South Street Seaport will host the 4Knots Music Festival

April 15, 2011

After the developers have taken over Coney Island, The Siren Music Festival, which was held in Coney Island for ten Summers, is no more. The Village Voice has decided to start a new festival at the South Street Seaport called the 4Knots Music Festival on July 16. This means it’s going to be a much smaller music festival. I don’t see how the Seaport can have two stages like the Siren Music Festival did in Coney Island. Another thing New Yorkers will miss is being capable of escaping to Coney Island for the music festival. But, the Voice will bring in big name indie rock acts.

The construction should finished and be open to the public by Spring 2012 Those who run and bike along the area will definitely enjoy the new waterfront promenade with separate areas for cyclists and pedestrians. There is a plan to have cyclists separated from pedestrians by a wall. But, this may be changed by Community Board 1.
