SUMMER IN FULL SWING IN LOWER MANHATTAN-Cobblestone Streets, Historic Pier, Fireworks, Live Music All Part of Summer at South Street Seaport

( NEW YORK, June 2007 – With New York harbor and the Brooklyn Bridge as the backdrop, the South Street Seaport is home to a wide variety of summer activities, many of which are free.

South Street Seaport’s Pier 17 is designated as the only downtown location for viewing New York City’s annual Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks as part of the River to River Festival. The evening gets started early, at 2 p.m., with a dj spinning music for the gathering crowd of New Yorkers. At approximately 9 p.m. a breath-taking pyrotechnic display launches above the harbor.

Also, summer marks the return of Seaport Music, one of the New York’s most acclaimed, annual free indie music series, presented by the River to River Festival. At 7 p.m. every Friday night from June 29 – August 29, thousands of music fans flock to the Seaport to see and hear performances by critically acclaimed national and international recording artists – from the burgeoning to the legendary. This summer’s highlights include Fujiya and Miyagi (7.6), The
National (8.17) Camera Obscura (8.24), and Battles (8.31), among others.

On Thursday nights, from July 19 to August third, the Seaport teams up with New York radio station 98.7 KISS-FM to present Soul Summer Nights featuring recording breaking and established R&B and soul artists such as Ruben Studdard (7.19), Leela James (8.16) and Christette Michelle (8.23), among others. Additional details and the complete schedule of free concerts are available at

Yet another special night of music is scheduled for 8 p.m., Thursday, July 12, as Brooklyn Philharmonic returns to the Pier 17 stage for a special night of classical music. The Brooklyn Philharmonic made its debut at the Seaport in June by performing live to a massive fireworks display as part of the annual Target Children’s Day and Fireworks.

In addition, on any given summer day, visitors will find the Seaport is home to many special events, mobile tours and walk-a-thons, including the Crystal Light Mobile Tour (7.14), Nickelodeon Slime Across America (7.24), the Special Olympics Duck Derby (8.6), the New York State YoYo Contest (8.11), and the New York State Deaf Exposition (8.19), among others.
