Due to last years big success, streets of Williamsburg Brooklyn will be closed again to vehicles.
(from billburg.com website)
The L Magazine and Neighbors Allied for Good Growth (NAG) have partnered this year to organize the 2009 Williamsburg Walks. We invite North Brooklyn residents, visitors and merchants to celebrate the community on a pedestrian Bedford Avenue: Williamsburgâ€™s lively main drag will be closed to cars between North 4th and North 9th Streets every Saturday from June 6th to July 11th from noon to sunset.
Area non-profits and businesses will be organizing events and activities – acoustic music, urban gardening, childrenâ€™s classes, performances, and many more – and the June 13th date coincides with The Lâ€™s Northside Music and Arts Festival, which will bring even more public programming to the neighborhood.
This year, weâ€™re hoping to make the event even more enjoyable for the neighborhoodâ€”feedback was collected during the successful 2008 season that has informed many of this yearâ€™s improvements. We invite you to give your opinion and share your concerns to make this year a success.
Williamsburg Walks is also a great opportunity to support the community. Click here to learn about volunteering this summer.
If you or your organization would like to contribute to Williamsburg Walks (organize activities, donate street furniture, etc.), please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions.
