First Renderings Of Williamsburg Park, Site Of This Summer’s Waterfront Concerts


We previously posted about the Open Space Alliance moving this summer’s Waterfront concert series from East River Park to an industrial lot on Kent Avenue between N. 11th and N. 12th. Now OSA has announced that the new space will be called Williamsburg Park and released the first renderings of what the venue will look like.

Granted, the images have graphics right out of a Nintendo 64 game. And a major change is that this season’s venue doesn’t have a waterfront view of Manhattan. But some changes are good, like how there will no longer be a restricted area for drinking beer.

OSA also made its first band announcement, Swedish punk band REFUSED, who will be performing on June 18th. The series begins on June 1st.
