Whether you’re inside or outdoors this week, stay cool New Yorkers. If you brave the heat and head to the Rockaways, take a moment to admire George Bates’ work on your way. The artist distills the essence of the beachside community that surrounds Beach 36th Street with a spirited rendition in glass. The work achieves its musical title with waves and crescendos of color, pattern and form.
