Six Impossible Things: Interactive Magic Experience with Joshua Jay

Events On Going Six Impossible Things Joshua Jay NYC with Fernanda Paronetto

Who doesn’t enjoy a little bit of magic in their lives? I certainly do! I got a behind the scenes peek into Six Impossible Things, a magic show that defies all Laws of Nature! Uncover with me the world of Joshua Jay!

When we walk around New York, we find a little bit a magic spread throughout every corner of the city!

Events On Going Six Impossible Things Joshua Jay NYC Skull

And I mean, who in this world does not like a bit of magic? I do!

Joshua Jay is one of the most renowned names today in the world of magic!

He’s performed in over 100 countries, he’s won several prizes, he’s been live in countless TV shows and he even holds a Guinness World of Records for card tricks, which is pretty awesome!

He still holds the title up to this date!

How I met Josh? Well, I met him back in 2011 in Brazil where my brother and I participated in a small shooting he was doing at a friend’s photography studio!

I really thought that we would not fall for his tricks, but…to my surprise, it was truly a-m-a-z-i-n-g!

Now, Josh lives in NY (hum…actually he’s been here for over 10 years!) and started a special show called Six Impossible Things.

I went behind the scenes before his show started, to check out what’s going on, before he goes on stage!

And the magic happens, right behind a blue door…

Get your ticket!


My experience at the show!

Events On Going Six Impossible Things Joshua Jay NYC Fernanda Paronetto

After the shooting with Josh, I actually came back to witness the show and I was in awe all through this interactive experience.

There were only 20 people there, keeping it quite intimate. Every single person was able to participate in one or another magic and engage with Josh during the show.

Plus, each one had a one-on-one with him!

At each magic trick it just kept getting more and more amazing and it truly blew my mind (and everyone that was there). I paid close attention to see if there was any way to figure out how it was done, but some tricks were pretty complex to even try…

What can I say? For one, I don’t want to do any spoiler alerts, but you’ll be sure to see some of the most spectacular magic tricks ever, that even defy all Laws of Nature! Oh, and the art work by Serge Bloch is breathtaking and pretty special!

I LOVED IT and recommend it to every one out there, at every age!


More about the show:

“Six Impossible Things is an interactive magic experience in which you will experience astounding magic inches from your face, in the dark and even alone.”

The show is approximately 75 minutes and includes an unusual refreshment and a hard-backed volume not otherwise for sale.

We definitely a timeless affair with it!

The story behind this grandiose landmark is more than amusing, but lets starts with saying it’s name correctly, ok?

People have the habit of calling it “Grand Central Station”. But, the correct name is “Grand Central Terminal”! Why? Because a terminal is where train lines “terminate”. It’s the start and ending point for trains, hence, it’s a Terminal, not a Station. So, lets start saying the name right!

In the past, the Grand Central Terminal was seen as an embarrassment to the city of New York, and you can’t even imagine why!

This behind the scenes Grand Central Terminal tour will take you through the common areas. In addition, it will also give you so much rich, unpublished and private information of things people don’t quite notice while rushing by!

Want something ultra top secret!? Ask about the M42, a secret sub-basement. Why it’s completely blocked by security and why its exact location is so closely guarded! The story is thrilling!

During the 2nd World War, even Hitler tried infiltration spies to gain access to destroy it, but was thankfully unsuccessful. It does not even show in the Terminal’s blueprints and maps, due to is secrecy.

So, expect not only to see many of the traditional spots – with secret information, but also experience some quite unique places within the building!

SOME TOUR HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Peek into the entrance of the glass walkways;
  • Locate its lost armchairs;
  • Learn about Grand Central Terminal’s backwards ceiling;
  • See its hidden tennis courts;
  • Learn many more of its secrets!

Here is a small description on what to expect from this tour:

The abandoned Ellis Island Hospital complex—once the standard for United States medical care (and later transformed to the FBI headquarters when the island served as a detention center)—has been left to decay for nearly 60 years.

On this experience, you’ll visit the contagious disease wards and the autopsy rooms. And still, have exclusive access to places usually closed to the public.

