Every year at the Dîner en Blanc, there’s a magical moment. At Bryant Park this year, it was mid-dinner when the back facade of the New York Public Library became packed with guests dancing and drinking wine (in public, *gasp!*). Last year at Lincoln Center it was when the 3,000 guests flooded the geometric plaza, which we captured in a time lapse video.
We’ve been part of the organizing committee for the dinner, as one of the co-head leaders this year, in partnership with Dîner en Blanc International, Kim’s Events and French Tuesdays. We’ll let the photographs tell the story.
