Imagine a school where the cool kids are the chess team. Welcome to I.S. 318. “Brooklyn Castle” tells the stories of five members of the chess team at a below-the-poverty-line inner city junior high school that has won more national championships than any other in the country. The film follows the challenges these kids face in their personal lives — and on the chessboard — and is as much about the sting of their losses as it is about anticipation of their victories. By Katie Dellamaggiore.

This event is free and open to the public.

Hudson River Stripers
Body: 

Vermont offers an abundance of fishing opportunities year round. But as New England's only land-locked state, anglers in pursuit of saltwater species need to make a long trip to the coast. If you're looking to hook into some striped bass, however, there's a great opportunity that's closer to home. A growing number of Vermonters are heading to nearby New York each spring as hundreds of thousands of sea-run stripers make their way up the Hudson River during there annual spawning run.
