Brooklyn’s got talent — especially our youngest!

Starting this Wednesday, and for the next five consecutive weeks, I will proudly present my fourth annual School Lunchtime Concert Series, showcasing middle and high school students from throughout our borough offering live music and performances in Columbus Park at the steps of Brooklyn Borough Hall. Our first show will feature a rock band from PS 217 Colonel David Marcus School in Ditmas Park, as well as a dance ensemble and steel pan band from MS 354 School of Integrated Learning in Crown Heights.

Wednesday will also mark the plaza return of the popular bistro furniture from the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership! This amenity has not been at Columbus Park since 2014, when we began our project to completely renovate the condition of the old, crumbling bluestone surrounding Brooklyn Borough Hall. Now, we can enjoy a solid granite foundation in Downtown Brooklyn’s greatest open space.

Come out and support our students and their talent, all while enjoying your lunch break at the People’s House!
