Park Ave from Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park, 7 AM to 1 PM
Every year for three consecutive Saturdays, New York City celebrates its most important public space: the streets! A seven mile stretch from Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park is closed off for three Saturdays, allowing New Yorkers to freely walk, bike, and use all the public space this city has to offer. The streets will be filled with activities from free biking lessons to music and art performances.

Web Junkie follows the stories of various teens sent to the rehabilitation centers for spending more than 6 hours on the computer per day. Filmmakers Shosh Shlam and Hilla Medalia shed light on the grim conditions of internet rehab centers, and the psychology behind internet addiction.

Teenage Guide to Popularity: MTV 500
Videology at 4:30
Videology's Teenage Guide to Popularity decided to embark on a musical journey through time by attempting to play every single music video from MTV's top 500 list. If those of you recall, MTV's top 500 list aired in the spring of 1997 and featured classics like Michael Jackson's Thriller and Madonna's Vogue. The feat obviously can't be accomplished in one night, so Videology's been going through the list over the course of a few nights and will be continuing it this Sunday!
