Brooklyn celebrated

Wei goodbye

Bayin’ alive

7 pm at Shore Road Park [Shore Road at 79th Street in Bay Ridge]. Free.


Aug. 13


Wham! Pow! Bort! The Avengers — and other famous superheroes — assemble at Barclays Center Aug. 13–17 for “Marvel Universe Live,” a live-action arena show featuring stunts, martial arts, pyrotechnics, motorcycles, and more spandex than a Suzanne Somers Thighmaster commercial.
