The Broadway Collection News for June
It’s finally the summer and it’s time to start spending your time outside on the New York City streets! On June 10th take a walk down the 23 car free blocks from 82nd to 105th streets between 6pm and 9pm for free access to museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and The Africa Center among several others. The Museum Mile is the perfect way to experience some of New York City’s greatest museums for free, while keeping kids involved with the “Art-In-The-Street” projects.
There are plenty of other outdoor events, such as movie screenings in Bryant Park, Shakespeare in the Park, and in its annually glittered glory: the Mermaid Parade. With aquatically adorned floats and cruisers filling Surf Avenue from the NY Aquarium to Coney Island’s classic amusement park, this annual art parade is a risqué spectacle not to be missed.
