A Year-Round Schedule of Concerts, Movies, and Fun Events

It’s so rare in Manhattan to have such a large open space right outside your door. The two-acre landscaped plaza is the heart of the social life at Waterside Plaza, the gathering place for a world-class community. A year-round schedule of concerts, movies, and fun events make it easy to connect. But more than the scheduled events, it’s the everyday luxury of this casual physical space that naturally brings people together. Residents are drawn out of doors to enjoy the sun, stroll, watch the children play, grab a snack, browse the Web, or just catch the river breeze and watch the changing light.
