Day 74: River Rocks

In Meatpacking District, NYC, NYC for free, NYC Music, NYC Parks, things to do in NYC on August 13, 2009 at 11:42 pm


There’s no shortage of fun to be had at Hudson River Park this summer. Inside the 550 acres that run down Manhattan’s west side, from 59th Street to Battery Park, with twenty-seven piers, one would be challenged to feel bored. And though sunbathing and kayaking are only by day, good times go on after dark as well. As part of the park’s River Rocks series, bands light up the stage for free nighttime shows at Pier 54, on the water just west of the meatpacking district. Under the black sky it’s tough to make out the pier from the street, but you can’t miss the rusted steel arch at the entrance. Another hint might be the crowds of people out to take advantage of a no-cover open-air show. When the weather’s nice, it’s all about being outdoors. It’s even better when there’s music to move to. Uh huh. That’s something to ‘yea’ about!
