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 three Saturdays in June: June 8th, June 15th & June 22nd
Bedford Ave will be closed from Metropolitan Ave to N12th. The street closure will run from Noon to 9:30 pm each Saturday. Williamsburg Walks programming will run from 2-8pm.
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.
