It was lunchtime on sunny day and the crowd in downtown Brooklyn was being treated to a free open-air concert.
Schoolchildren from PS 27 in Red Hook and PS 276 in Canarsie gathered near the fountain in front of Borough Hall to sing and dance. Those on stage put their hearts into the performance, but the audience was a tiny bit distracted.
A bunch of kids from the surrounding neighborhood scampered away from the parents and babysitters who’d brought them out to enjoy the sunshine, began dancing in front of the stage, and effortlessly stole the show.
