TIME’S UP!  Space, 49 East Houston (bet. Mott and Mulberry)

Could you kill your best-friend??? Battle Royale, a high-octane thriller about senseless youth violence, is based on one of Japan’s best-selling — and most controversial — novels. As part of a ruthless program by the totalitarian government, ninth-grade students are taken to a small isolated island with a map, food, and various weapons. Forced to wear special collars that explode when they break a rule, they must fight each other for three days until only one winner remains. The elimination contest becomes the ultimate in must-see reality television. The first novel by small-town journalist Koushun Takami, it went on to become an even more notorious film by 70-year-old gangster director Kinji Fukusaku. 122 min.

PARKS, PLANS, AND POLITICS: THE ANDREW H. GREEN HISTORY RIDE

Saturday, May 14, 1 p.m.

NW corner of 40th St. and Fifth Ave. near the New York Public Library,

Cycle through history to rediscover the astonishing AHG pointing at NYC map. A 19th-century master planner, reformer, and preservationist, Green was largely responsible for New York’s greatest parks, public works, and cultural institutions. Late in his career he led the decade-long struggle to consolidate the patchwork of municipalities around New York Harbor into the five-borough city that exists today.

The ride, all within Manhattan, will visit many sites Green helped create or preserve, including the American Museum of Natural History, Hamilton Grange, Central Park, the Washington Bridge, the New York Public Library, Bennett Park, and a Paleozoic Museum that never was. We will also visit Green’s little-known public monument and the location of his unprovoked murder. Approximately 15 miles.
