After a leisurely 4th of July weekend, I'm looking tanner, feeling more relaxed and less inclined to work.
If you can take the heat (100 degrees, really?), Tuesdays are free concert nights at Pier 45 on the Hudson River.
Students from the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and Mannes College The New School for Music perform on one of Hudson River Park’s scenic piers throughout the summer. Check the concert schedule here. Performances start at 6:30 PM. Bring a bottle of wine and a picnic dinner!
