Newport Beach’s Annual Beach Party will take place along the Hudson River’s waterfront Newport Green (700 Washington Blvd.) on July 13th from 5-8pm.
There will be two live performances by native rock band The Fuzzy Lemons, and the nationally-famed The Benjamins. Local restaurants Bwe Café, Raaz, Loradella’s and Cosi will be selling food and bevvies.
Newport Beach, if you didn’t already know, is: 8,000 square feet of authentic, castle-building sand, dozens of Adirondack chairs and large colorful umbrellas. Take in picture-perfect views of the Manhattan skyline, from the Empire State building to the One World Trade Center.
