I’ve been all about going to outdoor movie screenings this summer and in NYC they’re happening all over the place. So I scoped out which ones I wanted to see and have it marked in my calendar. Last night, RiverFlicks for Grown-Ups was featuring “Bridesmaids” on Pier 63, at the Chelsea Piers on 23rd street and the Hudson River.
I took pictures of the neighborhood along the way. This is on 23rd street heading West. This block is so not what you expect to see in NYC or it’s where you’d dream to live if you were here. I loved the French inspired windows and the outdoor light post that reminded me of London for some reason.
This is a view towards the Highline (that little bridge like).
The Highline used to be a freight rail line in the 1930′s and since then has been turned into a public park with fantastic views of NYC.
Street art along the way..I thought this was cool because in almost any neighborhood in New York, you’ll see a tree, a street lamp, or even wire posts with sneakers hanging from them.
The entrance to Pier 63. This is a great place to take a walk along the piers and feel tranquility in NYC. Frying pan is along here too.
Believe it or not, I’d never seen this movie so it made the experience more fun.
What a nice view..hmmm now where am I going to sit and how am I getting there ??
These outdoor screenings always bring some sort of unexpected fun. This older man put on a performance with large sheets of fabric.
My toes are so bright you can see them in the dark
The view behind me. There it is..the big sign that lets you know you’re at Chelsea Piers. The park was PACKED. Unlike the movie crowd in Williamsburg..this was more chill and less about fashion.
The sun was setting and the movie was about to begin.
And even though I didn’t know where I’d sit or how I’d get there, I managed to get a spot right up front!Bridesmaids gets 2 snaps and a twist from me!
Here’s my last post on outdoor movies in Brooklyn.
See you soon for my next adventure in New York! Christine
