"Is it not cruel to let our city die by degrees, stripped of all her proud monuments, until there will be nothing left of all her history and beauty to inspire our children? If they are not inspired by the past of our city, where will they find the strength to fight for her future?" Jacqueline Kennedy

Karen K And The Jitterbugs Rocked Carroll Park

Judging by the crowd and the big smiles on everyone's face, Saturday's performance by Karen K And The Jitterbug in Carroll Park was a huge success. On this sunny afternoon, neighborhood kids clapped, cheered and swayed to the band's catchy tunes.
The performance was the first of this summer's much loved Carroll Park Kids Concert Series. The event was hosted in collaboration with PS 58.  Throughout the summer, there will be three more such concerts featuring some of the most beloved children's bands in Brooklyn and each benefiting a local public school.

A big thanks to organizer and neighborhood mom Simmi Degnemark and her tireless volunteers for their hard work and for bringing so much joy to the little ones and their families.

yes. I agree but hey? Are there flyers put up anywhere beyond the immediate vicinity?
I heard them all the way at my flat. Looked like a fun time anyway for all.
Sometimes I think CGP is an island unto itself. Invitation Only. :(

The event was advertised in such city-wide publications as Time Out magazine as well as in local papers and blogs.

The crowd looks white.
So if I went to a concert in east new York would the crowd look anything different than Black? Come on that is such a stupid statement.
