McCarren Park Pool, right, located on the border between Williamsburg and Greenpoint in Brooklyn, is set to become a swimming spot again, and the summer rock concerts that put it on the musical map will move to the Williamsburg waterfront. Stephanie Thayer, the executive director of the Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn, a nonprofit group that coordinated last year’s concerts, said a strip along the East River between North Eighth and North Ninth Streets that was designated a state park will hold concerts this summer, with room for 6,000 fans. The news was confirmed by the office of Joseph R. Lentol, the state assemblyman who represents Greenpoint and Williamsburg. ‚”This is the continuation of McCarren Park Pool,” Ms. Thayer said. ‚”It’s different, but it has its own exquisite beauty, with the waterfront and the skyline of Manhattan.” She said she planned to work with many of the promoters who put on events at the pool last summer, and would seek classical and opera concerts as well.
