Day 36: Monday Night Movie on the Elevated Acre

In Movies, NYC, NYC for free, NYC Parks, NYC Rooftop Summer, River to River Festival 2009, Summer 2009, things to do in NYC on July 6, 2009 at 11:49 pm


In the middle of the Financial District, hiding on the back lower roof at 55 Water Street, stories below the tops of neighborhood skyscrapers, there’s a lawn (never mind that it’s artificial), where on Monday nights, city folk gather to watch a free movie as part of the annual summer River to River Festival. The show starts at dark, but come early to claim a spot. Spread out a blanket, bring a picnic dinner and kick back with a flick under the lower Manhattan sky. Free popcorn and bottled water are handed out on the garden deck in the back—cause…what’s a movie without popcorn? Before it’s too dark, make sure to check out the late-day silver blue water of the East River and Brooklyn right across the way.
