Lower Manhattan's all free summer arts festival kicks off tonight with a block party in the heart of Battery Park City. Getting in on the act are Conrad New York, Goldman Sachs, and area restaurants and retailers. After you're done sampling what the hood has to offer and engaging in activities suitable for the entire family, you can catch a special performance by People Get Ready, a Brooklyn-based rock group that blends performance art and music.
