JUST ANNOUNCED - Lincoln Center will present a night of disco dancing under the stars on Friday, September 12, in Hunter’s Point South Waterfront Park in Queens as part of Lincoln Center’s effort to bring its art and entertainment programs to all the boroughs of New York City. This free event is planned by the offices of Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, New York City Council Majority Leader Jimmy Van Bramer, Chair of the Cultural Affairs Committee, and Lincoln Center. “Lincoln Center and its wonderful performances and programs belong in all the boroughs, not just Manhattan,” says Jed Bernstein, President of Lincoln Center. “Great art for all is not just a pipe dream – it is a goal we are pursuing every day.”
"This upcoming event, the first of its kind in Queens in partnership with Lincoln Center, further illustrates why residents and visitors to Queens never have to cross a bridge or drive through a tunnel to enjoy top quality arts and entertainment," said Queens Borough President Melinda Katz. "I am glad to have partnered with Council member Van Bramer and Lincoln Center in planning what is sure to be a fabulous evening of music and dancing on the spectacular Queens waterfront."
“Once again I am proud to support one of Lincoln Center’s innovative programs in the Borough of Queens,” says New York City Council Majority Leader Jimmy Van Bramer. “Together we are bringing dynamic programming that only engages the community but also brings world-class productions and entertainment directly to people. There’s no better way to enjoy your Friday night than by dancing the night away with family and friends while enjoying sweeping views along the East River in Long Island City as the sun sets.”
