From Saturday’s performance of Angels & Accordions at Green-Wood Cemetery, the last of seven years of annual productions (via the Flickr photostream of EnnuiPoet):

More to come throughout the day.

What are you doing tomorrow?

Hopefully seeing Angels & Accordions at Green-Wood Cemetery.  Why?

Well, for one thing it’s going to be a beautiful day & maybe the last time all year you can see the breathtaking grounds of the Cemetery with such nice weather.

More than that, though- tomorrow is your last chance EVER to see this one-of-a-kind site-specific performance.

For the last seven years, DTE Executive Director Martha Bowers has directed the piece and produced it in collaboration with the Green-Wood Historic Fund.   Part walking tour, part performance, part guided meditation through the beautiful and richly historical Green-Wood Cemetery, Angels and Accordions brings to life a Brooklyn treasure through dance, live music, and design.

Tickets are offered at a discount if purchased in advance, so head over to the DTE site and choose the performance time (12:30pm or 4pm) you’d like to attend.

Red Hook in the News

A lot going on this week in the neighborhood.  Here’s a mini-round-up of Red Hook news from the web:

Update on LeNell’s’s LeNell

“If I’m not in Red Hook, I’m not interested in Brooklyn.”

OK, a little extreme from my point of view, but gotta respect Red Hook’s own (even if she’s currently in Mexico) Lenell Smothers.

Is there a single resident of Red Hook, current or former, who generates more news just by being themself (with the possible exclusion of Carmelo Anthony)?
