A performance by the Latin Jazz Coalition, Tuesday, July 10 at 7 pm, kicks off the Live at the Gantries Free Concert Series at Gantry Plaza State Park on the Long Island City waterfront at Gantry State Plaza.
Summer 2012 heats up with six Tuesday night free outdoor concerts at Gantry Plaza State Park beginning Tuesday, July 10th. Live at the Gantries features Queens-based musicians and performers.
Live at the Gantries is a program of the Kupferberg Center for the Arts, New York State Department of Parks, Recreation & Historical Preservation and Queens Theatre. Major sponsors are Con Edison, Pepsi Co., TF Cornerstone and NYC Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer. Additional Support provided by Green Mountain Energy, Queens West Development and RCN.
Gantry Plaza State Park is a 12-acre riverside oasis that boasts spectacular views of the midtown Manhattan skyline, including the Empire State Building and the United Nations. It has earned its name from the rugged beauty of the park’s centerpieces – restored gantries. These industrial monuments were once used to load and unload rail car floats and barges. Today they are striking reminders of the waterfront’s past. Recreational facilities include basketball courts, playgrounds, handball courts, and a fishing pier with its own cleaning table.
