NY Philharmonic Concerts in the Parks + Fireworks
June 14 – 19, 2022
The NY Philharmonic Concerts in the Parks is back with the usual and wonderful fireworks displays following each musical performance (except for the last indoor occurrence in Staten Island).
We’ve been to these in past years and it’s always been a joy to see so many New Yorkers and tourists gathering on the grass within the Big Apple’s green wonder known as Central Park. Yours truly can recall one time when fireworks display in Central Park didn’t take off at all due to inclement weather. Here’s hoping this year’s weather is near perfect for these events.
Of course, they’re not limited to Manhattan. As you’ll see below, they take place in all of our boroughs.
Here’s the listing:
Tuesday, June 14 at 8:00 pm in Van Cortlandt Park, Bronx (fireworks to follow)
