Over the weekend, we saw construction crews working on the 43-29 Crescent Street lot. The crews are preparing for ‘The Lot LIC Music and Film Series,’ which will be coming to Court Square for 15 weekends starting in August. The lot was previously home to Parting, a sculpture installed by Socrates Sculpture Park.1

Two festival producers with years of experience are joining with M. Wells Steakhouse to bring music, film and food to an empty lot next to the chop house on fifteen nights during what organizers are calling “The Lot LIC Music and Film Series.” […] The concerts will kick off at the beginning of August, and run on Thursdays and Saturdays through the end of September, an end of the summer series specifically designed to avoid competition with the city’s larger events, many of which peter out in August.

Those weren’t construction workers, it was artist Tamara Johnson and her crew installing The Lot’s new public art project, Backyard Pool:
Backyard Pool will open on August 2nd from 3-5PM, coinciding with the launch of the Lot LIC Music & Film Series.
