“I happened to pass by the Jelly concerts when I was riding my bike through Williamsburg," the senator said today, "and I was amazed at the thousands of people who lined the streets to come to the concerts.

When I heard that the concerts might be canceled, I couldn’t understand why, given that this is exactly what our parks are supposed to be for, and I am going to do everything I can to see that they continue.” [ArtsBeat/NYT]
