Dancing on the Rooftops

Last night Dennis' brother, Drew, invited us along to take in some culture and dance performances on a rooftop in Bushwick. Since Drew rarely leaves Manhattan for Brooklyn we knew this was something worth checking out.

The event was called HOOT and was described as "A concert that promises to be exhilarating! Set on a rooftop overlooking the Manhattan skyline, this must-see summer event features the work of LiNK! the Movement, Synthesis Dance Project, Pushing Progress, The Mantis Project, Molly Misgalla, Chris Hale, Jamie Jackson, vocalist- Bettina Sheppard, recording artist- Lijie and more! Come and enjoy an evening of diverse dance and live music, while sipping a cool beverage."

The first act had a gorgeous sunset as the backdrop and the second act was set against a purple and pink lightning storm along the Manhattan skyline - it was one of those things that make you say "Ah yes, now I remember why I live in NYC."

During intermission we watched someone eat a steak at their desk.

It got cold when the sun set.
