Friday, September 19th, Park(ing) Day,
Park(ing) Day is a national event in which people in cities all over the country reclaim parking spots for one day, transforming them into vibrant, functional public spaces. Time’s Up! is setting up from 10am – 5pm at our reclaimed park at the corner of 7th ave. South and Charles Street in front of the Birdbath Bakery. We will have grass and lounge chairs and a bike repair stand along with free beverages and pastries donated by the Birdbath Bakery. You can call Judy at 917.405.1544 for more information.
