A big day for news anchors, both serious and satirical. Jon Stewart will be stepping down from The Daily Show before the end of the year where he’s served as anchor for nearly two decades (this, of course, months after his protégé Stephen Colbert left his eponymous show to take over for David Letterman). And Brian Williams has been suspended from NBC Nightly News for six months, effective immediately in the wake of a changing-story scandal. The story’s been written before, but it seems the satirical news media has gotten the best of the “real guys” once again.

A large-scale art project will be bringing a new flavor to Central Park in the late Spring. According to the New York Times Magazine, the experience will be happening each Friday and Saturday afternoon from May 15 to June 20, and will include things like an ice cream truck with sunset-colored flavors, recreations of famous movie scenes, and a boat with a brass band navigating the Harlem Meer.
