In a city like New York quiet nights are often interrupted by honking horns. It's known for its hustle and bustle, but I've discovered one of the few places where thousands of New Yorkers gather and it still reminds quaintly quiet...a free New York Philharmonic concert in the park.
So Many People
For more than 45 years, the world famous museums have been leaving their classic Lincoln Center venue for an outdoor theater open to the masses. I'm certainly no musical maestro, but there's just something about listening to the classical tunes after a long week of work that revels in relaxation. At tonight's concert in Central Park, Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4 in F minor took the first act followed by Respighi's Fountains of Rome after intermission. The evening perfectly ended with a booming firework display over the City skyline. The free performances end on the 17th, so click here to get all the information about the remaining dates, times, and places. Oh, and a word to the wise, pack a picnic and be sure to bring comfy seating and a precautionary umbrella.
