MORNINGSIDE HEIGHTS, Manhattan (WABC) -- People lined up outside the Cathedral of St. John the Divine on Monday for a New York tradition - a free Memorial Day performance by the New York Philharmonic.

Set beneath the gothic arcs and the stained glass windows, the city's orchestra played to a packed house.

Next door, on the public green, the music from the performance was piped in for those who wanted to enjoy both the music and a warm outdoor New York night.
