Before the rain chased us and all of our events calendars away, Lisa, Betsy, Ginny, and I spent a good portion of last Sunday at the Battery Park City Block Party. Because this is Battery Park City, the block party took place next to the marina just across the street from the Winter Garden. This is our neighborhood after all.
This coming Sunday (9-19), meet the whole Communications staff, including Keika, when we hang out with our friends at Harmony on the Hudson, the annual day-long family music festival presented by the Battery Park City Parks Conservancy. There will be music by Tom Chapin and Friends, the Harlem Renaissance Orchestra will crank up the big band and swing tunes, there will be art activities and games for kids, and if you’ve never seen the Double Dutch Divas perform their wild, heart stopping jump rope acrobatics, you won’t want to miss it. Just watching them is an aerobic activity. The festivities begin at 1 p.m.
This weekend’s gateway to fun is in Robert Wagner Park, so if you’re planning a visit to the Museum to see David Marwell interview Thomas Buergenthal at 2:30, stop by our table and say hello.