While Ellis Island has become one of New York City’s top tourist attractions, drawing over two million visitors per year, the 22-building South Side hospital complex is hidden in plain sight. It’s just to the left of disembarking passengers headed towards the Great Hall…

Looking at its desolate, skeletal frame, it’s difficult to imagine its backstory as one of the largest public health undertakings in American history.

Join us for our upcoming hard hat tour, guided by a Save Ellis Island docent. We’ll uncover its many, buried secrets.”

Bushwick is definitely one of the neighborhoods we love exploring that are on the top of our list! It’s impressive how many new cool spots and events are opening and happening there! A few places we absolutely love are: House of Yes, Lot 45, The Space NYC and Roberta’s Pizza.

The neighborhood is super rich in art – mostly known by the graffiti street arts and the Bushwick Collective. It’s also recognized by some of the greatest local restaurants and breweries! There is just so much history that we can’t allow it to be forgotten.

Plus, it’s inhabited by some of the hippest, low profile Brooklynites you’ll cross paths with.

We offer, in partnership with one of our top partners, an amazing tour to explore the neighborhood’s secrets, hidden spots, food & drink scene. You’ll be led by great professional photographer-guides that will not only share with you the local stories, but will also capture the most beautiful pictures of you and your family & friends!

Do you want a customized tour? We can organize that too!

Our photographer-guide will send you at least 50 high-res, edited pictures after the entire experience! For customized tours, you can expect over 100 shots!

Super cool, right?!

Duration: 3 hours.

We’ve written quite a few times about the guys at Komeeda. We’ve covered many of their past events and we are always sharing every new and special experience they cater. Thankfully, we are always informed about them in advance, and we’re able to share with our readers as soon as they come out. They are all sold out pretty quickly!

This time, they’ve put together a special evening at the Brooklyn Museum with a mouthwatering eight-dish tasting dinner by Michelin Starred Chef, Saul Bolton. He’ll be showcasing his signatures for The Norm.

Furthermore, this feast will take you on a gastronomic tour of the culinary traditions that have helped make Brooklyn New York City’s most exciting borough.

From dished like golden deviled eggs and crispy curried cauliflower, to tonkotsu-style ramen and pan-roasted atlantic salmon.

More about the restaurant:

“Inspired by the cultural diversity of Brooklyn, The Norm’s menu by Michelin-starred Chef Saul Bolton encourages a gastronomic exploration of the borough’s multi-cultural heritage. It incorporates Indian, Mexican, Japanese, Middle Eastern, Caribbean, Indo-Chinese and all-American elements. That exploration is complemented by a setting which evokes on of the museum’s inner sanctum. It’s storage area where priceless works await their star turn in the galleries.”

You can definitely expect a great night at a unique place.

Sofar Sounds NYC: Bringing the magic back to live music

Events On Going Sofar Sounds NYC Live Music Rooftop

If you’re into music, really good music, incredible artists and intimate events in unique spots, this is for you! Many have already heard of Sofar Sounds NYC, right?!

Events On Going Sofar Sounds NYC Live Music

It all started with a group of friends playing great live music in someone’s living room, back in London! People were chit-chatting during the show and this group of friends couldn’t really enjoy the band, as they wanted.

So, they decided to start hosting private, secret gigs, with fantastic upcoming bands, in their own living room. In no time, rooms were filled up and people were fighting for a spot at their events.

Then, their concept simply went global, and they started hosting events in several different cities and countries. Today, they are in over 300 cities and are still able to keep it private and secret.

How it works? You’re able to see the neighborhood the shows will happen, but you have no idea which 3 bands are performing. When you sign up, you need to wait for the confirmation that your ticket is confirmed. Then, the exact location is sent through email only a few hours prior to the show.

But wait!!! All Behind the Scenes NYC followers have a promo-code allows you to skip the line and guarantees you instant access when purchasing tickets! WUHU! The code is: BTSNYC-8493B (Code might change every now and then, so reach out if it doesn’t work!)

NYC’s Sofar scene has now grown and they host almost 100 events a month. Lucky us!

Take a look below at the upcoming ones and go online to save your spot! Don’t forget to use our promo-code!
