    Poets House regularly hosts readings, workshops and panel discussions for poets, poetry lovers and people who don't yet know they love words in this way. Its annual showcase strives to display every single book of poetry published in the United States that year, from complete works by Pulitzer Prize winners to one-of-a-kind hand-sewn chapbooks. The rest of the time, anyone can browse the more than 50,000 volumes that constitute its library, a light-filled space overlooking the Hudson River. Its events are designed to appeal to twenty- and thirtysomethings (although everyone is welcome to attend unless otherwise noted) and to provide intellectual, artistic entertainment, often with a Jewish focus. The Flea Theater has a slightly different mission: to produce "a joyful hell in a small space." This Off-Off-Broadway theater puts on original music, dance, theater and interdisciplinary performances most nights of the week.
