Big Crowd Hears Smokey Robinson at Brooklyn Concert Saturday

In spite of the rain, a big crowd showed up to hear Smokey Robinson play at a free concert Saturday morning at Cadman Plaza Park in Brooklyn Heights.

It was the high point of the Recovery Rally, sponsored by A&E to “raise awareness that addiction is a treatable disease and recovery is possible.”

Hundreds of participants marched across the Brooklyn Bridge to Cadman Plaza. (There were no midnight or 7 a.m. sound checks this year. Yay!)

After the show, there were big traffic jams on Cadman Plaza West as buses picked up the participants in the middle of the street. Oddly, there were no police directing traffic, as is typical during an event of this size.
