Activating streets to support NYC small businesses

Oct 19, 2022

This past Sunday, Street Lab tested two new programs supporting small businesses on the Open Street on East 115th Street in front of La Marqueta—One Big Table, featuring free food samples from market vendors, and Meet a Small Business, featuring a plant-potting workshop run by Urban Garden Center. Both are made possible by a grant from the NYC Department of Small Business Services supporting our Streets Alive initiative. We also hosted WNYC at One Big Table, where people shared stories for the radio—more about that soon!
