for its ornate red and gold mosaics. Located next to the New York Stock Exchange, the Red Room is used to greet BNY's clients. The granddaughter and daughter of the mosaic artist, Hildreth Meière, will join the tour. Space is limited to 25 people and tickets for non-members cost $125. [Curbedwire Inbox; official]
