You know I love walking through Bryant Park, but it’s even more fun when it’s time for the Good Morning America Summer Concert Series! I get a kick out of seeing the crowds and stars, not to mention all the prep for these events. In years past, I’ve stopped to listen to the sound checks for Rascal Flats, The Beach Boys and Michelle Branch. The crowds last year for Miley Cyrus were huge, wrapping around the park at least twice. I suspect they’ll be as big this year for her and my daughter’s latest loves — The Jonas Brothers.
So if you’ll be in New York City on a Friday, or just have Friday free to come hang out, check out the GMA Concert Series, but be sure to arrive early! The crowds start lining up well before 7 a.m. when the concerts “officially” start. (Click here to check web cam images of the park which catch the concert series. The webcam updates every 10 minutes).
