If you can’t afford to take a trip around the world, just take a step out of your front door. New York has long been considered a microcosm of the world. You can find just about every culture and nationality from around the globe right in your own neighborhood. From April 17 thru April 23 celebrate the diversity and richness of New York with the NYC Immigrant Heritage Week. On Thursday, April 23, Brooklyn Public Library’s Caribbean Literacy and Cultural Center will host Days of the Dead in Brooklyn: Caribbean Traditions of Morning and Remembrance.
Thursday evening make your way over to the Dweck Center for a special ticketed performance of the Auturo O’Farill Quintet. This Mexican-born musician will enchant you with the smooth sounds of jazz.
