Lyons Pool, 6 Victory Blvd at Murray Hulbert Ave, Staten Island. Travel: From the Staten Island Ferry, take the SIRR to Tompkinsville Station or the S61, S62, S78, S51 or S74 bus to Bay St and Victory Blvd.The fourth annual video and performance art festival, presented by Staten Island Arts, places local and international artists in an unusual setting: the empty Lyons Pool. More than 60 local and international artists have been given free rein over the facilities, and can use everything from the bathrooms to a lifeguard’s chair for their installations. Don’t worry, the pool isn’t totally dry: A bar in the center offers Brooklyn Brewery beers and PepperJack Grill sangria, and you can make pit stops at food trucks such as Morris Grilled Cheese and Desi Food as you wander between the 68 different works on view.
