Five days after abruptly canceling the last installment of the Pool Parties concert series at East River State Park in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, because the promoter of the shows had not paid its bills, the nonprofit group that helps administer the park has reinstated that show, which is set for next Sunday.
The Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn said on Sunday morning that Jelly NYC, the promoter, had paid most of the money it owed for use of the park, and that two adjacent businesses to the park — a small strip along the waterfront with striking views of Midtown Manhattan — chipped in to make up the difference. Those donors were Norman and Elaine Brodsky, who are among the owners of CitiStorage; and Douglaston Development, which is building the Edge, a large luxury apartment building.
“We are pleased that Jelly was able to meet most of its obligations,” said Steve Hindy, the alliance’s chairman and the president of Brooklyn Brewery.
