Cobble Hill resident Norah Jones will get back to what she does best — performing before adoring audiences instead of irking her window-hating neighbors — and kick off Celebrate Brooklyn with a free concert on June 9.
The performance is worthy of a banner headline — one that might erase earlier large type about the sultry singer’s battle with her neighbors over plans to add 10 windows to her swank Amity Street crib, a renovation that some locals blasted as out of touch with Cobble Hill’s aesthetic.
Eventually, the number of windows was reduced to seven in what appeared to be a backroom compromise between the singer and her neighbors.
That allows Jones to get back to making music instead of legal war. Her most-recent album, “The Fall,” has enjoyed both critical and commercial success. Nevertheless, she will have a tough act to follow — last year’s opener, David Byrne, performed before roughly 27,000 people — the largest audience in the history of the outdoor concert series.
Norah Jones at Celebrate Brooklyn at the Prospect Park band shell (enter park at Ninth Street and Prospect Park West in Park Slope) on June 9 at 8 pm. Free. For info, visit www.bricartsmedia.org.
