We’ve rounded up the best free fun under the Brooklyn sun for you this summer, so you can save your pennies and put them towards your next winter coat… or endless iced coffees from the bodega!
You can’t put a price on good health, and you definitely can’t put a price on free yoga classes on Saturdays in Bed-Stuy! Every Saturday from now until the end of September, you can salute the sun and warrior away your worries, with instructor Katie Cercone leading classes at Jane Bailey Memorial Garden. Mats are provided and all levels of experience welcome.
Wednesdays in Williamsburg throughout July and August will deliver outdoor cinema at its finest. Get yourself down to McCarren Park for Brooklyn’s free film and concert series, now celebrating its 10th year. From 6pm there will be music, food and cult classics to watch like Jurassic Park, or you could become Dazed and Confused by all the Dirty Dancing taking place in this Wet Hot American Summer.
To be watching a Shakespeare production by the Brooklyn Heights waterfront, or not to be, that is the question. We think you will want to be there, watching ‘Measure for Measure’ as Brooklyn Bridge Park is transformed into Vienna, for a few nights in August. Now in it’s fifth year, the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy will again treat us to performances from theater groups around NYC.
‘They’ say the best things in life are free, and ‘they’ were probably talking about listening to classical music on a floating barge on the East River. Moored just under the Brooklyn Bridge at the Fulton Ferry Landing, Bargemusic presents “Music in Motion” on Saturdays from 4pm – a one-hour performance followed by a Q&A session with the musicians. Take in the lower Manhattan skyline while delighting in the exceptional acoustics provided by the intimate wood-panelled concert hall.
