Marcus Garvey Park Amphitheater

Marcus Garvey Park Amphitheater

Marcus Garvey Park, located in the heart of East Harlem, provides pastimes for children, teens, adults, and the elderly for the entire community.  Asides from two children playgrounds, an outdoor swimming pool, a recreation center, and basketball courts, Marcus Garvey Park’s amphitheater is a major draw hosting plays and concerts in the summertime.  The goal of the project is to renovate the ampitheater by constructing a new bandshell, improve the existing acoustics, install new seats, and provide wheelchair accessible sections.  His previous firm was retained to provide civil site support for the replacement of the bandshell, additions to the existing multipurpose building, and construction of a new awning over the seating area. While at a previous firm, Mr. Schaffer prepared a comprehensive plan and cost opinion for demolition, grading, drainage, and utility improvements required for the proposed work.
