Catch some free music at the Seaport Summer Concert Series

Written by

South Street Seaport is an NYC landmark with an exceptional amount of history behind it. It's a rare spot that can serve as a case-study in Robert Sullivan's Rats: Observations on the History & Habitat of the City's Most Unwanted Inhabitants and host a nearly riot-inducing Drake/Hanson concert. More recently, the area has been under heavy post-Sandy development, with beer gardens and outdoor dining popping up around the plaza.

We can report that there's some music happening too. Catch smooth-jazz sax man David Sanborn with the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble this July 4. Then in August, electro-pop musician Robert Delong and Vampire Weekend side project Baio will headline a Thursday night gig. Those will go down on the corner of Fulton and Front Streets, only a few blocks from storied rat hangout Edens Alley, which, like the music, is totally free to explore.
