The hum of human activity makes parks the centers of society. Programming the city's open spaces has always been a key component of the Parks Department's mission, and since the inception of parks, outdoor concerts have occurred within them. Today, if you're in New York City during the summer months, one of the great joys remains heading to a park and listening to any of dozens of outdoor concerts, most of which are free. The long tradition of outdoor summer concerts in city parks and open spaces is rooted in a few choice spots, the Battery being one of them.

Television channel HBO agreed to carry the concert, and worked with Delsener to decide on Simon and Garfunkel as the appropriate act for this event.

Among the songs performed were the classics " The Sound of Silence ", " Mrs. Robinson ", and " The Boxer "; the event concluded with a reprise of Simon's song " Late in the Evening ".
