Adding reading to Open Streets in Red Hook

Jul 21, 2020

Every Tuesday this summer, Red Hook Initiative is organizing activities for kids and families on the West 9th St Open Street in Brooklyn. We’re supporting this community effort by deploying PLAY NYC, our program to support safe, hands-free play for children on the streets, including a new no-touch obstacle course. We’re also lending Red Hook Initiative one of our pop-up reading room kits, with benches and a stage case that unfolds into a library. To keep it safe, organizers including PS 15 will provide books in the reading room that can then be taken home. Lots more to come, and we’re excited to be playing a role in reopening Red Hook. Thanks to Mayor’s Action Plan for Neighborhood Safety/Building Healthy Communities initiative.
