June Rolls in With NewFest, Summer at Water Taxi Beach

Mark the first weekend in June with outdoor music, iconic New York photography and a spin through a film festival.  Matt Maggiacomo gives you the highlights.

*Start the weekend in Chelsea for NewFest, the New York LGBT Festival.  One entry generating a lot of buzz is the closing night premier of "Pop Star on Ice," a playful documentary about olympic skater Johnny Weir.

*Head over to the Not Fade Away Gallery for a 70s photography of Allan Tennenbaum.  The exhibit captures the New York music, art, and nightlife scenes of the time -- including iconic photos of Studio 54.

*In the mood for some music?  TriBeCa's new music festival, NextGen, features classical music by composers in their 20s and 30s.  The festival takes place at 41 White Street.

*Head out to Queens to Water Taxi Beach where mixmaster DJ Victor Franco will keep the beat while the cheap drinks flow.
