Governors Island to Stay Open Late on Fridays and Saturdays in 2019
Aug 2 all-day
Shot in June 2018 during the blue hour from Governors Island

Governors Island Late Fridays and Saturdays

OH YES!

Fridays and Saturdays
May 24 – August 31, 2019
Open until 10:00 pm

We got the chance to experience late days at the Island last year and so enamored was I with the whole thing that I went two days in a row. Luckily they were absolutely stunning days! You wouldn’t believe how excited I just got when I discovered that, yep, they’re offering this up so early in the season. Had imagined them not doing this until a bit later but we’ll take it!

The Ferry leaves from the historic Battery Maritime Building, located at 10 South Street in Lower Manhattan just north of the Staten Island Ferry. It’s a short and cheap ride across the waters.

If you’re a photographer like yours truly then you’ll really get a kick out of the chance to capture the setting sun as well as the Lower Manhattan skyline during the blue hour and evening. Yes, of course, you can do so on other days when the island’s open to all, but come on! This is a great chance to capture it all under a night sky. I plan to return again, and again and again and again. Will you?

Visit this page at the official site for Ferry information.

The photo at the top of this page was taken at the end of the sunset hour as the night sky crept in. We took many photos like this during our visit.

Below, would be yet another panoramic shot taken there as well as a photo taken in the afternoon.

The Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival in New York

Published by New China TV

THE OLDEST, LARGEST, MOST TRADITIONAL DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL& MULTICULTURAL CELEBRATION IN THE US!

RENOWNED BLUES ARTIST BRUCE KATZ HEADLINES THE MAIN STAGE AS TWO DAYS OF FREE MULTICULTURAL PERFORMANCES TAKE PLACE DURING THE 2019 HONG KONG DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL IN NEW YORK.

Katz, one of the Country’s Greatest Living Blues Artists brings his band to perform on the Main Stage Sunday, August 4th @1:30pm. Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Queens, NY.

Bruce Katz is a legendary keyboardist (Hammond B3 and piano) who has released 10 CD’s as a leader and has appeared on over 70 other CD’s with the likes of John Hammond, Delbert McClinton, Ronnie Earl, Butch Trucks, Duke Robillard, Little Milton, Joe Louis Walker, David “Fathead” Newman, and many others. Bruce had a strong musical connection with the Allman Brothers band, having been a member of Gregg Allman’s Band for six years (2007-2013), Butch Trucks’ Freight Train Band (2015-2017) and Les Brers . Bruce toured with the Allman Brothers a number of times as well.

His 10th & newest CD , “Get Your Groove!” (American Showplace Music) features many new original tunes, both vocal and instrumental. It continues the evolution of the band’s music from the improvisational “jam blues” and roots music he has explored as a member of the various Allman Brothers “family bands.” Bruce is a 5x nominee for the Blues Foundation’s “Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year” award, including 2018. Bruce recently won the BMA for “Acoustic Album of The Year”. He has also been nominated for the Living Blues “Outstanding Keyboardist” award twice (2015, 2019).

HKDBFNY Continues its long tradition of featuring some of the region’s best Multicultural artists performing for the festival. The Opening Ceremony is at Noon on Saturday.

The ever popular Echo Music Jam Band returns to kick of the activities at 10:30 on Sat , a collaboration between musicians in the Echo music scene and talented local singers showcasing the best of Pop, Rock, Alternative, and Metal music. The Chinese Music Ensemble of New York returns on Sunday to start the day, founded in 1961, the Chinese Music Ensemble of New York is one of the oldest and largest Chinese orchestras in the United States playing Cantonese traditional music. The traditional Mariachi Aguila y Plata returns as well bringing the most traditional and cultural Mariachi music of the tri state area. New this year GONG MUSIC provides a dynamic stage for Chinese music performance and education, to promote Chinese traditional music and develop modern elements in folk music to serve a diverse audience. Also new this year the School of Rock House Band, an audition-only band that . consists of some of their most talented students. A returning favorite crowd pleaser the Hudson Valley Storyteller Jonathan Kruk returns to spin “Dragon Tales.” The NY Shaolin Temple Kung Fu Association will entertain with its kung fu demonstration filled with punches and kicks.

Governors Island to Stay Open Late on Fridays and Saturdays in 2019
Aug 3 all-day
Shot in June 2018 during the blue hour from Governors Island

Governors Island Late Fridays and Saturdays

OH YES!

Fridays and Saturdays
May 24 – August 31, 2019
Open until 10:00 pm

We got the chance to experience late days at the Island last year and so enamored was I with the whole thing that I went two days in a row. Luckily they were absolutely stunning days! You wouldn’t believe how excited I just got when I discovered that, yep, they’re offering this up so early in the season. Had imagined them not doing this until a bit later but we’ll take it!

The Ferry leaves from the historic Battery Maritime Building, located at 10 South Street in Lower Manhattan just north of the Staten Island Ferry. It’s a short and cheap ride across the waters.

If you’re a photographer like yours truly then you’ll really get a kick out of the chance to capture the setting sun as well as the Lower Manhattan skyline during the blue hour and evening. Yes, of course, you can do so on other days when the island’s open to all, but come on! This is a great chance to capture it all under a night sky. I plan to return again, and again and again and again. Will you?

