  • Second Saturday Staten Island
    Responding to escalating rents and cramped quarters in artsy enclaves such as Williamsburg, Long Island City, Chelsea and the Lower East Side, artists have trickled across the harbor to form a noteworthy community on Staten Island's north shore. To cultivate its growth, artists Brendan Coyle and Amanda Curtis—proprietors of a (now-defunct) apartment gallery, the Assembly Room—instituted Second Saturday Staten Island, a monthly art crawl that shows off the indie scene at local galleries, cafés, artist studios and bookstores. At the various stops, adventurous art lovers from near and far can take in Staten Island's cutting-edge talent while chatting with local artists. —HP
