Every summer the world-renowned The New York Philharmonic preforms several outdoor concerts around the city in all of the boroughs. This year, unfortunately, their Manhattan shows were a little bit dicey due to weather, but my friends and I headed to Central Park, blankets (and wine, duh) in hand to catch their performance.
Because we all work 9-6 jobs, we knew it was going to be a battle getting a semi-decent seat on the lawn. My friend Becky and I headed straight from work and got to the park around 6:45 thanks to the ever-(un)reliable A/C trains. We booked it to the park, and unsurprisingly it was already packed. We were at the very back boundaries of the Great Lawn – we couldn’t see the stage but hoped it would be close enough to hear the music. So, we set up shop, laid down our blankets and busted out the wine and cheese.
