Bargemusic

1 Water Street, Fulton Ferry Landing

Since 1977, Bargemusic has presented chamber music in an unlikely and startlingly beautiful venue—a floating barge at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge. Both established and emerging musicians perform at Bargemusic on a small stage with the dramatic backdrop of the East River and lower Manhattan skyline.

Mission

From its inception, Bargemusic has been committed to attracting local audiences and enhancing the cultural life of New York by offering frequent, year-round performances of chamber music in a fittingly intimate setting - the type of setting in which chamber music is meant to be heard. To make that unique musical experience available to as many people as possible, Bargemusic presents 220 chamber music concerts annually - four days a week, 52 weeks a year - and offers free tickets to a variety of groups every week, plus a monthly free concert open to the community.

Outstanding musicians, nice repertoire in concerts, and the boat-rocking is subtle and pleasant. BrownPaperBag ticketing is also awesome: low fees, high flexibility. Downsides: - I just paid $40 for a "60-90 minute" concert... that was actually about 50 minutes; feel kinda short-changed. - Late door-opening (and no apologies for that), which I understand is kinda par for the course. - No bathroom on the boat; you're invited to use the bathroom at the ice creamery across the street where, unfortunately, there was a long wait when I visited.

I like the size of this place. It feels intimate. Free concert on summer Saturday afternoons.

A very unique experience - especially watching the sunset over Manhattan while listening to the classical music.

Excellent classical music and super-romantic. Gorgeous views. Also cool to bring children to some performances and they are really friendly about it.
