On Monday night, I met up with my friends Christine and Alyssa at the Great Lawn in Central Park for Philharmonic in the Park! It’s a New York tradition that went on hiatus last summer (bummer). The New York Philharmonic plays in parks in every borough over the course of about a week., and I was excited to cross it off my New York bucket list.
It was a lovely evening of friends, good conversation, a French baguette, apple grape juice and ice cream (for dessert!). Oh, and heat and humidity, but that’s summer for you. And some creeping on some really fancy picnic set ups. You better believe we’re going to be prepared come next year.
And the best part? Fireworks!! But no classical music during the fireworks show? Missed opportunity, people.
