Williamsburg Walks is a series of car-free Saturday afternoons on Bedford Avenue. The idea is for people to use the closure to cars in order to rethink their public space and to offer a space to celebrate the neighborhood. The event is organized by NAG in conjunction with the NYC DOT as part of their Weekend Walks program.
The 2013 edition will happen on Sat June 8, Sat June 15 & Sat June 22nd
There will be an information meeting on Thur April 4th to discuss this year’s event. 7-830pm – Basement hall at the Ukrainian Catholic Church on N5th btwn Bedford & Berry.
Whether you are a local business, resident, or community group, this is your chance to learn about the event. Our presentation will cover all aspects — impact on the Bedford residents & businesses, ways to volunteer, how to become a programmer, the rules for sidewalk use for Bedford businesses, and much much more. Please come and share in the discussion and get excited about another year of rethinking public space on Bedford Ave.
Bedford Ave will be closed from Metropolitan Ave to N12th. The street closure will run from 1pm to 930pm. Williamsburg Walks programming will run from 3-8pm.
We are looking for community groups and artists who would like to participate. We are looking for volunteers to help set-up and clean-up. We need sponsors to help provide the $$ to create our grassy oasis. There are planty of ways for groups, businesses, and local residents to get involved.
