City by Subway: Blast Through Brooklyn

Matt Maggiacomo shows you how to burn through Brooklyn this weekend, making stops at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and a kooky Dumbo soiree.

+Start out at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden for the annual Cherry Blossom Festival.  This year's event includes 50 performances, and there's also something special for anime fans.

+ It's time to make your way out to Williamsburg to McCarren Park.  May 2 marks the much-anticipated opening of the Market in McCarren, a weekly outdoor independent artist and designer market.  It's a hotspot for trendsetters and a cafe serving organic and locally produced food.

+ Stay put in Williamsburg a little longer, make your way over to north 1st and Kent for SLAM's new show, Catapult.  The show bends the rules of physics and gravity. 

+ Head back south to Dumbo to Galapagos Art Space for a costume party celebrating Depression-era debauchery.  The kooky soiree benefits Williamsburg's Brick Theater.
