It's Spring in New York and with the warmer weather, it's time to let loose and enjoy some sunshine. With no snow in sight, America's busiest city is yours to enjoy. With covid-19 restrictions, here are some of the best ways to enjoy Spring in New York:
Enjoying the view at Brooklyn waterfront: On Friday 21st March 2021, art was unveiled at Domino Park. The art was an interactive media piece created by Jen Lewin called Reflect. The art is a combination of patterns which form rings that consist of platforms that interact and respond to the steps of visitors. The light spans 2,400 square feet and changes color when you walk on it. Amazing, right?! Also, during the day, the mirrors the sky and by night gives an amazing fusion of color and beauty. The view is free and open to the public every day from 8 am to 10 pm.
The cities' floating bars and restaurants have always been a trademark of New York City. With Spring back in session, what better way to enjoy it than having the perfect lunch or dinner while enjoying the view of the sea. Boatsturants as they're fondly called provides the opportunity to wine and dine while enjoying the captivating sunset. Boatsturants including Grand Banks, Island Oyster, Pilot, and more announced that they're now accepting reservations. From the Hudson River to the Greenpoint waterfront, these boats would be sailing along. Groups of seven or more can make reservations for this wonder which runs through from spring up until the Summer.
For the lovers of live outdoor programs, you can enjoy NYC’s new Open Culture program. The new city-wide program aimed at bringing culture to five boroughs' streets kicked off on March 19th and would run through to October 31st. The programs, albeit ticketed, allow for performances, classes, and training on the streets of New York. A map on the city's website shows all the spaces that have been approved for the live event. Also, over 150 events have been confirmed for the program. To find out what or which event is available in the program, you can check out https://nyceventpermits.nyc.gov/cems/findevents.
Nothing speaks concerts like having lots of people, loud music and dance. But how about a private concert?? Weird but exciting, right. As part of what you can enjoy this Spring, the Brooklyn Academy of Music would be hosting personal concerts to people on the weekends of May 8th-9th and 15th-16th absolutely free of charge at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. This one-of-a-kind event would have guests treated to ten undiluted minutes of private, one on one performances by different musicians. "The musical program is curated by world-renowned Silkroad collective in their BAM debut features instruments including accordion, cello, clarinet, double bass, erhu, flute, Celtic harp, oud, percussion, saxophone, trumpet, and viola. Much of the repertoire will be played from memory and chosen at the moment." The press release stated. The 1:1 CONCERTS, as they are fittingly called would take place everywhere within the Yard. "Upon arrival, a BAM host personally escorts the attendee through alleyways, nooks, and corridors, providing rare behind-the-scenes glimpses of the historic, living landmark," reads the press release. If this doesn't thrill you, I don't think anything will.
