“Well, from what Alastair, Ken and Christopher say, it looks as if music fans (and maybe bicyclists) have been the luckiest Governors Island visitors so far, both for the quality and sheer number of events.

The permit process must be deterring amateur concert promoters — thank goodness — and yes, as a tourist attraction, a pop concert feels like a more festive destination than a theater marathon. (The party can start on the boat.) Pop concerts are also used to building their own infrastructures, and audiences are prepared for outdoor, standing-room shows. And of course, unlike the situation for the visual arts or dance, there is immediate big money to be made from concert tickets for Grizzly Bear or 50 Cent. Corporate sponsors have been paying to produce many of the better events.

Summer in New York City is a riotously competitive time for outdoor concerts — Summerstage, Celebrate Brooklyn, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, P.S. 1, Jelly NYC and other series are all presenting first-rate shows, many of them free and more convenient at exit time — but Governors Island has held its own this year.” [NY TIMES]

That quote is from a series of stories the NY Times is doing on Governors Island.

The pictures in this post are a second set from Sunday night’s Converse-sponsored free show (the first set is HERE). Sunday’s show was also the last (for now) oo the “Gone to Governors” series (there are more pay shows coming up though). It’s been a fun summer of ferry rides and scenic views on “The Beach”.
