Jazz Age Lawn Party
If you want to experience NYC’s storied past, we’re sure you could hear some interesting history on a nice walking tour, or see some cool artifacts at a top-notch museum exhibition. But if you want to fully immerse yourself in one of the city’s most legendary epochs, you have to catch the Jazz Age Lawn Party. Taking over an entire small island every summer, just a quick boat ride from the Financial District, this celebration gives you the fullest possible experience of the infamous decadence of the roaring 20s. There’s old-school competitions like pie baking and Charleston dancing, vintage aesthetics like custom portraits and an automobile show, and, of course, tons of music, headlined by the party’s creator: the fittingly-whimsical Michael Arenella & His Dreamland Orchestra. There’s no official dress code, but if you happened to bring your favorite flapper dress or straw boater, you won’t stand out. For more information, visit the Jazz Age Lawn Party website.
