Residency launched to support Avenue B Open Street, Lower East Side

Apr 16, 2021

We’re out to support New York City neighborhoods that are hosting newly-created Open Streets, and here’s an example of how we’re doing it. We’ve committed our PLAY and Street Marker programs to land every Friday afternoon on the Avenue B Open Street (between E 12th and E 13th Streets) and transform the block into a place for play and creativity in partnership with Loisaida Open Streets Community Coalition. PLAY NYC features a colorful obstacle course that offers safe, hands-free play for children on closed-off streets, and Street Marker offers a way for people to make beautiful chalk patterns and murals together. Thanks NYC Council Member Carlina Rivera for joining us on our first day out. Our work on this street is made possible with support from Con Edison. And we’re looking for new sponsors who want to help us support more Open Streets this summer. Get in touch!
