It’s Day 3 of the Brooklyn group-hug that is Northside Festival, but it’s Day 1 of Williamsburg Walks: A two day shut-down of Bedford avenue between N 4 and 9th Sts organized by the Neighbors Allied for Good Growth, the L Magazine and Project for the Public Spaces with the support of the New York City Department of Transportation Weekend Walks Program. There will be two whole days of good old fashioned sustainable fun and a chance to “rethink your public space”. There will be perfume mixing, pickle preserving demos, kids activities, walking tours, 12 public art installations, brewery tours, and a giant picnic in the middle of the street.
So bring the kids and the dogs and the bikes! Leave those clunky, ozone-hating cars at home. Check out the Williamsburg Walks website for more comprehensive listings.
