Reason Eleventy Billion I Love Astoria, New York

Reason Eleventy Billion: The free outdoor summer cinema at Socrates Sculpture Park, which is located on the East River and has a phenomenal view of Manhattan. Each Wednesday they show a film from a different country. Tonight’s film was the lusciously animated “Sita Sings the Blues,” a film based on Indian Ramayana. (Because the artist is cool like that, you can watch the whole thing online in HD, for free.) They also hire a local restaurant to cater food, serving up whatever national cuisine the movie is about. So, tonight, under the stars and surrounded by fireflies, me and my friend Diana chowed on samosas while watching a great movie, with a 1,000 or so other Astoria residents. Also, Charlie and other canine amigos are welcome, so how could I leave him at home?

Tonight’s film was brought to you by:

And enjoyed by Joy and Charlie…

and hundreds of others…
