How do you define New York City? On September 18th passersby in Tompkins Square Park will be invited to share their answer to this question in words and images. Submitted responses will be projected live after sunset from a giant helium balloon, the Urballoon. The audience can also participate by visiting the website from their mobile device or from an on-site laptop connected to the Internet.


Shyness and the socialization of girls were some of the topics broached in Erika deVries' Girls Eye View middle school program.
