After hearing my friend gush about her summer internship with City Parks Foundation, the people she met, the places she traveled, and of course, the artists she saw, I eagerly anticipated what my summer would be like as a Marketing and Communications Intern. I looked forward to working shows, discovering new artists, and meeting my new coworkers.

My summer with City Parks Foundation was an incredible experience enriched with an unforgettable staff, insane performances, and endless learning! During my internship I met dozens of CPF employees both in the office and onsite. It was unbelievable to discover the passion and excitement they all felt for this organization’s mission and the performing arts. Their kindness and enthusiasm made working feel a little less like work.

When I sat down to write a blog post about Red Hook, the neighborhood that would host the first of SummerStage’s citywide performances, I began to realize how unique my summer internship was going to be. The week of programming in Red Hook was really exciting, and it offered an impressive range that would appeal to a diversity of the residents. A few days before the Red Hook shows kicked off, another intern and I got to leave the office early and hand out flyers.

For our first week of shows in the Bronx, SummerStage hits the historic Crotona Park! With over 120 acres of land including a 3 acre lake, the park provides myriad recreation opportunities for the surrounding community. The natural beauty reaches its peak in the summer months as the park’s many trees flourish with life. We are excited to bring programming to this beautiful landscape.
