Starting Sept. 5, for four Sundays, car-free Sundays returns to Clinton Hill. Move About Myrtle is part of the Department of Transportation’s Weekend Walks program. Each of the four Sundays will feature events and activities for kids of all ages.
Kicking off the program, the first Sunday was a huge success, with mural-making with Ellie Balk, food prep classes and free yoga. Week 2 will prove continued success with Soul Summit, a Food Fest, recycling 101, and a world-renowned dog artist. The Brooklyn Food Coalition’s Good Food Fest will also take over the Vanderbilt to Clinton block! For a block-by-block summary of the September 9th events, check out Myrtle Minutes for more info.
Upcoming weeks will include: “The Case of the Curious Pedestrian” will present playful public art projects and performances to the Avenue on Sept. 19, the FDNY Smoke House on Sept. 19, the first ever bike/scooter/big wheel parade from Hall to Clermont of Sept. 26, sidewalk chalking contest with prizes Sept. 26, and BAMcafe featured artists DJ Idlemind, Le Grand Baton, and Fifth Nation on Sept. 19 and Sept. 26.
So enjoy the remainder of the nice weather by using the streets as public space and enjoy some free stuff!
