For the past 12 years, the good folks at the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservatory have shown free movies outside in the park. The astounding NY skyline overlooking the water is a rare place for peace and tranquility (not to mention romantic). I went every Thursday from July to September of last year. I’ve been more busy this year but I had the opportunity to go last week. The iconic 1961 classic “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” was played for all to see. The film about a quintessential and untraditional New York girl was the perfect antidote to my stressful week. It was a beautiful night without a cloud in the sky in 77 degree weather. I’ll go more into depth about the film next week with “What I Learned” but to see Audrey Hepburn in her famous Little Black Dress was a true “New York Moment.” No wonder the lawn was at full capacity! I highly recommend going to the park with your blanket and some fresh sandwiches.
Movies With A View continues until September 1. Movies are screened every Thursday. Check their site for the schedule.
