Williamsburg Waterfront (more by Toby Tenenbaum)
Williamsburg Waterfront

Williamsburg Waterfront aka East River State Park, was a hoppin' but short-lived outdoor Brooklyn venue back in 2011 that was replaced by Williamsburg Park right down the street in 2012, but Williamsburg Waterfront may be making a musical comeback. Mad Decent have double confirmed that their NYC 'Block Party' this year will take place at the "Waterfront" and not the "Park" where they sort of had it last year.

UPDATE: Mad Decent got it wrong. Despite what their announcement said, and what their people double confirmed for me, AEG has just confirmed to us that the Mad Decent Block Party will in fact happen at Williamsburg Park again (and NOT Williamsburg Waterfront).

No word yet on whether this will be a trend of a one-off event in the "Waterfront" space.

Williamsburg Waterfront is also currently home to less musical gatherings like the Brooklyn Flea, Smorgasburg and this past weekend's Hot Sauce Expo.

Williamsburg Park is also still operating as a concert venue, with Shins and New Order shows already announced for summer 2013.
