    Docked beneath the Brooklyn Bridge, Bargemusic is a floating chamber-music venue, an old coffee barge converted into a homey den with a thrilling view of the Manhattan skyline. Concerts celebrate European composers of the classical period (and often jazz, Latin and 20th-century musicians as well) and are typically performed four days a week, 52 weeks a year. To make first-rate performances available to anyone with an ear for classical chamber music, Bargemusic hosts a free-admission Neighborhood Family Concert on Saturday afternoons at 4pm (see for a schedule). The room accommodates only 170 or so people, so get there early—the most rewarding views of both the musicians and Manhattan are in the front rows. And don't forget to slap on a seasickness patch. —PT
