jazz2Июнь в Нью-Йорке самый приятный из летних месяцев. Жара еще вполне умеренная и даже желанная, после затяжной прохладной весны, влажность воздуха еще не очень дает о себе знать, а ветерок ласковый и нежный. Вода в океане нагревается и многие уже открывают плавательный сезон. Парки радуют свежей зеленью и яркими цветами. Как же отказать себе в удовольствии проводить больше времени на свежем воздухе, тем более что поводов для этого в Нью-Йорке хоть отбавляй.

Один из самых интересных и приятных – это The Jazz Age Lawn Party. Вечеринка в стиле джаза, которая каждое лето проходит на Губернаторском острове.

Традиция устраивать костюмированный праздник в стиле 20-х годов прошлого столетия начался с частной вечеринки, на которой собиралось от силы 50 человек. Идея очень приглянулась публике и небольшой круг друзей расширился до одного из самых популярных летних городских праздников. В 2011 и 2012 году The Jazz Age Lawn Party была названа самым красочным и запоминающимся событием года.

НО, как вы понимаете, это не единственная возможность насладится природой, музыкой, едой, танцами и весельем в июне.

Выставка роз, собак и котов, фестивали, парады, парусные гонки, джазовые концерты, танцы в стиле арт-деко, футбол, баскетбол, бейсбол… что еще?  Читайте нашу Афишу, и вы узнаете о самой интересном, приятном, увлекательном и модном.
