 illusion_680x350_3LIBERTY SCIENCE CENTER, Liberty State Park, 222 Jersey City Boulevard, JC. (201) 200-1000; www.lsc.org.

ILLUSION: NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS. “Get ready for an exhibition that will blow your mind! Illusion: Nothing Is As It Seems is designed to make you question your perception of the world around you, and perhaps reality itself. The exhibition’s dozens of thought-provoking exhibits explore principles rooted in magic, art, neuroscience, physics, biology, psychology, and technology. Gaze into a mirror and watch yourself morph into your inner animal. See how theater, haunted houses, dark amusement park rides, and magic tricks use a special effects technique called Pepper’s Ghost to deceive you. Experience a virtual haircut, enabled by high-tech sensory stimulants. The exhibits include optical, perceptual, and audio illusions. Science and art intersect in this mind-boggling, mesmerizing exhibition.” Created by science gallery at Trinity College Dublin, part of the Global Science Gallery.

Best of the Best

via TimeOut NY – Situated just over the Hudson—although it feels like miles away from Manhattan—Jersey City, NJ, is a waterfront gem with more appeal than most New Yorkers may realize. In fact, it’s one of the most popular towns in the Garden State. From the best bars with the prettiest views to great things to do outside and a weekly free streetsummer music festival, there’s more to Jersey City than meets the eye.

For nearly five decades, Torico has been feeding Jersey City with the best of the best. What started as small deli is now a favorite spot for homemade ice cream. It only took the spot 48 years to perfect the recipe and use real fruit and tropical flavors to make their 65 flavors, which run the gamut from traditional to out-of-this-world original.
