View from the Barge, on the East River

At the Brooklyn Bridge
Photo by myself near the Brooklyn Bridge, at Brooklyn Bridge Park.

It was hard to resist taking a photo of the Brooklyn Bridge this weekend, even though it is under repair.

The people to the right are standing aboard the Bargemusic barge, a small boat parked near Old Fulton Street.

For the last 30-some years, New Yorkers have been enjoying chamber music concerts on the water. Concerts take place every weekend, Thursday through Sunday.

Tickets are generally about $35 a piece. On April 23 and May 7, Bargemusic is offering two free matinee concerts in the afternoons. Program to be announced.

Hi Olivier!
Yes they have concerts year-round, from what I can see. There will be music in May, when you visit.
Time flies. I can't believe it's nearly May already.
