An event that may make you fall in love with New York City all over again. —Time Out New York

Please join us for this beloved Poets House tradition that celebrates the poetry of New York City. We’ll parade from City Hall across the bridge, enjoying readings by our guest poets, including a sunset rendition of Whitman’s "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry" by Mark Doty. This year, we honor Naomi Shihab Nye with the Elizabeth Kray Award for dedicated service to poetry. A festive dinner in DUMBO will follow.

Tickets begin at $250 ($225 for Poets House Members). Reservations are required. For details or questions, contact Krista Manrique at (212) 431-7920, ext. 2830 or krista@poetshouse.org
