Saturday’s Newkirk Avenue Block Party was a great day of fun. In addition to a full schedule of live music (courtesy of Make Music New York, and coordinated by Mannix Gordon), we had Solar One, Brooklyn Compost Project, Alive Structures, and Transportation Alternatives represented; plus a paper casting workshop by Flatbush artist Kathy Levine, fitness activities with Midwood Martial Arts, and the ever-popular Recycling Game.
But the best part of the day was the simple fact that the street was closed to traffic, allowing everyone to enjoy a new (albeit temporary) public gathering place.
