East River State Park in Williamsburg

The last of East River State Park’s summer pool party concerts is back on track for next weekend — less than a week after being cancelled over unpaid bills — after two prominent real estate families chipped in to help shoulder the costs, according to the New York Times. The Williamsburg concert series — which will showcase Delorean and Dominique Young Unique, among other yet-to-be-announced performers next Sunday — is run and promoted by Jelly NYC. The Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn, which helps operate the park, said Jelly had paid most of the money it owed as of last weekend and that the rest came from Norman and Elaine Brodsky, partial owners of CitiStorage, and Douglaston Development, which is building apartment complex the Edge nearby. This isn’t the first glitch for the Pool Parties, which began in 2006 at the McCarren Park Pool, now under renovation. Last summer, the Open Space Alliance threatened not to renew Jelly’s contract for 2010 because of safety concerns and only relented after Senator Charles Schumer intervened. [NYT]
