Success! We had a great view of the fireworks this year, from the new park just north of Chelsea Piers.
I’m not sure, however, what was more exciting: seeing the sky over the Hudson lit up Sunday night or playing the piano for Val Kilmer on Saturday. You’ll have to take my word for it, but that is Iceman* sitting on the bench in front of me!
Sing for Hope placed 60 pianos in park spaces around the city–there for the past two weeks for the public to play–and will donate each to schools and hospitals after this weekend. I’m going to miss them; it’s been wonderful hearing people play while out strolling on these warm nights.
