There are many great things about living in Brooklyn, including the expansive new waterfront park spanning the river’s edge overlooking downtown Manhattan. As new segments of the park open over the coming months and year, events will be held to celebrate this beautiful new addition to the vibrant community.
Festivities will kick off tonight at the Sunset Swing event from 6-9 p.m. on Pier 1, the newly opened section of the park. For details, check out Sunset Swing. Later, you can join the after party at the Galapagos art space. Organized by the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy Junior Committee, a group dedicated to reaching out to professionals in their 20′s and 30′s.
This later event, the Twilight Swing, A Sunset Swing After-Party Event begins at 9 p.m. You can purchase tickets online or at the door for $25 and $30. Admission to the event gets you two drinks, hors d’oeuvres, dessert and entertainment.
I hear there’s a aerial act you won’t want to miss. Plus, if you’ve never been to the park, you should check out both events to experience the fun and excitement of Brooklyn Heights and the DUMBO area.
Over the course of the summer there are many activities like Movies with a View and group exercise on Pier 1.
I’ll be heading down to Galapagos tonight to check it out the Twilight Swing Event, for sure. For more information about the fundraiser, visit the park’s website or head down tonight. See you there!
