It was a beautiful Sunday, and some Upper West Siders enjoyed it by dancing to a solo performance on 83rd between Riverside Drive and West End Avenue. The street was closed to traffic from 3 to 5pm, and the live concert featured “singer and nightclub performer” Sal Soloman. Kids sat on blankets, neighbors brought their dogs, and others just watched from their stoops.
Here’s a video of the event, taken by Rob Cullen:
“He sings better than Sinatra!” read a flyer posted for the event.
“It was an hour-long concert. It was a great time watching neighbors come out not knowing what was going on and starting to dance in the street,” says Rob, who took the video.
