I went to the park around 9am with some friends to stake out a spot. Spent the full day there hanging with them, and also studying my Corporate Tax materials for graduate school. By the time the show began there were ~500,000 people. What a night!

"Well it's great to do a neighbourhood concert"....

I remember watching this on TV and buying the album. I only knew a couple of S & G songs before it, but I fell in love with their songs after hearing this.

In my one and only visit to New York back in June 1991 I spent quite a bit of time in Central Park trying to imagine what it was like when that show was on., and exactly where about in the park it took place !

Watched the HBO airing many many times. I have the show on vinyl.  The version of Bridge over troubled water is one of the great vocal performances, an absolute showcase. 

Fantastic show and allaround moment.
