The McCarren Pool concert series was a popular event for the last few summers. It was thought that the concerts were officially done for good thanks to the venue’s new renovations to be turned back into a real pool. Good news though! The concert series is setting up shop at a new location this summer, East River State Park located on North 8th and 9th Streets and Kent Avenue in Williamsburg. Confirmed by the NY Times, the Park is able to hold 6,000 fans and will boast better views. If enough sponsorship money comes through, the coordinators, Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn, hope to also put on classical and opera concerts.
