Sway to the Music at BargeMusic

Even if you're not a diehard classical music fan, you'll likely still enjoy a night at BargeMusic.  You can visit this renovated barge five nights a week and feel the water move beneath you, as you take in the beautiful music.  The various performers that come through BargeMusic always impress the audience as their music vibrates off the wooden interior.

Though some people think this venue is a bit of a chore to get to from Manhattan, it's just outside the City, so it doesn't really take very long to get there.  Also, this unique experience is absolutely worth the trip for all music-lovers.  However, if you get seasick, you may want to take some medication before you head to one of these concerts.
