Concert in Washington Square Park

Park_concertYesterday, 9/11/06, was the 5th event put on by September Concert.  They put on free concerts every 9/11 in every major park in NYC.  It is a real wonderful way to acknowledge the day and bring communities together.  NYC came together as a community on 9/12/01 and it would be a shame to lose sight of that.

Our school, LREI, basically puts on the concert in Washington Square Park.  The teachers involved in music do an incredible event.  Both the middle school and high school attended the event from 12:30-2:30 yesterday and participated.  From different bands to poems, etc.  Two of our kids got on stage.

Jessica was involved in leading the park in a rendition of All You Need
is Love by the Beatles, and Josh’s band, The 4 Fellas,  played Rebel, Rebel. 

A wonderful way to remember an awful day.

    Hi! I was wondering if you could provide me some information about NYC? My husband has accepted a position there and we will be moving soon from Chicago. We are in our mid-thirties, have a young family, and have 2 dogs. We are looking for a great family-oriented neighborhood. You have so much knowledge about NYC! We are excited about our move, but because we have children, we want everything to go smoothly! (or at least as smoothly as possible!) Any advice you could provide would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks so much,