Visit this page at the official site for Ferry information.

The photo at the top of this page was taken at the end of the sunset hour as the night sky crept in. We took many photos like this during our visit.

Below, would be yet another panoramic shot taken there as well as a photo taken in the afternoon.

The Gauntlet comes to Rockefeller Center® :: Choral Singers Live Performance

Hundreds Of Choral Singers From All Five Boroughs To Guide Visitors Through The Gauntlet, A Transformative Live Musical Experience Throughout Rockefeller Center® Plaza

Performance Is Free & Open To The Public

Saturday, August 3
4:00 pm & 7:00 pm

Rockefeller Plaza
Between 49th and 50th Streets and 5th and 6th Avenues

Have a look at this video featuring The Gauntlet.
Published by Sxip Shirey at Youtube

Performed by a chorus of hundreds of singers from across all five boroughs of New York City The Gauntlet is an immersive, site-specific choral and movement piece that will bathe thousands of people in waves of harmony, poetry and gesture. Audiences will be led through musical corridors of sonic architecture formed by the human voice on Saturday, August 3 at 4:00 PM & 7:00 PM at Rockefeller Plaza, located between 49th and 50th Streets and 5th and 6th Avenues, Manhattan.

Created by composer Sxip Shirey and choreographer Coco Karol, each performance of The Gauntlet is unique, reflecting the site, community, and performers it is created with. This Rockefeller Center iteration of The Gauntlet is inspired by the theme of transformation, with text formed from ‘movement interviews’ with resident New Yorkers: changemakers, cultural figures, and artists. As visitors make their way through the plazas, they will be immersed with stories of transformation presented in the collective choral work.

The performance features independent singers from across all five boroughs of New York City, including choir members from C4 – The Choral Composer/Conductor Collective, Choral Chameleon, Downtown Voices, Inspire, The O’s Ensemble, Young New Yorkers’ Chorus, Moving Star Ensemble, Wintersweet Ensemble, New York City Master Chorale, and R.Evolución Latina.

This site-specific work was commissioned by Tishman Speyer and co-produced by National Sawdust.

Summer Streets 2019

August 3, 10, 17, 2019
7:00 am – 1:00 pm

Route spans for 7 miles from the East 72nd street exit of Central Park over to Park Avenue an all the way down to the village wherein it winds its way past Astor Place and down Lafayette Street towards the Brooklyn Bridge.

Along the way there’ll be rest stops offering up activities which should be of interest to many.

Sports enthusiasts are in abundance as they ride, walk, run and skate within the tunnel underneath the Helmsley Hotel on NYC Streets Day.

It’s been awhile since we’ve participated in this event but we’re antsy to be getting back in the game and re-experiencing it anew. For perhaps most folks it’s an opportunity to pursue and carry out that which the organizers had in mind. That is, a chance to promote a healthy lifestyle; provide a family-friendly & pet-friendly atmosphere; Promote sustainable forms of transportation…and more. But you know what? It’s an awesome chance for us photographers to walk about through the streets and other parts with cameras in hand for those once in a lifetime shots! So if you’re not into the sports element of what this event offers up then joining with your camera equipment might be a great idea. ‘and well, that’s exactly what yours truly has in mind.

The 4th Annual Harlem Havana Music & Cultural Festival Celebration at St. John the Divine
Aug 3 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

The Cathedral Of St. John The Divine Presents

The 4th Annual Harlem Havana Music & Cultural Festival Celebration

Saturday, August 3, 2019
2:00 – 4:00 pm

The Cathedral of St. John the Divine
1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street), Manhattan

COST:  Free

The Cathedral of St. John the Divine will host the 4th annual Harlem Havana Music & Cultural Festival, which celebrates the rich artistic connection between Harlem and Havana, and seeks to re-ignite the historic relationship that existed between Cuban and New York jazz musicians before relations between the U.S. and Cuba were suspended in the 1960s on Saturday, August 3 at 2:00 p.m. at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street).

The festival’s featured performers include the Afro-Cuban experimental dance ensemble, Oyu Oro, and Harlem artists, Keith “THE CAPTAIN” Gamble and The NU Gypsies.

Oyu Oro is the brainchild of Danys “La Mora” Perez ─ international Afro-Cuban folklore performer, choreographer, teacher and dance ethnologist from Santiago de Cuba. The company is committed to the preservation of Afro-Cuban folklore, as well as to encourage the cross-cultural understanding of the dance and music forms derived from African culture. While Oyu Oro’s traditional repertoire pays tribute to African lineages derived from the Yoruba, Congo, Carabali, Arará and Dahomean cultures of West Africa and Haiti, the popular dance choreographies also celebrate the national popular Cuban heritage.

Singer-Songwriter, Keith “THE CAPTAIN” Gamble’s heart and soul are rooted in the Blues. He can charge his performances with Funk, Rock, Jazz, R&B, and Soul, but will always lead his audience back home to the Blues. Keith “THE CAPTAIN” Gamble and the NU Gypsies present an electric, eclectic and exciting display of musical joy expressed in all genres. This Harlem born and bred band gives their audiences a taste of all the flavors of the community through rhythm and song.
