A salad that withstands transportation, a picnic blanket for perching, and a willingness to walk a few blocks and sit among strangers is happily all we need to enjoy summer here.
The movie series at Brooklyn Bridge Park is one of my very favorite things about summer in this city and it makes heat waves and crowds and tiny apartments feel totally worth it. Two weeks ago we watched Ferris Bueller’s Day Off with about 1 billion other people. During the parade scene, the entire lawn stood up to dance along to Twist and Shout. If that doesn’t make you grin, I’m not sure what will.
More park love, here.
