I Love Brookln!

I Love Brookln!

Yesterday’s Newkirk Avenue Block Party was a great success. More photos and story coming up… but I just couldn’t wait to post this one!

Newkirk Avenue Block Party!

Newkirk Avenue Block Party!

Some months ago Sustainable Flatbush was approached by New York City Streets Renaissance to sponsor a Livable Streets Block Party here in the neighborhood (this request was likely inspired by our success with last year’s Park(ing) Day event). Two weeks from tomorrow, Saturday June 21st, the party is on! We will have live music and […]

Return to the Blogosphere

Okay, it’s true: I haven’t been on the blog much these days. The last post was on April 19th; more than a day or two without posting in the blogging world is enough to make one feel like Rip Van Winkle. I could point out that a sudden (and welcome) avalanche of gainful employment took […]

Recife, Brazil: Bicycle Sound System

P1010102, originally uploaded by Sustainable Flatbush. Cargo bikes are very big here, carrying everything from huge bottles of water to sounds for the party!

Foreign Correspondent

Okay, so I’ve been a rather bad blogger for a week or two, but I have a really good excuse: I’m in Recife, Brazil for Carnaval! Needless to say it’s crazy here (in a good way), but I have a few photos to post that are relevant to the sustainability discusssion… here they come!

Flatbush Arts!

A few weeks ago I set up an online group called Flatbush Arts, and promptly notified a few local blogs. Brooklyn Junction jumped on this piece of local news and posted about it […]

Park(ing) Day coverage

Park(ing) Day coverage

Park(ing) Day 2007 in New York was a big success, with more than 20 temporary park installations throughout the city! Streetfilms has a great piece that shows most of the locations; if I hadn’t been hanging out in the grass at Cortelyou Rd. Park my first choice would have been to spend the day at […]

Cortelyou Rd. Park!

Cortelyou Rd. Park!

Yesterday was Park(ing) Day, and Sustainable Flatbush celebrated by creating Cortelyou Road Park! This neighborhood is full of greenery — majestic old-growth trees and beautiful landscaping — but it’s all private property. We are seriously lacking in community gardens, all-age recreational facilities, and public parks closer than the Parade Ground and Prospect Park (more than […]

Cacau Arcoverde Brings Brazil to Flatbush!

Event #3 also provided a special treat for the late-nighters who stayed to hear Cacau Arcoverde and Ileana Santamaria perform music and dance from Pernambuco, Brazil! We even had a roda de capoeira going for a minute (thanks to Samir). DJ Drummerman (Jeff Duneman) and I helped out on percussion too. photos by Chris Kreussling […]
