Performing Music Banned From Strawberry Fields In Central Park

I recently mentioned that performing music or singing near the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park had been banned due to its recent designation as a “Quiet Zone. ”

Now, it seems that Strawberry Fields has been claimed as a Quiet Zone as well.  The city argues that they don’t want these particular areas to be overwhelmed by groups of musicians playing with amplified sound, but the ban applies to non amplified acoustic performances as well.

If you think it makes little sense for the city to ban people from singing and playing an acoustic guitar in a section of the park officially designated to John Lennon, check out the link below from strawberryfieldsnyc.com

A unique music hall and restaurant is set to open this summer on South Division Street in Peekskill. The combination music hall and restaurant will serve as a complement to the Peekskill Center for the Arts around the corner. Read more at the City Of Peekskill website…

“Through the ingenuity of a third generation piano refurbisher, the City of Peekskill will soon be home to perhaps the finest combination restaurant and music venue not only in Westchester County, but the Hudson Valley. The F- Sharp Restaurant and Music Hall has been dream of John Ford for most of this decade.”

Bob Dylan’s Greenwich Village

In honor of Bob Dylan’s 70th birthday, Off The Grid takes an interesting look at Greenwich Village, then and now…

“What would Dylan think of today’s Greenwich Village?  Would he miss his lost stomping grounds?  Would he approve of the changes?  We have a lot of talents at GVSHP, but unfortunately ESP isn’t one of them.  So, all we can do is take a walk through time and revisit the once-thriving folk scene of which  Bob Dylan was such a vital part.”
