Bloomberg to decide on Summer Concert Series

Mayor Bloomberg announced that he plans to decide Tuesday whether or not he will sign off on a bill that will allow the Summer Concert

CONEY ISLAND - Mayor Bloomberg announced that he plans to decide Tuesday whether or not he will sign off on a bill that will allow the Summer Concert Series to continue.

Residents say the concerts just fill the neighborhoods with noise.  Two synagogues in the area even filed lawsuits, saying the concerts are violating city law. The lawsuit is based on a law that prohibits amplified sound within 500 feet of houses of worship during services.

Those against the summer series protested Monday at City Hall.

The city says if the program is approved, it would study the 500-foot rule while the concerts continue.

Concerts are expected to start on Thursday.
