Free concerts every Sunday evening against NYC skyline

Summer is right around the corner, and that means the 2016 Hamilton Park Sunday Concert Series will once again begin, highlighting local talent.

The series is a chance to relax with friends and family and enjoy an evening under the stars as night falls and the New York City skyline lights up. The free series offers country and jazz, classic rock and soul music.

Concerts are every Sunday evening beginning at 5 p.m. and ending at 7 p.m. Hamilton Park is located on Boulevard East and Duer Place in Weehawken. Anyone interested in a little night music can look forward to a full lineup of free concerts in June, July and August.
