This year's event will include a city-wide sing-along of the Beatles' song "Let It Be" at 2 p.m. on Sept.11. At 230 Fifth Avenue, the event will be held in the lobby from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. These Newmark properties will also participate: 40 Worth Street, 175 Fifth Avenue (The Flatiron Building), 200 Varick Street, 520 Eighth Avenue, 630 Ninth Avenue and 1560 Broadway.
