Coney Island, NY - Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz’s Seaside Summer Concert Series could be moved out of Coney Island’s Asser Levy Park this summer while the future of a massive amphitheater planned there for larger shows plays out in court.

Markowitz had been hosting concerts at Asser Levy Park since 1991 despite a city law prohibiting amplified sound within 500 feet of religious institutions and schools when services are taking place.

Sea Breeze Jewish Center and Temple Beth Abraham in Brighton Beach are across the street from the existing band shell at Asser Levy Park, and both say they host services daily.

Geoffrey Croft of New York City Park Advocates, one of the opponents, said he has been informed that the city agreed to move the concerts for this summer.

Markowitz, through a spokesman , wouldn’t confirm much.

Sources told NY1 that one possible location to relocate the concerts is the parking lot of the New York Aquarium across Surf Avenue.

The case returns to Brooklyn Supreme Court April 7.

If they move it to the aquarium, then all the seals and penguins will complain about the noise.

If Midwood Field is not workable, what about Marine Park as another viable choice. There is parking available, which is better than the current location or even Midwood Field. Several years ago State Senator Martin Golden ran shows at Marine Park and some were very nice.

Or what about Walt Whitman Auditorium at Brooklyn College, where it used to be held when it rained?

Midwood would be great but there is Edward Murrow High School right there and there is a shul on E. 14 between K and L. Marine Park would be good if it isn't on the side of the Marine Park Jewish Center which is also a shul (the concerts would have to be on the Ave U side). How about the parking lot at Caesar's Bay? A beautiful venue would be at the Botanical Gardens--I certainly would pay the Gardens admission to go to a concert (depending of course who is playing). gutte voch
