Tribecca-Film-Festival-Drive-inВот уже 3 года, как существует рубрика нашего журнала «Афиша» и нам, как-то не ловко, снова в июльском выпуске писать о том, что главное мероприятие месяца — это праздничный фейерверк – подарок городу от магазина Macy’s. Все это прекрасно знают и так. Но, обратите внимание, что в конце «Афиши» мы приводим лучшие места от куда в этом году стоит посмотреть огненное шоу.
[box][quote]Но что же порекомендовать новенькое в июле для читателей Elegant New York?
Brookfield Place! Вот что точно еще никому не наскучило. Наконец-то, многое из этого грандиозного комплекса входит в нашу повседневную жизнь, но многое все еще впереди. Не хотим быть негативными, но, пожалуй, Brookfield Place можно назвать самым дорогим и затяжным долгостроем Нью-Йорка. Так что, полюбопытствуйте, что же получается в итоге. Поводов для этого предостаточно – в июле здесь пройдет несколько интересных мероприятий, которые советуем вам непременно посетить.

1. С конца июня и вплоть до 13 сентября, Arts Brookfield в своих холлах представляет инсоляции под названием Air Pressure 
2. Еще более интересный, н а наш взгляд, эксперимент это The Swings – опыт коллективного музицирования на гигантском «музыкальном инструменте». Попробует свои творческие силы – это бесплатно, но строго ограниченно правилами. Устроители утверждают – THE SWINGS is a new media art installation, not a playground. Так что читайте правила и творите. Очень рекомендуем побывать, попробовать и самим убедиться, как звучит коллективное творчество с вашим участием. Подробности здесь 
3. До 12 июля в Brookfield Place пройдет музыкальный фестиваль Lowdown Hudson Music Fest, который не стоит игнорировать.

Мы перечислили ближайшие мероприятия в Brookfield Place, но кроме них, это место интересно своим дизайном, архитектурой, едой, новыми магазинами, ставшим уже знаменитым грандиозным новым транспортным узлом на WTC, набережной с дивным видом, рекой, яхтами, самой дорогой в мире мариной, рейсовыми корабликами. Здесь легко провести целый день, чувствуя себя гостем нового современного города 21 столетия.

image [box][quote]Дадим вам еще один совет: праздничный фейерверк будет прекрасно виден из Джерси Сити, добраться на набережную этого города из Brookfield Place или от WTC займет у вас не больше 10 минут, а красоту вы увидите необыкновенную. Хорошее место для обеда и наблюдения салюта в ресторане Surf City (1 Marin Blvd, Jersey City).[/quote][/box]
